My hubby was given a coffee machine for his birthday, however, we didn’t have the space for it in our kitchen. In order to keep it on the kitchen bench I have needed to rearrange the small space we have near our electrical points. This is also where I used to charge our phones etc.
I needed to create a different solution for organising and storing all the power cords for our phones, iPads and Nintendo DS’s. Whilst I had seen recharge stations to purchase that I loved, I also loved the idea of creating my own.
I wanted to make something similar to an idea I had seen online, where they converted a bread bin into a recharge station.
A phone recharge station
I found this wooden breadbox in store at Howards Storage World
Together with my dad we drew rectangles large enough to fit the iPhone cable through, drilled holes on the corner of each rectangle, then chiseled through to create our holes.
I lined the inside by covering cardboard with fabric
I’ve put our new recharge station in a shelf that is easy to access. I have placed the power board next to the bread box so I can switch the power adapters off when not in use.
I love it, it’s tidy and works perfectly for us.
