I honestly don’t know why it has taken me so long to put together a coffee bar cart! I really love having my coffee supplies, (minus the cream) all in one spot, and that it is not on my counter tops! My kitchen feels so much cleaner and less cluttered now that I have a coffee bar cart.
When my friend Nicole at Grace Filled Farmhouse posted her new coffee sign collection on Instagram and it inspired my to put together my own coffee bar. I had originally intended to keep my coffee bar on the counter but once I added the sign it just felt too cluttered. Then the idea to put together a coffee bar cart came to me!
I had this vintage cart that I picked up at a garage sale this last summer that hadn’t found its spot yet. It has just been a catch all of random things that ended up in the office. It was the perfect size to use as my coffee bar cart.
Once I got the idea to put together a coffee bar cart the rest of it came together really quickly.
I first started with the essentials. I already had the round Hearth and Hand tray on the counter holding my coffee supplies. I moved it to the top of the cart to serve as a base, then added my Chemex, Rae Dunn sugar bowl, and a cup with my coffee spoons. The two chippy corbels I picked up at a vintage market in Michigan. They came from some old houses in Detroit that were going to be torn down. I love having a bit of history from ‘home’ on my coffee bar cart.
I added some of my favorite eucalyptus to a pitcher to add some greenery to the cart along with a candle from my friend Tamara at Bridgeway Scented Market. I have several of her candles and wax melts and they are all so lovely! They smell absolutely wonderful! This scent is called The Cottage, It is a very light and airy spring scent. I just love it!
We got married October 7th, so I like to add little ways to incorporate that into my decor in subtle ways, this tin number 7 sign from Hobby Lobby was the perfect way to do that.
I finished off the bottom of the coffee Bar cart with a heavy duty wire basket where I store some extra white plates and my Chemex Coffee Filters. Next to that I placed one of my vintage scales.
I could’t be happier with my coffee bar cart!
