We were given this wine rack a while ago, and as soon as we put it together we knew exactly what it’s purpose was going to be. A tea & coffee bar! I really liked the idea going around of all those cute bar carts, but this is a little more practical for us since I’m pretty much addicted to tea and work from home.
Originally the shelf was just stained wood, so we took it out and spray painted it white and teal. We were going to paint the whole frame too, but I’ll be honest – we got lazy and just wanted to set it up to use ASAP. Maybe one day I’ll get motivated and paint it some other colour!
If you want to have your own tea & coffee bar, but don’t have a shelf, I would suggest going to IKEA and browsing through theirs. Here are a few that I think would work great if you have a smaller space or want to be able to move it around. Lots of choices!
