{ DIY Rustic Coffee Cabinet from an Old Jewelry Chest }

Hey lovely pals!!! I hope your Tuesday & week are going well. Ours has been busyyyyy, just the way we like it, well at least most of the time. So, this past weekend we went junkin & I also completed a little DIY that I wanted to share with you guys..So I have been sick for two weeks with stomach issues, & my other chronic stuff..One of the things that always makes me feel better is doing a fun little thrifty DIY or project. Lately I noticed I haven't been doing many of those, so when I spotted this cute little chest/cabinet in my gram's shed I knew I could make it super cute & functional for us!! Me, her & my sister had been in there looking for something the other night while it was beautiful out and of course my eye spotted this piece & my gram said take it- YAY!!! See what I mean when I say I come from a long line of pickers & diy'ers..I got it from my gram & mom for sure, oh & my late papa who was an artist! Anyways, I  knocked the feet off of the bottom & gave it some fresh white paint, and a clean & bam- sooooo cute!! Keep reading below for more information on this gem....

It was a yucky sticky yellow color..I gave it a nice wash inside & out with some warm water & then 2 coats of basic white acrylic paint. I made sure to only hit the areas that were distressed a bit so the old charm came through on the edges, knobs etc.. Speaking of the knobs..I just kept them & added a bit of black paint & then distressed them a bit. The black pulled from our kitchen cabinets & it added that much more charm to this little guy.

You guys know I'm not a coffee drinker but I do LOVE my vanilla spice chai tea haha. So, the reason I wanted to add this charming little cabinet is not only because I was craving a DIY but because the "tray coffee station" just wasn't working for us anymore..It was to cluttered, Mark hated the canister for the K-cups & I needed a change so this came just in time. I love the wood charm, clean but still cozy cottage look.

I kept the inside super simple with some of our favorite coffee cups, 3 mini canisters filled with sugar, cinnamon etc... The K-cups are now easy for Mr. Markie to access without having ours mixed up hahah..men.!!  

Side Note: You can see our last coffee station HERE

So what do you guys think about this new little thrifty coffee cabinet? Do you have a little hot beverage or coffee station in your home? 

Happy Tuesday!!
