DIY Coastal Beverage Stand

Thanks for Sharing!

This post is sponsored by The Home Depot.  See full disclosure below regarding DIH Workshop.*  This is one of my favorite builds yet… DIY Coastal Beverage Stand… it’s super functional, was an easy build… and it’s SUPER cute!  The weather is warming up which means spending more time outside.  This Beverage Stand is perfect for outdoor parties and get-togethers.

Here’s a cute video I put together with an overview of this project…


If you’ve been around my blog you know I love the beach and draw influence from Coastal colors and beachy details… so I put my spin on the Beverage Stand I created.  This Thursday at your local Home Depot you can signup to attend the DIH (Do It Herself) Workshop.  It’s free and it’s a great hands on demonstration where you can learn how to make your own Beverage Stand.

Let me share how I made mine…


  •  1 – 1⁄2˝ x 2´ x 4´ Sanded Plywood Board
  • 3 – 1˝ x 2˝x 8´ Common Board
  • 1 Box – 1 1⁄4˝ x 18 Gauge Brad Nails
  • 1 – Twine / String
  • 1 – Paint in White and  Teal Blue
  • 1 – 10 Quart Galvanized Pail


  • Circular Saw
  • 18-Gauge Cordless Brad Nailer
  • Drill
  • Drill Bits
  • Measuring Tape
  • Pencil
  • Safety Goggles
  • Sanding Block
  • Jigsaw

First step is cutting down your boards.  From your 1″x2″x8″ boards you need the following cuts:

  • Four 28 1/2″ pieces (legs)
  • Two 16″ pieces  (long frame)
  • Two 14 1/2″ pieces  (short frame)
  • Four 14 1/2″ pieces (shelf brace)

From your 1/2″ x 2′ x 4′ board you need the following cuts:

  • 16″ x 16″ (Top piece)
  • Two 14 1/2″ x 13″ (bottom and middle shelves)

Wood Cut for Beverage Stand

Once you’ve got your cuts it’s time to assemble.  You can paint or stain first or after assemble.  I wasn’t sure of my design yet – so I went for after.

Legs of Beverage Stand ready for shelves

First step is laying out your leg pieces and attaching your shelf brace pieces.  I used a nailer to quickly attach the pieces.

Next is putting on the top framing pieces.  Double check that everything is lined up so your table level.

Shelves added to Beverage Stand

Shelves go in next.  I did the bottom first and then the middle shelf.

Beverage Stand Ready for Sanding

Finish off by attaching the table top.  Once it’s all nailed in place you need to draw the circle for your bucket to sit in.  The bucket is about 12″ wide, so I went with a 10″ circle.  You can attach a nail to the center of your top and attach a piece of string to the nail and then at the 5″ mark of the string attach a pencil to draw.  If you have a plate or something else circular in the size you could use that as a template too.  Once you have your circle drawn use a large drill bit to create a starter hole so you can use your jigsaw to cut out the center hole.

Perfect for an outdoor partty - make this Beverage Stand Yourself!

I painted up my beverage stand with a combo of vibrant beachy blue and crisp white.

One of the nautical details I added was some eye hooks and rope to the top of the table.

I added some rope detail to the bottom of the beverage stand legs as well.  My trusty glue gun was used to add the rope to the legs.

  1. This is a great little beverage stand and I think I can build this myself! I think I’ll also make one with tile on the second shelf (waterproof under the pot/bucket) to use as a plant stand for Grandma’s 45 year-old philodendron plant. Thanks for sharing, even if I did find it a little late!

  2. I’ve been looking for tutorials on how to build a beverage stand to put in our backyard. This will go really well with the theme we have going on our back patio. Thanks for sharing this! 🙂
