If you’re an “Armchair Expert” podcast enthusiast and are excited about Kristen Bell and Monica Padman’s new podcast “Shattered Glass,” which will spotlight women breaking barriers, you, too, might have found yourself scrolling through Padman’s Instagram recently, smiling at moments of the two together.

And here’s a moment that’ll definitely put a grin on your face, a snapshot of Bell in her bathroom next to her homemade “coffee station.”

“I believe that to be a kids table she’s turned into a coffee station… in her bathroom,” Padman wrote in her caption.

But who can blame Bell? Who wouldn’t want cup of coffee ready to go immediately after their morning shower? (In fact, I’ve seriously considered putting a coffee maker next to my bed for an even more immediate caffeine jolt.)

Although it’s meant for kiddos, Bell’s petite table with mid-century-style, white-paint-dipped legs is the perfect size for this setup, no matter the room in the house. If you want to take a page out of Bell’s book and create a coffee or tea station, here are a few similar tables (for kids and adults) to get you started:

This kid’s play table from Lalo has a glossy white top and white feet, just like Bell’s.

The Neelan Round Accent Table from Target is perfect for a single-cup coffee maker and a cute mug or two.

And this larger 31.5-inch option from Wayfair has room enough for a full-fledged coffee bar suitable for a barista.

Next you’ll need your coffee maker of choice (it looks like Bell’s is the Keurig’s K-Cafe Single Serve Coffee Latte & Cappuccino Maker) and a few of your favorite mugs, and you’re all set. Happy caffeinating!
