This is the third in my series on using terra cotta pots as storage. Today I’m focusing on organization in my small apartment bathroom.
I just organized what I use most in the pots on this galvanized tray.
Then I added a little bit of decor in the way of a candle, a sedum plant and sprigs of Lamb’s Ear in a jar.
But the focus was on getting my things organized so they’d be at hand when I needed them.
This small area looks less scattered and more cohesive by using the galvanized tray to organize the terra cotta pots in.
The galvanized tray just happens to be the exact right size for the side of my vanity. Anything else would have been too big.
You are limited to what you can do with your space in a small bathroom. Mine is too small a space to do much in the way of decorating.
But gathering things in the terra cotta pots keeps things from looking messy and disorderly.
The terra cotta pots absorb water, so if water gets splashed on them, it will simply dry out.
I highly suggest using terra cotta pots to organize areas of your home.
- First, they’re cheap.
- Second, they can be found in many different sizes.
- Third, if you break one just use the shards for drainage in the bottom of plant pots.
You could always paint the pots as well if you wanted a different look. Or decoupage them.
