A Throne for the Coffee Monster

5 Hours
I have a confession to make. I hate coffee. I hate the taste. I hate the smell. Fortunately Prince Charming only drinks one cup each day, so a Kcup monster is a perfect solution. However, do you know what I hate more than coffee? I hate appliances on the counter...and the Kcup monster is too big to put away each day.
Me being....me.....the woman who thinks everything should be pretty....decided if I had to look at the monster, it was going to be sitting on something pretty.
Here's my solution.
I found this beautiful buffet on Craigslist. Just the right size for the space I had in the "eat in" part of my house.
It has great "inlaid" detail on the top.
With a fresh coat of chalk paint & some dark wax, the detail shows nicely (I left that beautiful top alone).
The coffee monster has a new throne & there's an added functional benefit....
Besides hiding all the coffee supplies...
The cabinet doors turned out to be a great place to store our "bar". Shelves in the back of the cabinets are just the right size for wine & margarita glasses & the front of the cabinets are tall enough even for the tallest liquor & wine bottles.
Hey, a girl who hates coffee has got to drink something!
Prince Charming helped me with this great pallet shelf to finish out the "coffee bar".
What do you think?

    Bethany, I do understand the smell of coffee and worst is the smoke because I grew up with my mom doing that 24/7 and I hated it. It was just too much. My mom would always get mad at me for breaking the ciggits in hopes that she would just quit that but it never happened. The piece of furniture you did is so pretty.
