Tall, dark, and rich………..slow down, I’m talking about coffee! Without my morning coffee I transform into this grouchy old bear of a woman, so every morning I wake up and make myself some tasty coffee with a french press coffee maker. It’s perfect because it makes just one cup, and me and my roommate both drink a different coffee roast so the one-hit wonder french press is ideal for us. So I decided to beautify this one little area of my kitchen.
I wanted to add something a little more interesting to my coffee corner on the counter since it’s pretty much the first thing I look at in the morning. I mean besides my snooze button. Right now it’s looking a little bland and a little shabby.
So I bought some cheapo little canisters one for me and one for my housemate because I love a dark roast and she’s more of the breakfast blend type. We are for sure coffee drinkers though and we need it to function. I grabbed two from TJMaxx they were like $5.99 each so I couldn’t say no.
Then as I was taking off the price tag I noticed that on the bottom they say made in Italy, which may not impress any of you but I thought it was kinda cool. Now I can say “Oh Mitzy daaaarrrrrling, these are crafted out of Italian glass.” Like a boss.
I wanted to personalize them and since chalkboard paint is all the rage on pinterest and other design blogs I thought I’d ride that party train all the way to my morning coffee. So I grabbed a few supplies in the form of a paint brush and some chalk paint and painted two little rectangles on each. I didn’t trace it or use painters tape, I just got a little crazy and free-handed it. They turned out pretty, so now I have my name and my roommates name drawn on and we never forget whose coffee is who’s anymore.
Here a close up shot of the action for ya.
As you can probably tell I have horrible handwriting, but in my defense it’s not easy writing with chalk. What kind of roast are you? Or are you a tea drinker? I think it’s a nice little improvement and as a bonus it keeps our fresher than just leaving bags on the counter. Is anyone else as obsessed with the song Fun by We are Young? I’ve got it on massive repeat right now? What songs get you amped up?
