Charging Station 4.1

I love trays and I love colorful bowls, so why not use those pieces to set up a charging station? We have a rule in our house that the kids phones and tablets must be left in a central area when they go to bed at night. The kitchen seemed like the logical place in our new home so we set up an area on the counter.

Charging Station.1

I use the tray to help control the cords and hold the tablet and the bowls hold the phones. I like how the bowls add color to that area of the counter too. I like using things I already have in new ways. Look around your home and see what you can use for a charging station.

I LOVE this idea. I’m always looking to add a little color to my kitchen – plus trays and bowls are just awesome to keep things from running a muck. Have you ever thought of drilling holes in the bowls or trays for the cords to fit through? I wonder how that would work.

The tray has handle holes that I slide the cords through. I think it would be fairly easy to drill through the bowls in the same way I drilled through glass bottles. It just takes a little time.

Cute!!! I also get addicted to pretty bowls – a great way to gather and store all those pesky electronics! I think I’d have to get bowls with side holes too – drilling a hole would probably scare me that I’d break the bowl!
