Repurposed Coffee Stand and K-Cup Storage
So as I get older and wiser, I drink more and more coffee. With that comes a lot of counter clutter and a serious collection of single serve coffee (k-cups). I’m sure I’m not alone with the mess of different brands and other goodies we need to make that perfect cup of Joe. I finally had a light bulb moment; a way to clean up the mess, save space and put my grandmothers old sewing drawers to good use.
What I did:
Paint: After cleaning, I painted the old drawers with Shabby Paints in White Ice and distressed with a wet sanding block.
This brought the beautiful details to life.
Find a top: I used a piece of wood from a broken table. Just about anything will work. I might even change it out to barn wood when I have some left over from another project. Plywood, scrap wood of any kind should do the trick.
Cut to size: Any excuse to get out my power tools.
Prep for stain: If it has an existing finish on it and you want to stain to enhance the wood grain, sand the old finish off. For a more finished look, I used my sander to round the edges.
Stain: I applied one coat of our Dark Roast Gelato Gel Stain with a damp Shabby Applicator Sponge.
Attach: Before attaching the top with screws, drill pilot holes to prevent splitting the wood.
Now you have the perfect coffee maker stand and built in storage for your K-cups and other coffee supplies.
