It all started with a coffee machine....

Thought I would show you our latest corner that we got finished up in the past few weeks.  We received a Keurig coffee machine for Christmas .... even though I have a huge island, I don't have alot of extra cupboard space beside the stove area in our kitchen.  However,,,,we did have this wall that needed a little somethin!


Here is the before, the first time we saw inside the house.
Note the fan, the tile and carpet, the solid white door...



Here's the after, taken from the same spot.
No more fan, continuous flooring, a bright patio door window,
and a handy little coffee station!


Here are the details:

We were wanting to use another old door and a cupboard that we had.
Things just weren't working out as planned with our idea, and the little cupboard
was a wee bit short, and it wasn't looking quite right and needed some major 
tweaking....here is a bit of a blurry picture!


So, Darrell and I were on a mission to find the right cupboard.
And we found just the right one at the Brick...Solid wood, interesting handles, 
and just the right amount of distressing! Even came with some baskets
but I knew I would just use the shelves.   Bonus!


I also wanted some kind of shelf and hooks to hang coffee mugs from.
I picked up a cupboard door panel from the ReStore, painted it and hung a
row of hooks that I found at Target. 





  The little shelf unit above was from
Winners.  It was damaged, but I knew we could fix it with a little bit of glue.
I also turned the cupboard upside down,,,so I would have the little shelf on the
top.  This will be fun to decorate for different seasons!


A quick Iphone picture sent off to Darrell to see if he thought it would be fixable!  
Whatever did we do without cell phones!!  I hate em and I love em!!







And what is a cuppa coffee without some yummy dessert!!



Thanks for stoppin by the country today...

It all looks beautiful, Dawna! Love seeing the light streaming in from the patio door.

What a lovely little spot for your coffee, and it makes a lovely scene as you walk in. It was nice before, but now it is really really nice!! xx

WOW..I kept scrolling between the before and after images because the transformation is remarkable. I love it. The flooring, the cupboard, the new door... it really goes to show how continuity such as we see in your flooring can really unify a space. Of course the lighting coming in the door is amazing as well. Great job Dawna.

Such a great transformation. It's worth waiting for just the right piece. Would love to share coffee (tea) with you.

What a perfect place! I love that you have a coffee station. Our coffee pot sits on our kitchen counter and I could use the extra space. I love that you laid the floors on a diagonal.
