I have wanted to set up a cute coffee area for quite some time now. Recently I was able to acquire this wonderful galvanized 3 tier stand and I knew it would be perfect for what I wanted to do.
I had a lot of fun finding things in the house that would give me the look I wanted as well as be functional for its purpose. I found this reproduction tobacco basket at Hobby Lobby (I have a love/hate relationship with them) but it was just the right backdrop for the vignette.
I love how it looks there now, and I have a place where I can put together my delicious drink every morning. :)
For the table, I always like to have fresh flowers. They make me happy and they cost less than $6 a week. For spring I filled this vintage bowl with some ceramic eggs I found at the thrift store and used shredded music sheet paper for the nesting grass.
This is my view while I stand and do dishes. (Yes, I do them by hand every day!)
They days are warming up now so I usually have the door open and can hear the birds singing and feel the fresh air.
I think I'll go have some coffee now!!
