DIY Self Serve Coffee Bar Storage and Organization Project

We did this DIY Coffee Bar Project a while back, so I thought I would share it with those of you who love your coffee as much as I do. We have since moved this into our bedroom and have set up a new coffee bar in the kitchen. I will be posting about that soon. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. I am loving all of your idea. Especially the one to organize jewelry. My house could definitely stand to be a little more organized.

  2. I need to reorganize the kid’s play area, but I’ll be moving in 2 months. In my brain I keep hearing, no.. just relax! Do it later! I think I’ll take this day and clean up more of what I need to and stop procrastinating!

  3. These are great tips! I especially like the one where you roll the clothes. Right now everything is in piles. So the kids wear what is clean, hopefully and on top (Kim)

  4. Thank you for featuring my post. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. These are all right up my alley! And I LOVE that coffee bar, WOW! I need that in my life! LOL

    • Dawn McAlexander says:

      It’s so easy, just grab you a piece of furniture with drawers and set it up. ๐Ÿ™‚ We have one in a bombe chest {shown} and also another in a kitchen island. Easy peasy. ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Amanda @ Erickson and Co says:

    I love the hair accessory drawers! These are great ideas. Thanks for sharing!

  7. I am a very organized person. I do a major clean and reorganization at least once a year if not more with every area in my house. I just like everything in place. I do need to organize my husband’s t-shirts so that they all can be seen. He drives me nuts with the way he goes through them and doesn’t put them back in place.

  8. I’m going to be rolling all of my kids’ clothes when I reorganize their drawers tomorrow. And I’m excited about it!

    • Dawn McAlexander says:

      Awesome! I hope it goes really well for you! I just love looking at things after they are nice and organized!

  9. that DIY coffee bar totally rocks. I also like the jewelry organizer. I must learn to make one of those.

  10. I love all these ideas. Keeping organized can be a challenge in most households. These ideas will definitely do that

  11. Goodness, I definitely need some of these idea’s for my shared bedroom/home! Thanks for sharing your ideas!

  12. We have a tea bar in our home…but I wish I had better jewelry storage. There’s always room for improvement!

  13. I have never tried it myself but I did hear once that rolled clothes take up less room in drawers also.

  14. I love the diy jewelry organizer. I was thinking of making something similar with place cards for my daughter’s wedding.

  15. These are all good ideas. I think that I start with good intentions and always end up with a mess anyways.

  16. Melissa S says:

    There are so many good ideas here, What a simple fix just rolling your tshirts would be. I love the frame jewelry organizer pretty and simple.

  17. I roll clothes when I pack but I never thought about that at home. I’ll try it!

  18. Sherry Compton says:

    Great ideas. I’ve heard about rolling clothes for packing but hadn’t thought about it for your drawers. With hair accessories, if you have a lot of scrunchies, you can use a paper towel roll as a holder. My daughter has done this then hooked her bear claw and butterfly clips won the top.

    • Dawn McAlexander says:

      Oh that is a great idea! I have a ton of scrunchies. Yes, I know they are out of style, but I love them so. ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. lisa jones says:

    WOW You Are Soooooo Organized Thank You So Much For The Great Tips I Definatly Will Be Using!

    • Dawn McAlexander says:

      Haha! I wish! This is a roundup from other bloggers – except for the coffee bar. I *wish* I was this organized, though. ๐Ÿ˜€

  20. Those are some great tips. I’m not big on organizing and I’m always jealous when I see people so organized. I love the ideas you’ve put forth and may try a few for myself. Thanks for sharing.
