Coffee Station

I’ve created a coffee station in my dining room.  I wish I had a before picture of the small dresser that I rescued from my mother in laws basement.  It was a mess!  It was chipped and covered in dirt.  I buffed out some of  the cracks and added chalk paint.  Chalk paint is amazing! You can paint any kind of wood and give pieces a complete face lift.  I had planned on changing the knobs, but once I cleaned up the originals, I decided I liked the white on white. I also pained the mirror.  It was silver so I went with the blue and distressed the edges.   The shelf was previously in the 1/2 bathroom I made over last month.  I decided to use it for the coffee station instead. That shelf was made by my brother when he was in high school.  I found it in the corner of my fathers basement probably 5 plus years ago. It was a little worn and coming apart.  The carved out heart just drew me to it.  I knew I’d be able to fix and transform it somehow.  My brother is a talented craftsman.  He can build anything.  When he was visiting with his family over the holidays, he couldn’t believe I rescued the shelf.  He said, “that was the first thing he’d ever built”.  Anyhow, I love how my coffee station turned out.  Otherwise, this was just a small corner of wasted space.  

Have you turned areas of your house into something fun and useful?  Have you transformed old items into fresh functional pieces?  Please share….
