Coffee Bar

Ease into the morning rush with a clever coffee bar.

Coffee Bar

Who needs room service when you can wake up to a fresh pot of French roast just steps from your own bed? This homeowner longed for a touch of the hotel luxury that she enjoys on business trips. She also wanted to start her days on a relaxed, yet upbeat, note. The solution: a coffee bar in her bedroom to put that first cup within pouring distance.


To build the coffee bar, a 26- by 65-inch piece of plywood was attached to one 24-inch and one 15-inch base cabinet using corner braces. To create open shelving on the left side of the bar, the cabinet door was removed, and a 20- by 22-inch shelf, cut from the same sheet of plywood, was attached with corner braces. A 24-inch space between the cabinets allows room for a small refrigerator.


"The aroma of fresh coffee is all it takes to lure me out from under the covers."


Good To Know
The countertop was made from 3/4-inch plywood. A Lowe's employee can cut the lumber for you.


High-gloss black and soft blue paint, plus sleek brushed-nickel cabinet pulls, give the coffee bar a streamlined, slightly retro look. The piece also would make a thoughtful addition to a guestroom or in-law suite.
