DIY Coffee Station - Home Staging Tidbit

Hello, it's Me-a-gen!


I am a coffee lover! Morning, lunch, after dinner, when it's cold out, when it's hot out, when it's raining, when it's snowing, when it's a beautiful sunny day...I can always think of a reason to enjoy a nice cup of joe. The first thing I think about when I wake in the morning is COFFEE. And I get quite grouchy if I have to wait for it.


I'm sure I'm not alone in this, in fact I KNOW I'm not. The Canadian Coffee Association (yes, there's actually an Association) says that in the province of Alberta alone, 63% of the population drink coffee on a daily basis (per a 2010 study). They also say that in-home coffee is the dominant place to enjoy our java consumption, with 51% of Canadians drinking coffee at home.


So, a designated in-home coffee bar would be a real "perk", don't you think? (pardon the pun).


This week's Home Staging Tidbit isn't just for looking good, it's a functional idea too: a DIY Coffee Station. A super easy project that anyone can use whether you're Staging your Home to Sell or Staging it to live.


You will notice I used a few ideas I've blogged about in previous posts, like Staging Your Home with Greenery and Replace Personal Photos with Cheap Art. Be sure to check out those posts too for more great ideas.


And now I'd love to hear from you. Do you have a coffee bar in your home? What items did you use? Submit your photo's and ideas - I'd love to hear them.
