An antique toolbox repurposed for a modern necessity: Charging devices. Drill a hole in the side of a toolbox large enough to feed an electrical plug through. Place a plug strip inside the box; feed the plug through the hole. Cut a board to fit inside the box and drill holes on the board (large enough so that one end of your charging cords can feed through them).
must, must, MUST have this! I hate my hair dryer sitting out, but it's so inconvenient to plug and unplug everyday!
Put a power strip in the top drawer of your nightstand to charge/organize/hide your electronics. Another "duh! Why didn't I think of that moment?!" for me.
I like this kind of thinking! 'Never again forget your cell phone. Add a charging station to your entryway and it will be right there to grab as you walk out the door. A unit such as this one can charge several devices at once and also keeps cords neatly tucked away.' Thanks Beautiful Homes and Gardens!
A drop-zone drawer features a charging station for cell phones and iPods and compartments for watches, sunglasses, and spare change. The charging station contains electronics and chargers in one safe and convenient space.
