35 Acrylic Remote Caddy Stand

Hello and happy Monday friends!  Did you enjoy your weekend?  We started our built-ins this weekend so I will have some progress for you soon.  I appreciate you hanging in there in-between bigger updates.  With me not feeling well paired with working on some larger DIY's, posting has been a little more sparse.  Hopefully things get back to normal in the next week or two around here.

As our living room comes together, I have been starting to think about some of the smaller touches.  The living room will still house our television and components, so of course that also means we will have a few remote controls on our hands.  I have tried boxes and baskets for remotes, but they always end up lost, so this time I thought I would keep things "clear" for everyone.


We have remotes of different shapes and sizes, so I was on the hunt for something that could accommodate those needs.  Well, you know my love for acrylic.  The moment I spotted a desktop organizer and saw all of the compartments in various sizes, I knew it was just what we needed.

And it was!  Plus, knowing that it will live on a shelf near our television, I also wanted to be able to toss a few current magazines, a notepad and some reading glasses into the mix.  Easiest solution ever; acrylic desktop organizer = awesome remote control living room caddy organizer.


You can find acrylic organizers just about anywhere these days.  Amazon and HomeGoods are my "go to" spots, but Container Store and most office supply stores carry them as well.

All could have been left alone, but I spotted these little legs and couldn't wait to add them to the mix.  You know, just to take things up a decorative notch.


Hello spray paint season!  Oh, how I have missed you!!


Using my favorite gold spray paint, the legs instantly looked ultra glam.

A little clear E6000 glue later....


The glue cures pretty quickly and should provide an ultra strong hold.  The legs are pretty universal and should fit most corners without issue.  The possibilities are really endless, I have about three trays I am also eying up for this project.


Our TV shelves are not ready for me yet, but I couldn't help but toss a few items into the organizer to show how much it can hold and how versatile the storage can be.


Hopefully having all of the remotes in one easy to see and access place, will prevent us from losing them so frequently.  OK, who am I kidding, they grow legs in the night and walk off no matter what.  But at least they will look intentionally stored between uses!

  3. I am completely smitten with those little organizer feet...I feel like I might spend some highly unproductive time looking around my house for items to put them on...love the remote caddy. I need to add a side table in my office/guest room and this in definitely one of those ideas I can easily add in there.

  5. Isn't something how those remotes "walk" off. LOL Same thing happens in our house. Those darn gremlins... must be, right? :) Kids always say they didn't do it. Your caddy looks wonderful.

    Hope you are feeling better. Sure is gorgeous out today, isn't it?! :)

    1. Hi Irene,

      I purchased it on Amazon, however, you can often times find similar options at HomeGoods, Container Store and at many office supply stores.

  18. Oooo how I share your love of all things acrylic (except maybe acrylic nails that is). Brilliant, cute idea to keep an office accessory from looking like one. Yay!

  19. Like everyone here... I love the feet! Those make the organizer chic and upscale. Spray paint and E6000 can transform anything!

  23. Love that even your Playstation remote is gold lol. Also funny you said spray paint season is back. I said that a few months ago to a non-crafty friend and she looked at me like I had two heads. Ha!

  24. This is adorable! The feet are the perfect touch to take this from utilitarian to beautiful!

  25. Oh my gosh, that is so stylish and ingenious! Seriously, you could start a product line with that baby!

  26. I love this, too! Would love shopping details on your iPad case. It looks like a Kate Spade print but I'm not seeing it on the website. Can you point me in the right direction?

  27. This is way too cute! I love how you spray painted the little legs. I have got to make myself one of these.

  28. What an awesome idea! I've bandied about the idea of baskets for remote storage as well, but they're never sturdy enough for the taller remotes and there was never room for our game console remotes. Using an acrylic tray will solve both problems... plus those little legs - brilliant! Man, I don't know how you always seem to come up with such inspired touches! We can always count on you for handy and super stylish tips. Thanks for yet another!
