My parents are building a new house and my mom wanted to incorporate her old coffee station in the breakfast nook. The coffee station is a smaller set up and she had a long wall that needed to be filled. I immediately thought of the coffee bar on Fixer Upper (I believe it's on season two) that had blue cabinets, chalkboard and long floating shelves. My parents loved the idea so we decided to go for it!
Here's a picture of the Fixer Upper coffee bar.
They installed custom wood cabinets, but my dad really liked the idea of having a pop of color, so we sanded and painted over them with Farmhouse Paint. I've never painted cabinets so I was a little nervous, but they turned out great! If you are local to Battle Ground, Washington, Posh + Tattered carries Farmhouse paint it in their shop. I've tried many paints and it's my favorite so far.
Sorry about the low quality pictures, I had just snapped them with my phone as we were going along.
My brother painted the chalkboard wall and Tyler built the floating shelves. Taylor at @_katherine_taylor_ wrote all the quotes with chalk markers and she does awesome work!
This was a big project to take on, but it is definitely the focal point in their new house. If you can imagine, there are windows lined along the side wall with a beautiful mountain view. I'm sure there will be delicious coffee and wonderful memories made for years to come!
As always, thanks for stopping by and see you next month.
