No Cost Home Coffee Station

Took cups, tea bags and coffee out of the cabinets. Then grouped our two coffee makers in one location. Lastly, I shopped my house to find items I could re-purpose for this station.
Finished Coffee Station
Our coffee makers were on opposite sides of our kitchen sink. Just moving them together was better than that! Then I began to place other coffee making items. The amber glass pig tray is re-purposed.
Step One
My Shenango sugar and cream pitcher came out of the cabinet.The vintage canning jar holds my powdered creamer. Its been fitted with the top of a salt canister for easy pouring. Cream pitcher is now holding used spoons.
Grouping for the coffee fixings.
I thought my K-cups would look good in this small casserole dish but in the end used a pyrex glass bowl.
The tea bags and Shenango mugs came out of hiding also. The canoe shelf is repurposed to house the tea bag and coffee filters.

    Your adorable station prompted me to share this image with you! But maybe you have seen it here on HT as I posted this pix in answer to a question someone had asked. If you have seen it, excuse my redundancy, if not here's the picture's backstory: Once upon a time I new a gardner/ architect named Eric Sternfels. He created lamps from cups and saucers. The attached picture is something he created that is posted on Flickr.
