If you’re pressed (haha, get it?) for space this small, but efficient bar by eastburnwoodworks.com is awesome. You can build it into your existing pantry or add it on the side. Discreet and ready to go when you need a morning jolt.
Industrial Strength Coffee
Elegant, chic, and super-simple to put together, this bar by livesimply.me makes a great place for the family to gather at every morning before going on there way.

Use pallets in alternating shades and combine it with metal accents and a cement top like studiograyhouse.com for an industrial style bar that you can use for coffee, tea, or any other beverage.
Book Coffee Worm
This clever design from Only Deco Love uses a bookshelf from Ikea to create a simple coffee bar that can hold all your essentials.
A coffee bar you can move where you need it? Yes, just use this DIY on Design Sponge and you can have a lightweight bar that can be pushed aside or put in another room when you need it.
Take an elegant hutch like the one seen on Little Brick House and transform it into a simple, yet elegant coffee station. The beauty here is there’s plenty of storage underneath and on top thanks to the mesh baskets.

If your coffee doesn’t wake you the bright color on this coffee bar by jaimescott will. I love how they used an old dresser and elevated it with this cheery hue, and the shelving on top makes it easy for you to grab and go.
Wheeling & Dealing
This DIY by abeautifulmess.com is one I actually built and let me tell you it works great; I take it from the kitchen to our yard during the summer and enjoy my coffee with the sunrise. Great for summer parties too- iced coffee anyone?
Type Drink it Up
Instead of throwing out that old desk use it to serve up some piping hot coffee or tea using this tutorial via www.bowerpowerblog.com. This style is perfect for a corner spot but really any desk in any nook will do.
Top it Off
Create a coffee bar by adding shelving to existing furniture like jenwoodhouse.com. The navy and brass is a sharp combination and works well over a dining room side table.
Coffe in Bed?
A cart like this one from theinspiredroom.net means you can have your coffee in bed; or better yet, go around with it to wake up everyone in the house and get them up and ready for school or work.
Swing & Swig
Charming and efficient, the swinging arm on top of this project by Inspired by Charm is the best part. You can keep your cups and sugar on it and it adds a fun, light touch to the piece.
Barn Door Bar
Adding a barn door to any piece of furniture instantly makes it better, just like you see here on Slattery Builders. This is a smart way to hide your supplies when you’re not using it.
Leave Your Mark
Leave a message for your spouse or kids using this clever DIY from klik.gr. You can write the roast of the day, make a lemonade section for the kids or whatever else comes to mind.
A Wrinkle in Time
You’ll feel like you’re being transported to another time when you put together this eclectic station from everevolvinglife4-5.blogspot.com. From the distressed wood to the tin backsplash this bar is full of character and is sure to be the center of attention.
Sleek and refined this station by jeab.com fits right into a modern home. Keep the piece neutral and add pops of color with your sugar or milk containers to tie it all together and keep it interesting.
From the wooden planks to the aqua colored mason jars this DIY that I found at ebay.com screams rustic and makes you want to get all cozy and share a cup of coffee with family and friends.
