When you have a limited amount of space you learn little secrets over time to conserve space and stay organized. One rule that has worked really well for me is not to have duplicates of anything. Along that same line of thought is to find as many items that can do more than one job as possible and pick one only. My DIY etched glass coffee station canisters do exactly that.
…and yes, we still use the old fashioned drip coffee pot:)
These etched glass coffee station canisters are store and serve which saves me valuable space. Pretty enough to pull out for company like the New Years Day brunch we hosted, and durable enough to pop right back onto the pantry shelf until we need them again.
Let me show you an easy way to etch glass and make your own set of coffee station canisters. I use affiliate links to help you find the products I used:)
Etched Glass Coffee Station Canisters
I found my glass canisters at Walmart in 3 sizes (these would also work well too) and made the word stencils using my Silhouette Cameo. This was the first time I tried using cheapo contact type paper from the dollar store for stencil material. It works great and I loved the price. The only downside was that it was so thin it was hard to weed the voided part of the stencils out.
Wipe the surface with rubbing alcohol before attaching the adhesive stencil to clean and prep the surface for the etching creme. The stencil worked best when I bent just the bottom of the backing paper and started attaching the stencil at the bottom of the design.
Delicate sections were easy to adjust with little scissors.
Follow the directions on the etching creme. It’s easy! I couldn’t find a link to the brand I used, so here are a few brands that are economical too.
After 15 minutes, wash with soap and water and take off the stencil. That’s it, you’ll have a super cute set of etched glass coffee station canisters!
Our friends loved them.
Of course I love the store and serve functionality of these etched glass coffee station canisters.
Heck, I love anything that looks cute that saves space and keeps my supplies organized!

Hi Karin! Aren’t the quotes darling? I loved them too. We use our coffee station set everyday and they still make me smile. Especially on mornings like this one when Daylight Savings just started and it feels way too early to rise and shine! I’d be happy to send you the file. Look for it in your email inbox this morning. Keep in mind it’s a Silhouette cut file 🙂 Thanks so much for your visit and happy creating!
