DIY Coffee bar made from an old hutch


This is the old hutch that my mom had given me years ago that has since been in storage as you can see. I decided that since I just moved into our new home that this would make a great addition in our kitchen as a coffee bar. I know thats probably hard to vision looking at this picture, but I saw potential. Just needed a little TLC and muscle and it was done.Β 

  • The first thing I did was move this into my garage and began to wipe clean
  • I then removed the cabinets with a screw driver and set the cabinets aside
  • I sanded the entire hutch by hand with a sanding paper from walmart and filled in the holes from the cabinet screws with wood filler. Once the wood filler dried I sanded those spots as well.
  • Now the fun part, painting! I panted the wood with a white and grey paint mixture from left over interior paint.
  • Once the bottom piece was dry I then began to sand random spots. I repeated steps with the top piece.
  • Next I wanted to add material to the back part of the wood that is not painted. I couldn’t find the perfect pattern material I wanted so I went with a tablecloth from WallMart. Sounds crazy but it worked. I measure the area and cut the cloth to fit perfectly. I used fabric clue to place it.Β 
  • I then realized I was going to be needing a hole in the back for the coffee and expresso maker πŸ™‚ Good thing my dad and the perfect hold drill bit. I made the hold on each bottom corner.


So there you have it. My new coffee bar. πŸ™‚ All I did was add my coffee maker and some decor and it was complete. Oh, and I replaced the light bulb that hangs in the top part of the hutch. πŸ™‚ The best part it it matches perfect with the rest of my kitchen!!! Best of luck with your own coffee bar πŸ™‚
