3 Tier Galvanized Tray Beverage Station

Create a beverage station with a 3 tier galvanized tray!

If you have ever browsed Pottery Barn or looked at a Pottery Barn catalog, this 3 tier galvanized tray may look familiar. As much as I love Pottery Barn, I will not pay their prices. I will choose a knock-off Pottery Barn product over the real thing just on principle - even if the item was handed to me free of charge. 

I finally got my hands on a very affordable 3 tier galvanized tray from Sam's Club for only $24.99 but once I had it home, I had no idea what I was going to do with it. Then one day, after getting very annoyed by the overwhelming amount of K-cups and drink mixes cluttering and getting lost inside my cabinets, I realized the 3 tier galvanized tray would make a perfect beverage station. Not only is everything in one spot, it makes it very easy to offer guests something to drink. (And quite honestly, reminds me to offer them something to drink.)

I used bowls, cups, glass jars, and Starbucks chilled drink bottles to organize K-Cups, straws, and drink mix packets. I took mixes from larger containers like Kool-Aid, sugar, and chocolate milk mix and put them in glass mason jars.

Instead painting the lid of the mason jar with chalkboard paint, like you see so often now, I simply flipped it over and used a dry erase marker to write the name of what is inside the jar.

I can't wait until the holidays when I can deck it out with holiday drink mixes and maybe even some candy canes and pine branches! 

I purchased my 3 tier galvanized beverage tray at Sam's Club several months ago. I'm not sure they still carry it and it could have possibly been a seasonal item. However, if you are not a Sam's Club member and would like one, Amazon does carry it for $32.99 + shipping. The shipping part is definitely disappointing, but this is still better than paying $69.50 for the Pottery Barn version! 

Amazon shows the stand as a fruit and veggie tray, which looks great. But I think there are many other great uses for it! I used the tray to display my All American Cookie Burgers and Red, White, & Blue Dessert Cups!

There are so many different types of 3 tier trays out there and this galvanized one just happened to fit perfectly in with my farmhouse inspired kitchen. If the galvanized look isn't for you, I'm sure there is something out there that will match your decor!

What a great idea for the tiered trays. I have been on the lookout for an inexpensive one to hold different kinds of potatoes...but I think a beverage station is a better idea! Have a wonderful weekend, Rose.

Worth mentioning...when I saw this, I immediately thought "makeup organizer"! I wouldn't want it to be so rustic looking, but a can of spray paint could take care of that, right? Over from SITS link up
