Today I am sharing our DIY coffee station and the best storage containers!

Are your kitchen cabinets a mess?

Like, everything falls out when you open the door?

That is exactly what happens when I open many of our kitchen cabinets. I don’t know how they get so disorganized but they do.

Today, I am sharing our DIY coffee station and our newly organized coffee cabinet at our old house. We did not have a lot of room in our kitchen (prior to the big kitchen renovation) so I dedicated a cabinet near the coffee pot as our coffee station.

How to make a coffee station in a kitchen cabinet

Here is the cabinet before.

First, remove everything from the cabinet and dispose of trash and items you haven’t used in months!

I found hot chocolate packages that expired 3 years ago!

I decided that K-cups needed to be in a container and that the boxes needed to be tossed.

I re-adjusted the existing shelving to allow for a free standing shelf (similar to mine but better! It has more levels) in the middle of the cabinet to hold the coffee mugs.

I didn’t have another matching shelf (which I needed to avoid that big gap of space in the cabinet) so I decided to try the pop up moveable shelf.

It worked like a charm!

I got rid of the coffee bags and added the grounds and beans into these gorgeous stainless steel canisters.

I LOVE these canisters!

They do not come with the labels but you can purchase any label at Michaels (that is where I got these chalkboard sticky labels) and make your own.

Doesn’t the coffee cabinet look so much better?

Baskets are perfect for storing tea bags, scoops and other miscellaneous items.

Many of our mugs were almost 15 years old, chipped and pretty gross.

I disposed of the old mugs, donated the others and added these new beautiful turquoise mugs.

It’s hard to believe that most of the same items are still in this cabinet but looking so much more organized.

You can find many of these items at Amazon and I have listed them below. 

The red coffee pot has been sold out for months but here is a similar one and updated for 2021. Placing your coffee maker in a tray helps give a layered look on your counter and keep things organized.

Turquoise mugs (similar) / bamboo bins / canisters / wicker basket (alternative) / scoop

This pod drawer is perfect for storing K-cups too. Fits nicely right under a keurig machine.

This is the newest Keurig that we just added to our kitchen and I love the latte maker! 

Look at how cool this drawer is, it holds so many pods!

Getting organized in kitchen can be very overwhelming.

I prefer to take one cabinet or drawer at a time. Most of us in our household like things neat and orderly so our DIY coffee station cabinet has been very well received!
