I hit my first yard sale of the year, and I struck gold.
I have been wanting to create a coffee bar for a while now.
I have been inspired on Pinterest by the many beauti
I knew what I wanted, I just had to find it -
at Goodwill, or even better a yard sale.
I found exactly what I was looking for.
I found this beat up kitchen cart for $10.
I brought it home and sanded it down.
I used a hand sander using 3 grades of sandpaper.
Then I stained the whole thing using Minwax,
I didn't take photos of the whole process because
it was too messy and my hands had stain on them.
I already had this old crate (on the left),
and I sanded it down and stained it too.
Then Brian mounted it to the wall.
I filled the coffee bar with things I already had around the house.
I took this lantern from the family room.
These Pottery Barn dishes and chargers were a gift from my husband and children for Christmas this year.
The brown Transferware is from a beautiful set I found at a yard sale last summer for $20.
Everything with this little metal label is from Marshalls.
Most of it is borrowed from my daughter's collection.
I played around with different accessories until I found the look I was going for.
And this is the final result.
Let's go party!
