Total Game Changer!

If you follow along on my Instagram or this blog
then you know I love a good thrifting find
 - here and here  and here and lots of other posts, too.

I hit the jackpot (in my opinion) the other day!! 

I found 4, yes 4, of these in a new-to-me thrift shop!
They were sold as a set.

And what I hoped when I bought them,  worked out perfectly when I got home!!
(Cue angels singing!)

The TV remotes fit inside perfectly. 
All of them!

I stated on IG that I could sell them for a million bucks - 
Chinoiserie to hold your TV remotes and lots of readers agreed!! 
Even offering to buy the others!


and, AFTER:

I talked about finding this great thrifted coffee table here.
You will notice on the top left of the table 
that the remotes have rubbed off some of the finish while laying around on the table.
 No more! 
They are contained in style!!

And it goes well with our favorite blue and white.
Of course.

I used it in my first One Room Challenge Guest Room makeover 
and in my previous ORC, the Master Bathroom, as well.



And Banana palms look great with pink!! Win-win!

I'm definitely going to have at least one of these beauties
 (the live palm, not the $475.00 roll of Martinique wallpaper!)
 in my life this Summer.
 I wanted one last year and never did it!
In case you want one too:
 Here are some tips on how easy they are to care for.
