I love coffee. And tea. And red wine. Anything that will stain my teeth apparently.
My dentist hates me.
Enough about my chompers. I have the easiest little DIY for you today!
A few years ago, I accidentally won a Keurig on Ebay (my first and only foray into the world of online auctions). We use it every single day. It’s perfect for us, since we’re usually only 1 cuppers in the morning & we’re not wasting a whole bunch of coffee now. However, since it is a one cup machine, it does come with a few little accessories: mostly K-cups & loose coffee. We have a reusable cup (best $10 ever), so we’re not constantly going throwing away cups (and quite frankly, saving a ton of money in the process). Everything sits out on the counter, but I was sick of it all getting pushed around and jumbled, so when I found a few acrylic frames at Savers, I snatched them up so fast I may have scared the little old lady next to me.
But really. Big acrylic frames for $1? Move it, lady.
I used a 9×12 frame to hold everything, but noticed that there was a little bit of coffee grounds that always seemed to jump out of its container into the tray, so I realized that I needed a wipeable liner.
I had some laminating paper, so I used that and a white piece of art paper (which turned out to be 9×12) to line the bottom.
In order to jazz it up a little more, I used some gold washi tape to go around the edges, which also effectively sealed it against any water getting through the edges.
Once it was done, I popped it back in the tray, and replaced everything! Seriously, even though nothing has moved from this spot, it just looks so much better corralled together like this. Oh, and the tin and coffee holder are super old vintage scores that I absolutely love.
And I’m off to make more acrylic trays!
