Living in a travel trailer can be very challenging when it comes to space. In the corner of the "living room" we have a great little (ugly) corner cabinet that is meant for a television. Well, seeing as how we do not watch television I ended up using this empty corner as a catch-all. It was driving me crazy. I recently decided it would be a perfect Coffee Spot. Here is my redo!
This is what the cabinet looked like before I did anything. See what I mean by ugly? One thing I had a lot of that I had no where to display were snapshots of friends and family. I decided to make some fabric covered bulletin boards and put them on the wall in here.
These were the first two that I made. I love vintage feedsack fabric so that is what I used in different bright colors.
These were the other two I made. There was only room for the four of them.
Once I got them up, I could finally picture in my mind a little Coffee Spot! I attached all my photos of special people, set up my coffee pot, hung my Anthropologie cups that I think make coffee taste so amazing, my special cookbooks, my ceramic basket for tea bags, and a few other things and it was perfect. I love my little corner Coffee Spot!
One thing I've learned since living in a travel trailer is that we only have room for the things that warm our heart and make us happy. Anything that doesn't fit that bill gets put back in storage (or in the trunk of my car til I can get to our storage unit!). Having all my special colorful things around me has really made living in such tight quarters not so bad! (On a side note - the exterior walls are up on our house and we've begun on the interior. There is hope for a house in sight!)
If you are interested in making the fabric covered bulletin boards, I will post a tutorial here in the next few days. It is a very simple, cheap project with very cheerful results!
This week I am linking up with the following fabulous parties!
