Keurig® K-Cup® Storage Drawer Makeover and New Keurig® K-Compact™ Single Serve Coffee Maker


This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Keurig®. All opinions and text are my own.

Our Keurig® coffee maker is used daily in the Hamby household. We’ve had our Keurig® coffee maker for 5 years and the truth is I’ve never shown it on my blog or social media because I was never proud of how my coffee space was set up. I always wanted a cute little coffee bar but I didn’t want anything that took up too much counter space and never knew how to achieve a cute coffee bar that also had little surface area.

I was excited when I saw the newest Keurig® was a Keurig® K-Compact™ Single Serve Coffee Maker that has a smaller profile! Available exclusively at Walmart, the Keurig® K-Compact™ coffee maker has the same functionality we love from Keurig®, but takes up less real estate…AND is only $59…SCORE! I started brainstorming some small coffee area ideas and I’m so thrilled to show you how it turned out!

So after getting the new Keurig® K-Compact™ Coffee Maker, the next problem to address was this eye sore of a storage drawer. There are tons of cute K-Cup® pod storage ideas out there but honestly I love the functionality of the drawer and that it also minimizes counter space.

So here it is, the before and after!


I love that I still keep the functionality but now I love how it looks!



Lumber – based on the size of your drawer

Wood Glue

Right Angle Brackets

Stain/Paint to suit your style


Here are the Steps:

Step 1: Cut the Lumber to fit around your K-Cup® pod drawer. It helped me to lay my drawer down on top of the large piece to help measure and determine how it would all fit together. It’s really just the top, two sides and the back piece (which could be optional). You can always have these pieces cut at the hardware store if you don’t have the tools necessary.

Step 2: Glue the pieces in place using wood glue and clamp to dry. You could secure with a nail gun but it isn’t necessary.


Step 3: Stain or paint to suit your style. I used dark walnut stain. You could stop here really but I did a couple other things to really spruce up this drawer.

Spray paint the drawer and two right angle brackets to match. I used Rustoleum Metallic Gold, which is a gold/brass spray paint.


Step 4: Attach the right angle brackets and place wooden shelf over your drawer!

I really love our new little coffee bar area! It is smaller and I really like that the water reservoir on the Keurig® K-Compact™ is on the back to save space. As far as the drawer makeover, it was such a simple DIY and I love that you can customize the finish of the drawer to suit your style and kitchen and still have the functionality!

And don’t forget to stock your new drawer with some great K-Cup® pods. We’re fans of The Original Donut Shop® Coffee (extra bold and so flavorful!) and the seasonal Green Mountain Coffee® Pumpkin Spice Coffee




Here are some details about our new Keurig® K-Compact™ Single Serve Coffee Maker:

  • Brews multiple cup sizes: (6, 8, 10 oz.)
  • Brews K-Cup® pods in under a minute
  • Space Saver: 12.5” High X 8.2” Wide X 13.2” Deep
  • Smart Start: this coffee maker heats then brews in one simple process


I hope you find this tutorial helpful in sprucing up those old K-Cup® pod drawers and a big thanks to Keurig® for sponsoring this blog post!

The Cutest Cottage Rental in Lieper’s Fort/Franklin TN!


At least twice a year there is a group of us that met on Instagram that get together and go shopping at the Nashville Flea Market. Some of us are from Alabama, Georgia and Tennessee and we just have the best time! It’s always hard to really visit when you’re shopping so this trip was more about enjoying the company with a little shopping and eating, of course! 😉

We stayed at the Storybook Cottage and it was THE CUTEST little place ever! It had so much character from painted floors, farmhouse touches and all things chippy and rustic, which we all love! And it really does look like it is straight out of a storybook!

Just take a look and see what I mean…



It’s the perfect mix of rustic and chippy!

I love this little breakfast area, especially that table!!

I loved how they used architectural pieces above the windows! That was one of my favorite details of the place! It’s such a great idea and adds so much character!


This screened in porch is so dreamy!! I could spend hours out here!

Isn’t it just the cutest little place?! I definitely recommend it! If you’re interested you can check it out and book it HERE.


This area is the perfect place for a little weekend getaway! We did some shopping in Lieper’s Fork and then heading to downtown Franklin and the Factory for some shopping and eating! We didn’t have tons of time to shop but it was such a great day!

Here are just one picture from our weekend getaway!

DIY Neutral and Natural Fall Centerpiece

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Hobby Lobby. The opinions and text are all mine.


I am so excited to be teaming up with Hobby Lobby for this sponsored DIY Fall Centerpiece. Fall is my favorite time of year and favorite holiday decor! I went with a simple, neutral and natural centerpiece that I know you will love!

I use mostly neutral colors with my fall decor; lots of whites, creams, greens, browns, etc. and love that this color scheme works well with my everyday decor. I also wanted to incorporate a lot of natural elements that add texture and the organic look and feel and can be used year round.



The Fall Collection at Hobby Lobby is awesome this year and made this centerpiece super easy! Don’t forget to use your 40% off coupon!


Step One: I started off with a clean table, no table runner or tablecloth. I clipped the limbs off all 4 of the eucalyptus branches and arranged them in a small oval like shape, facing out. This created a bed and frame for the centerpiece. 


Step Two: Then I started placing the pumpkins, starting with the largest pumpkin in the center and then placing the smaller pumpkins around it.

Fall-Tablescape-Step2Step Three: Then take your succulent picks and start filling in some of the gaps between the pumpkins.


Step Four: Then I cut the hydrangeas off my hydrangea bush and started filling in the gaps. You don’t want this to be too symmetrical so try to keep the fillers random. I even used some of the vine like elements off the bush to add to the natural look of it.



That’s all! You can move things around to suit your taste, add more succulents, different colored hydrangeas or tweak to suit your style! This only took about 15 minutes so it was quick and easy!



I also wanted to show you how well this works with placesettings once you want to get your table ready!
