Four, or maybe five years ago, I had an area in my kitchen dedicated as a beverage center. Then, two and a half years ago we redid our kitchen, I bought a new coffee maker, and did away with the area. Lately, I have been missing the organized feeling the beverage center gave me, so this morning, I recreated a new area of the kitchen as the new and improved beverage center!
This little desk is where my husband "parked" his laptop. He never sat there, he just used it as a spot to deposit his laptop. He will now find his laptop neatly and safely placed on a shelf over his desk.
One nice thing is that I didn't have to purchase anything; I simply rummaged through shelves in the basement and found all sorts of jars and containers to display all sorts of beverages.
