Charge It!!!

I must tell you I love my new cell phone. It holds a charge like forever. The only problem is when I charge it I lose it. After making charging stands for every one but me at Christmas, I decided it was my turn-First I found a decent style wooden box at the thrift store, then I sanded it and painted it sage green, (wish I had taken a before pic).

I drilled a hole big enough for the charger plug to go through.

I plugged it in to a power strip that is easily turned off when not charging or running the lap top. A charging stand for my cell phone. Too easy and great. And it holds pencils and pens!

What a great idea! Re-using something for a very *tech-y* application. And the sage green gives the box a retro look. I’ll put one of these type boxes on my list of things to watch for at my local thrift shops. Thanks for the detailed photo and explanation!

I really like this idea! I don't lose my phone when I charge it -- I lose the charging cord! I think I NEED to make one of these.

4 Bushel- I see these letter organizers in the thrift stores all the time- good luck!

Jennifer- Me Too

Cass- LOL That's what I was trying to say- I don't lose the phone as much as track of the charger!
