Pie Safe to Coffee Bar

To continue my coffee bar transformation from yesterday’s post, today I’m talking about the inside.

Once we had begun working on the new color and fauxing John and I came up with the idea to make this piece into a coffee bar to hold our Keurig machine and liqueurs.  I thought that was a great idea but I didn’t want the bottom of the cabinet to get ruined, so we decided together to tile the bottom inside.  I think it turned out pretty well for our first tile job.

The drawer, as you can see, holds loose K-cups and it works out well for us and when company is here.  They get to see all the varieties we have and it is easy access.  Used K-cups just get tossed in the bowl (which I change out season to season)

I am even happier that I decided to age the cabinet heavily since we turned it into the coffee bar it just works and it looks like it really has been around a long-time.  When I think about it 20 some years is long.  I am very happy with the outcome of this project.  It turned out just as I envisioned.
