I have been loving our coffee bar since we put it in this spring.
In July, I was planning Megan's 20th birthday dinner and decided to make a cupcake tree. I bought a bunch of cardboard birthday items from the Martha Stewart collection at JCPenney - and even though they were on clearance, I spent a fortune. Usually I add up my purchases so I am not surprised at the register. But this time I was so caught up in the excitement of finding so many cute items on clearance, I didn't really figure out the cost. So I left the store with that sick feeling in my stomach that I spent too much money.
The next day, I was at TJMaxx and I found this 3-tiered wooden stand in the gardening section. I loved it! And then the wheels started spinning. I could use this for the cupcakes, and then reuse it in my coffee station. I decided to return all the Martha Stewart items. (I love her, but not her prices).
A few days later, I was in TJMaxx again, when I spotted this item on CLEARANCE. I bought the clearance stand, and returned the original. Have you ever done that?
This is the coffee station (bar) currently.
