The coffee station was made using a $79 white kitchen trolley with a $29 peg board mounted on the back that features three wooden shelves.

‘I joined the trolley and peg board together using some spare wood I had from previous projects, my power tools and everything my handy dad taught me,’ Candy wrote.

On the top shelf, Candy stored the coffee and hot chocolate toppings along with a $9 artificial plant for decoration. 

The middle shelf stored the ground coffee, sugar and chocolate powder, and the bottom shelf stored the coffee guide – which illustrated how to make 12 different hot drinks.

On top of the trolley itself, Candy placed the Breville coffee machine and additional coffee sachets in tall glass canisters.
