This Clever Hack Uses Joanna Gaines' Magnolia Sink Caddy To Bring A Little Life Into The Kitchen

If you have ever wanted to make your kitchen a little more aesthetic but don't know where to start, look no further than the Magnolia Stoneware Kitchen Sink Caddy. Ideal for small kitchens or those who don't have much countertop space, this glazed stone caddy is part of the Joanna Gaines Hearth & Hand with Magnolia collection at Target and is designed to hold your kitchen sink essentials. However, this stylish caddy can also be used for another purpose. As discovered by @hiltoncarter on Instagram, this ingenious product is a great place to grow your own mini plant friend. 

Because this sink caddy has both a tray portion and a round container, it's perfect for both a plant and all your sink essentials. Not only can you still use part of it for its intended purpose, but because most sinks are in front of a window, you'll be giving your plant direct access to sunlight. Additionally, this hack will infuse your kitchen with cheerful energy even on rainy days. This is a great way to add some nature into your home even if you don't have much space to work with.

Introduce some greenery into your kitchen in the cutest way

All you need to do to complete this hack is buy a plant that's slim enough for the section that's meant to hold a scrubbing brush and make sure the houseplant fits properly. It needs to have enough room for the roots to spread out without feeling cramped. Over time, you may need to replace your plant and repot the original one so that it has more room. You could use the longer tray to display non-drainage plants in other tiny containers or to keep a water spray bottle and other plant essentials nearby. If you still want to use it for its intended purpose as a sink caddy, simply put the plant in the container and use the tray portion for dishwashing items.

The reason this caddy can be used as a planter is because it contains a handy drainage hole. Though this hole is meant for letting excess water out of the container that drips off of your brush or dish sponge, it's also a natural drainer for plants. You don't even have to stick to the sink for this trick — so long as you place it in an area with adequate sunlight like on a shelf or a windowsill, you can put your new planter caddy anywhere. We love how simple this hack is, and it's also super affordable, making it the perfect pick-me-up for your kitchen.
