Recycle a Cupboard Door Into a Charging Station
With all the mobile devices we have in the house we really needed to find a way to organized all those cables and keep our counter tidy and free of charging clutter. We needed a charging station.
Fortunately we had an old kitchen cupboard door lying around in the garage just begging to be turned into this. Add some chicken wire and two wire hangers and we had everything we needed to make our charging station.
The first thing we did was remove the hinges and make that kitchen cupboard pretty.
We gave the cupboard door a good wipe and made a reverse decal using an image from the Graphics Fairy and printed it on some DC fix. We cut the decal out and then slapped it on and sprayed the door using Rustoleum's Satin Heirloom White General Purpose spray paint. You can get the full tutorial on how we made our own decal here - it was really easy.
Once the door was all pretty we made a wire basket to hold all the devices using the chicken wire and two hangers. We attached the basket to the cupboard door and whoop, whoop the cords fit perfectly.
We re-purposed one of the hinges we had removed earlier and some twine to hang the charging station.
I would love to know what you think and if you want to see a full tutorial on how we made the basket for the station come say hi on the blog. We'd love to see you there :-)
