We didn’t have a TV in our bedroom until last April. Tommy gave it to me as an early birthday present because I was almost bedridden while I was pregnant with Gabriel because I felt so physically bad. We experimented with where to put it and ended up rearranging some furniture so we could put it up on the chest and out of Jack’s reach. The satellite box was a challenge because there was no way it was going to fit on top of the chest, too, so Tommy got creative. He took out the top drawer of the chest and we placed the Dish box in there. It works really well for us and looked alright except on the left side where junk would just pile up.
Tired of the junk, I went on a search for something to help organize this area. If we still lived in the DC area I definitely would have started at the Container Store but no such thing around these parts. So I went to my favorite store – Target – and found this tray.
I love the way this tray looks. It’s sophisticated and fun, and I knew it would look great in our bedroom. So it came home with me.
It works as a nice area to hold the Wii, remote controls, and a few other random things.
This project took me less than 5 minutes and makes a big difference in how that area looks. Just one reason why I love organizing – it makes a big impact!
