Hubby and I have been together for nearly 22 years and in that time we’ve been through a lot, including having 3 children and owning 3 homes. As you can imagine we’ve also accumulated a whole lot of stuff.
Being the neat freak I
am was, if I were to see my home as it is now way back before I had children, OH MY would I lose my mind. I was totally OCD when it came to cleaning and organization but as time has went on I’ve had to learn to be a little more lenient with a lot of things including not flipping my lid when things are out of place.
I still keep my home clean but with all of this “stuff” that’s increasing as time goes on, it’s becoming harder and harder to keep from pulling my hair out. Seriously!
Thanks to Keter, a leading manufacturer and distributor of plastic home storage and organization products, I received a bit of relief when they sent me the Borneo Rattan-Style Storage Box for outdoor use.
The Borneo box offers 105 gallons of storage capacity so as you can imagine, you can fit a ton of stuff in this bad boy.
Seeing how lightweight the Borneo was, I was quite confident that I could tackle the task of assembling it all by myself— yes it was THAT easy!
With just a few large pieces, screws, hinges and washers, this project was completed in no time and all it took was a screwdriver to get it done.
First, I gathered my materials and my handy dandy screwdriver. Yes, it’s pink. LOL
Then, it was time to start putting the pieces together. Most of the plastic parts just fit together at their joints with a simple “click” of their connecting tabs. Then once the bottom half is done you connect the lid with two heavy duty hinges.
1.) Making the parts “click”. 2.) The bottom half is done.
3.) Attaching the hinges. 4.) Heavy duty hinge.
1.) Inside the Borneo box. 2.) Top latch for locking.
3.) Bottom latch for locking. 4.) Lockable latch.
I love that this box includes a latch so you can lock up your stuff for safekeeping! That’s a great feature.
For now we’re just storing a few hoses and gardening tools but once we get our new patio furniture it will be a great place to store the cushions when they’re not in use (since it’s sealed for dryness). During the colder months the Borneo will help prevent too much wear and tear from the elements.
Hubby enjoying his new seat! Ok, scoot over dude!!!
The Borneo also makes a great seat for two so if your patio or deck is lacking by way of chairs, you can easily sit two adults comfortably because the Borneo accommodates up to 400 pounds.
Did you notice how my hubby showed up AFTER the job was finished? LOL. That’s ok, it WAS easy. hehee!
You can purchase the 105 gallon Borneo Rattan-Style Deck Storage Box from retailers such as Sams Club, Lowes, and Home Depot. As well as online at Amazon.com for $115.00.
