With all the electronics in the house, we decided we could use a centrally located charging station to get them all charged at once. We kept losing power cords and devices, etc. We figured our office would be the best place to create a charging station.
Our office is right off the kitchen. It’s really supposed to be a formal dining room, but we figured we didn’t really need 2 dining rooms since we are currently using our breakfast room as a dining room. My husband’s parents had given us a record player shelving unit when we got married and we figured that would serve this purpose really well. It has a little pull out shelf.
I found the box at Hobby Lobby and had my husband drill some holes in it (I want to learn how to use his drill, but haven’t taken the initiative yet – one of these days. He’s tried to show me how to use it once before but I dazed in and out while he was talking and missed half the lesson. :-/ ).
The cords are held in place – or the reason they don’t slip out is due to binder clips.
Also, at Walmart, we found an extension cord that had 4 USB ports on it, so I taped that to the back of the shelving unit – this allows you to plug in 4 devices at once. This is a necessity since there is only 1 plug available behind the shelf.
What you will need:
Extension cord with 4 USB ports
Decorative box with separate compartments
Strong tape or I used those command picture hanging strips b/c then it’s removable
