I’m taking part in the Pinterest Challenge and sharing the mug station I put together in our dining room! I’ve seen a few of these on Pinterest and have been hoping to make one of these for quite a while now but didn’t think there was really a place for one since my kitchen isn’t very big. Then one day the lightbulb went off and this empty corner screamed “I’m the perfect place!” I had already purchased the shelf at Hobby Lobby months back in hopes of someday putting it to use for this purpose, so all I had to do was track down a little cabinet. Not wanting to spend a lot, I found this on Craigslist for $35 which was a lot cheaper than anything I was finding in stores! Plus, it was white, which I was hoping for to break up all the dark brown in the room. I filled it with mugs and some of my favorite items and used my ceramic fruit basket to hold some hot chocolate since I’m not a coffee drinker. The cabinet has an open shelf on top which gave me the perfect excuse to buy two baskets from the Nate Berkus line at Target that I had my eye on. Not only is this cute, but it’s totally practical since it cleared out 2 shelves in the kitchen! My mug collection was overflowing in there and now I actually have room to expand. Yay!
(Sorry for the Instagram photo! It was all I had for now and I wanted to share this today! I’ll try to update this post later with a better photo.)
