Fabric Sailboat Storage Bins Are Cute Yet Functional

For me, clever containers make all the difference when it comes to staying organized. I’m much more likely to keep my stuff picked up when it’s stashed away in pretty wicker baskets with ribbon trim or colorful floral print fabric bins.

If you love attractive storage options, check out these cute fabric sailboat storage bins from Pottery Barn Kids. The cotton canvas bins are 15.5″ wide x 4.5″ deep x 13.5″ high. They feature decorative grommets that look like portholes, a canvas flag flying in the back, and a nautical striped interior.

The bin are priced at $39. They are an online exclusive item that is not available at retail store locations.

Although these fabric sailboat bins are advertised as changing table storage, I think they’d be cute for a variety of organizing projects. For example, you could use them for storing stuffed animals or small toys in a playroom. Wouldn’t it be cute to see a favorite teddy bear sailing on a trip around the world?

For older children, the bins could be used to store art supplies or necessary homework items like pencils, erasers, highlighters, and a calculator.

If your children have their own bathroom, the sailboats would also work well as storage for lotion, shampoo, toothpaste, and other personal hygiene items. They’d keep everything readily accessible without cluttering up a small space.

What do you think of these fabric sailboat storage bins?
