It's funny how things work out sometimes. I've been on the hunt for the perfect rustic box to turn into a charging station. I've been looking for quite awhile now but I just couldn't find anything that would fit our needs. I wanted something that would not only charge our phones, ipods, etc..but also provide a bit of storage. So today, I'm rummaging around in my flea market stash and I see this old jewelry box. I suddenly had a light bulb moment! This could work!
I loved the wire doors and it had cute little feet too
So here it is before I started working on it
See all that storage inside those doors?
I gave it a good cleaning and then sprayed it with a can of Walmart brand spray paint. "Gray Primer" is what the color says on the back label. I believe it is actually paint though and not primer. Then I painted the handles with some white acrylic paint and gave it a good sanding to distress it a bit.
Now for the fun part...
I drilled through the back of the box right into the drawer on two of the drawers. Then I plugged the chargers into the wall, threaded the other ends through the two holes I just drilled and voila!
You have a charging drawer. One for each of us!
and plenty of storage too!
Pretty cool huh?
I'm lovin' it!
Then, remember this old basket I got? I filled it with flour sack towels and put it on top of the jewelry box to hide the outlet.
There you have it. A fabulous and decorative charging station that fits neatly, right under the kitchen cabinet!
Have a great week!
