I purchased this vintage medical shelf at a local occasional sale.  I am a big fan of medical pieces and I think this one is perfect for my coffee bar, dont you?
Since Im a big fan of white, this small white Keurig was just what I needed!  It sits on top of a vintage yellow milk glass dental tray. 
I obviously needed something for water.  This metal thermos fit the bill.  
The K Cups sit in some vintage ironstone.
So do the creamers.  
And like most of my vintage items, the more imperfections, the more character.  
Its okay to add some new items to your displays.  The coffee cups and ironstone tray are newly purchased.  
This well loved ironstone pitcher holds vintage silver plated spoons.
And vintage books sit on the chair next to the coffee bar, just in case I feel like reading while enjoying my morning cup!
The oil painting that hangs above the bar is another example of a well worn and well loved piece.
I have to show off the vintage church door that I had installed when our home was built.  
Now Im all ready to get my day started with a little jolt of java!

After recently seeing a coffee bar in one of my friends bedrooms, and then seeing a recent post by Contributor Jasmin showcasing a coffee bar, I decided it would be a great idea to add one to my bedroom. And I think it was just what the doctor ordered!

CottageElements writes: Mary, I LOVE your idea of doing this in a guest room! I'm gonna be right on that one. Thanks for the input! I have a guest room, and though not used that often, a fridge and coffee bar would be perfect! Sue, you might have to make a visit again once I get it all set up! I'll make sure the fridge is stocked, too!

I am in the process of creating a newly added guest room to our home, and am attempting to come up with a "motel" feel to include a coffee bar with a snack table to be used for puzzles, games,etc for rainy days. I have a pink Philco refrigerator for the room and will have it stocked with special soft drinks and juices, and yogurt for grandkids to enjoy - no caffeine, of course, lol. I love your project idea! ~Mary~ Posted: 9:20 pm on February 6th

JunkArchitect writes: Wow! I'd set it up within reaching distance so I wouldn't have to get out of bed. Lots of great stuff as usual, Lani.
