Remote Caddy Upgrade

After we painted a new media center and added a chevron print frame to cover the holes we made in the wall, I began to notice that our remote caddy was in desperate need of an update.Old Remote Caddy

Here it is, dark, hidden and full of everything. . . except TV remotes! A wireless mouse, my extra set of glasses remotes to 3 fans, 2 of which we don’t own any more and various pens, key chains and some spare change.Remote Caddy - before

Where are the key chains you ask? On the couch, next to floppy pillows and the left over candy container from last night. Cool, right? Needless to say, something had to give.

Old RemotesAs per usual, I’m not big into trends. I tend to stray more on the side of classics that have stood the test of time but when I stumbled across the geometric tray at Hobby Lobby I couldn’t leave without it.

Isn’t she a beaut?

I also purged the occupants of the previous remote caddy and have committed to only keep these 2 remotes, the ones we actually use, in it.
