A buffet étagère is nothing new but it’s still very popular. It is available in different variations. The practical étagère allows space-saving storage space for fruit or cupcakes and is also a real eye-catcher. But on the other hand it’s mostly very expensive. Depending on the size, shape or color you have to invest part up to 120 euros. It is also easy to build the étagère on your own. This saves a lot of money. You may have all what you need at home for your DIY.
For a three-tiered étagère you need three plates, if possible a large, a medium and a small one as well as two glasses or cups. These work as pedestals.
Perhaps there is still old porcelain, which has no use anymore or you look in a vintage shop for plates and glasses, which you like.
