I’m cheap and I love finding ways to refresh our home without spending any money!
January was filled with decluttering, donating and trashing stuff. Some of my favorite things, like this cow, are really hard to part with. She’s been in storage and I’ve had her for a while. I was debating whether to donate or give her away but I love her so much, I designed a coffee bar area to justify keeping her!
For now, she’s a keeper.
Look around your home, grab a few of your favorite items, repurpose them. Fall in love with them all over again!
No Spend Decor – Farmhouse Coffee Station Idea:
This little spot in our kitchen/den area is like a decorating revolving door. At Christmas it was sporting a wooden horse (click here: to see the horse) I found at a junk store and today it’s sporting Bessie the cow. She underwent a little transformation, a facelift! She’s feeling very light and bright.
You can see this buffet makeover at our last house, one of it jobs was a coffee bar (at one time)
Steps to Refresh and Create a Farmhouse Coffee Bar (it all started with this cow)
- Remove everything from your space.
- Gather the necessities; coffee maker, cups, coffee pods.
- Shop the house for decor items, old window, metal stand or other container for your coffee pods.
- Refresh some of your house finds, with paint, like I did!
I guess you could say that I will do anything to keep my junk.
I painted Bessie with Maison Blanche La Bonne Terre. I applied to heavy coats of paint and that’s it! You could even use craft paint if you want.
I’ve been on a mission to lighten and brighten things up.

Love it and the price is definitely budget friendly. I sent you an email to say I live in Pensacola and I am going to Rich Text and wanted to see if we could meet for coffee. Happy New Year, Kippi
I love shopping my house, which usually means I’ve actually cleaned up an area and discovered lost goodies. The repainted cow head was a great call! I’m all about giving things a second life.
So pretty! Can you tell me where you got your curtains? I love them! 🙂
Thanks so much Kristen, I found the curtains at TJ Maxx 🙂
Debbie, what is the paint color on the wall?
Where did you get your towels? Been looking for ones like that for an eternity!
Hi Amy, the towel is from HomeGoods. Thanks!
What paint color is that?
Hi, looks amazing! Where did you get the clock?
Thanks Emily, I got it at Hobby Lobby 🙂
This is so totally my style – love it!
I LOVE this Debbie. <3 I'm a sucker for anything farmhouse OR coffee bar! 🙂
Debbie! I love your coffee bar AND Bessie. A couple of months ago when my husband was doing his run, he spied an old beat up dresser on someone’s curb. It was painted half purple and half pink. Later that day, he took the car and drove over to where he had seen the dresser. He put it in the car and brought it home. When I saw that “thing” in the garage, i was shocked! He took it apart, reinforced it, took a couple of the drawers and middle post out, where he removed the drawers, he placed storage baskets and left the others just for decorative purposes. It is a fabulous coffee bar, I love it! Oh, it’s no longer purple and pink either.
Judy that sounds awesome! You will have to email me a photo, I would love to see it!
Thanks Walter! I hope you’re having a great weekend!
Debbie, what a fun and pretty space! I love Bessie!! I’m so glad you didn’t donate her. Thanks for sharing. Make it Pretty is still live if you want to join in. http://thededicatedhouse.blogspot.com/2016/02/make-it-pretty-monday-week-167.html Have a happy weekend! Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse
