There are a few things in life that can make me happier in an instant – my family, my cat, Disney, and coffee. My favorite is when all of those come together!
This weekend I decided that I needed a set area of my house that could be used for serving coffee, especially when my family comes over for dinner. Of course, I can’t do anything without a bit of Disney magic, so I set out to create a Disney Coffee Cart.
You can check out a video of my creation start to finish below!
If you’d like to put together your own Disney Coffee Cart, you’ll need to pull together a few things that you might already have lying around your kitchen:
- Coffee Cart – I got mine from IKEA for $29.99. It’s actually a utility cart that I had used as a bar cart in the past, but I was able to easily repurpose it.
- Coffee Maker – I have lots of coffee and tea makers and decided to put the following on my coffee cart – Keurig, pour over, french press, and teapot.
- Coffee/Tea – I bought a jar with lid from IKEA to keep my coffee nice and fresh and used a tea box that I found in my grandparents’ house to organize all my teas. If you’re looking for specialty Disney coffees, be sure to check out Joffrey’s Disney Coffee Collection. I’ve had the California Grill blend before and it was the perfect bit of Disney magic for the morning!
- Anything else! – To add that Disney flair to your coffee cart, grab some of you favorite Disney mugs, Disney art, or anything else that spruces it up a bit! I hung four Disney Starbucks “Been There” mugs from the second level of the cart, placed a tea cup and saucer next to the tea box, and placed my sugar next to my coffee with some cute spoons to finish it off. Oh, I also added a shelf above my cart, since I was working with an empty wall. On the shelf I put up my Pantone Percolator, “The Perfect Pair” Mickey and Minnie Mouse coffee art print, a faux succulent from Target’s Dollar Section, and a few more mugs.
Once you’ve pulled everything together, start playing around with the layout of your cart. I based my layout on ease – I knew that the top of the cart needed to have my Keurig, coffee, and sugar because I use those every day. On the next level I put my tea box. I drink a cup of tea every night and love that I can see all my different options for tea right away. On the bottom level I placed my pour over coffee pot, french press, and teapot.
