Simplify and organize your phone and tablet charging with this genius electronics charging station for your home.
It’s easy to make with modern-day parts and DIY handyman techniques pretty much anyone can do.
A clean look with plenty of design options makes this an easy choice if you’re ready to make your life a little bit easier when it comes to your electronics.
Charging Station Project Background
If your dad or husband is a gadget guy, he would undoubtedly appreciate having one place to charge all his techie toys.
Kris from Driven By Décor created a family charging station to get her crew’s electronics under control and end the hunt for missing cords and adapters.
Kris made this so easily using a desktop organizer. I actually love this design more than charging stations I’ve seen at retail stores because the compartments keep the wires completely hidden and devices neatly organized.
What You Need
- USB wall port
- Charging station
- Felt pads
What makes this project extra special is how Kris used a couple of tricks to give this whole setup a clean and tidy look.
For starters, the USB 4-Port wall charger allows for multiple devices to be plugged in at once. And, there’s no need to for bulky adapters you have to plug in.
On the bottom of the organizer itself, Kris lifted it up with some felt foot pads.
This allows cords to go from the interior of the organizer, out the bottom and to the wall charger. No unsightly cords strewing around!
This reminds me of the retired Bedford Charging Station from Pottery Barn.
Find the tutorial at Driven By Décor. Kris does a great job of really explaining the reason she did this for her family.
It solved a big “dilemma” for them and helped support a healthy routine of keeping devices in one place, no lost cords and always charged and ready to go when needed!
