Unique, Upcycled, Boho-chic Storage

I wrote this post a few years ago, back before we moved to the islands. I thought you might enjoy it, especially if you like creative storage ideas 🙂

Sometimes it’s the little things that make the difference.

Like using an unlikely object in a new way to store your television remotes.

When we restyled the livingroom (which isn’t finished…it’s never finished, right?) I needed a new spot to store our remotes.  So out came this little flower pot.

I found it on the side of the road a couple of years ago, along with about fifteen other terra cotta pots.  This one was different, though.  It was a happy yellow, and a unique shape.  It made me smile.

Don’t worry, I picked up ALL of the pots and took them home with me.  I’m resourceful if nothing else.

I decided it would be fun to add a layer of turquoise on top of the yellow.  I just used an acrylic paint and applied it with a paper towel.  I’m fancy like that.  Very fancy.

I like my “little” road side finds.  They make me happy and sometimes they have a very special purpose, like storing TV remotes 🙂

Have you found anything on the side of the road recently?

Aloha,
Gypsy
