A corner dedicated to lattes, cappuccinos, and americanos!

The Ordinary Lovely: Coffee corner pegboard

Two other potential titles for this post were, 'I can't get no sleep', and 'Reasons to buy yet another pegboard'. I'm kind of marrying them both together, throwing a touch of pretty in to the mix and wrapping them all up in red twine. If none of that makes any sense, I'm blaming it on the fact that my boys don't sleep, so I don't sleep, so we are one sleep-deprived, slightly crazed house, at the moment. Well, I say 'at the moment' but this has been going on since Christmas. Did I mention that I can't get no sleep? I seem to be suffering from permanent jet lag but without the bonus of a relaxing holiday. Yawn!

Not being able to count on sleep anymore, my bed and I are no longer BFFs. Instead, I have a new love. Coffee. And tea. Anything with caffeine in, really. Even full fat Coca Cola has made a reappearance on my shopping list after I vowed never to drink that sugary tar ever again. Needs must and my needs are great if I want to keep my eyes open post 10am. Think 10am is early? Not if you've been up since 5am! Every day. For four months.

Recently, I've been fantasising about a home coffee bar. A corner dedicated to lattes, cappuccinos, and americanos. So, of course, I've been pinning away. I'd love something along these lines but realistically, we don't have space for one unless I clear away all of my cooking utensils and never prepare a meal in my kitchen ever again. A dream but maybe one that's a little impractical.

However, we do have the wall space for another pegboard so I decided to play around with the one in the living room and see if I could achieve a similar look to the home coffee bars that I've been coveting on Pinterest. And, I think I quite like it. If you can picture this in a modern kitchen with a Nespresso machine and kettle sitting below it, does it work? It might not result in me getting anymore sleep but it sure is prettier than staring at the refection of my tired face in the window while I wait for the kettle to boil.
