Hi, friends! Some of you guys said you enjoyed my posts on my recent mini home remodeling projects so I thought I would share my new coffee nook decorations today!
Sorry, it’s a little dark, but it’s 115F here so every window in the house is shut at all times. I’m pretty excited about how it turned out! I’ve had a vision for this little corner for over a year since we first moved in and our “coffee nook” looked like this:
I’ve had the chest for a while, almost a year now actually. It’s the 6 Blair Chest by Mercury Row which I got from Wayfair. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like it’s in stock anymore. They have similar ones that you can write on though! Now I just need to bribe a friend with some serious calligraphy skills to write the little labels because my skills are seriously lacking!
I’ve also had these little coffee plates since my college roommate (and still one of my very best friends) and I decorated our first apartment out of the dorms! I can’t believe I moved with them so many times and they never broke!
I know I got them at Kirkland home store because I remember being confused the whole time I was in that store. I thought it was affiliated with Costco so I wouldn’t be able to buy anything without a membership, no, definitely not.
The rest of the decorations I picked up at Hobby Lobby! My MIL gave me a gift card there for Mother’s Day, she knows I love to pick up blog props from there. When I went in there though they were having their 40% decor sale! So I decided to finally finish my coffee nook.
The sugar container contains collagen, not sugar. The creamer container contains popsicle sticks for stirring, but they are still cute! I got the set from this eclectic hamburger place Mr. Hungry’s Grandma loves called McAlpines.
I love this But First, Coffee sign to display special coffee mugs that no one is allowed to use anyway. The blue on the very right was a gift to my nephew from his great Grandma, but is rusted out, so not usable but makes a pretty decoration.
The middle one a gift I got my Grandma my first year in college, she used it every day until she passed. The last one is one I got from the dollar store that I LOVE and I’m afraid it will get ruined.
A while back I read a minimalist book that really helped me learn how to make use or get rid of stuff. The book’s point wasn’t that you had to get rid of everything to minimize, but if you have stuff you are holding onto for sentimental value tucked away, maybe try to make use of it.
Now that my Grandma’s coffee cup is hanging there I get to see it and think of her every single day, which makes me so happy. So much more happy than if it was still sitting in the back of the cabinet.
Hope you guys like it and get some inspiration out of it! See you tomorrow for Friday Favorites!
