Coffee Bars are a classic DIY project, and are easily customized to match just about any style.
It’s Katie here and today I am showing you how to create a vintage glam coffee station. I love the vintage grey chevron trays combined with the chunky gold glitter, however you can mix it up with any color combination!
- 2 Rustic Chevron Trays
- 5″ Wooden Letters spelling out “COFFEE”
- Grey Vintage Effects Wash by DecoArt
- Black Acrylic Paint
- Copper Acrylic Paint
- 1″ Paint Brush
- #1 Paint Brush
- Decoupage Adhesive
- Sawtooth Picture Hangers
- Cup Hooks
- Start by brushing Vintage Effect Wash around the sides and front edges of your tray. Let it dry for 15 minutes and then use a rag or paper towel to remove any excess paint.
2. Use a small #1 paint brush to brush black acrylic paint down into the grooves of the chevrons.
3. Brush decoupage medium onto the wide strips of the chevrons and sprinkle chunky glitter on to it. Be generous with the amount of decoupage medium you use, so that the glitter sinks into it a little bit.
Once dry, Give the glitter a top coat of decoupage medium.
4. Paint the 5″ wooden letters. I chose to paint them a metallic copper (although it’s hard to get the shine in the photo) to match my cups.
5. Attach sawtooth picture hangers into the backs of your trays, and screw cup hooks into the fronts of the trays, about 1.5″ down from the top to hang your cups on.
You can style your coffee station by simply hanging cups on the hooks, or add on a wire basket to hold coffee beans or k-cups!
