One Shot Coffee

I thought this space, The One Shot Coffee Shop in Philly (found via a post on Apartment Therapy), was beautiful.


Reclaimed wood and tin tiles.

The menu changes daily.  So does the kraft paper roll.  I love this idea -- wonder where you could use it in a house?
The "card catalog" style drawers are for tea. 

Check out the entire post on AT, including closeups of the awesome tea drawer labels.

The kraft paper roll looks like a contractor paper roll of paper. They're like $10 at home improvement store. Bet it would make a great addition to an office for your daily to do list or brainstorming session.

Oh the brainstorming session thing is good because you could wind the ideas back up on to the roll of paper and pull them down again when you're out of inspiration

Our local newspaper sells end-of-roll rolls of newsprint for just $5. They are great for making sewing patterns. You can also attach one to a table in your rec room (or the classroom if you are a teacher), and let the kids roll out lengths of it to draw on. If you are having a big event, you can also roll out pieces to use as disposable table-covers. Way back when I was in Highschool, the teachers would hang the rolls up in the hallways so the kids could do their graffitti without damaging the walls. Also handy for gift-wrapping really big gifts! You can guess that I am seriously into recycling, eh?
