Gotta Love the Goodwill

Usually our Sundays consists of Netflix, pizza, and snuggles.  We changed it up a bit this Sunday and went to our nearest GoodWill store. I am glad we did because we found so many great things and had fun while shopping. 🙂

As soon as I walked in I saw these canisters. My first thought was they will match my kitchen! My kitchen is decorated in the “Pioneer Woman” theme and these flowers are almost a perfect match. This set was a total of $2.00. Awesome right?

I found the watering can for $2.00 as well and added some pretty flowers.

The pitcher and bowl for $1.75. I also added some pretty flowers and waalahh.

Last but not least we found this beauty and of course we had to have a little in the moment fun!! What makes me laugh the most about this picture is that I sent this picture to my mom and she replied back, “It looks like you Britt”. Lol!! I look nothing like her, but maybe I should reconsider her style because she sure has his attention. 🙂

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. 

  • 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. 
  • I then realized I was going to be needing a hole in the back for the coffee and expresso maker 🙂 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. 🙂 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. 🙂 The best part it it matches perfect with the rest of my kitchen!!! Best of luck with your own coffee bar 🙂
