31 Days of Getting Organized (Using What You Have) – Day 26: Simple Phone Charging Box

31 days button 2013

Welcome  to Day 26 of 31 Days of Getting Organized by Using What You Have.

I don’t like my phones exposed while they’re charging. I know it’s not a big deal but since it’s so easy to hide them, I’m going to show you how I do it.

This size is only for one phone, but you can easily use a larger box for more phones. Start with a pretty box or just a plain box and cover it with wall paper or fabric of your choice. I love this textured box I bought at Staples. It was only $2-3 and I love the rich texture.

I used my Big Bite Crop-odile to punch a few holes to make one large hole in the back of the box. If you don’t have a heavy duty punch you can use a box cutter or awl to make a hole in the box. The placement of the hole depends on your phone. Only make the hole big enough for the charger cord to fit through snuggly so it doesn’t fall out the back. I love that my phone is hidden now. Doesn’t it look great on my nightstand?

    We don’t charge our phones in our bedroom… There’s a place for my husband to charge is near where he throws his keys, so he can find everything easily in the morning when he leaves for work. And then I have a place for mine next to the sofa. It’s never bothered me having them sit out when when they’re charging. I guess because there have been quite a few times I’ve had to answer my phone when it’s on the charger.

    But this would be a really good idea if it fit our lifestyle. It does look really nice on your nightstand, and I can imagine all kinds of ways you could dress up or dress down a box to suit any decor. Great idea!

    This would look so pretty on my nightstand! I also have a box! Like yours, in brown (it’s a Martha Stewart item–ha!) I love this idea, Leanne!
