No matter how many devices or cords you need to organize, one of these DIY charging station projects will be the perfect way to turn your mess into a pretty family charging station!
I’ll be honest, I can’t stand seeing cords. Like, any cords. They’re the worst! Which is why I’m so excited to share with you all of these creative ideas for making charging stations!
A charging station is one of the easiest ways to hide all the power cords you need for your array of electronic devices.
With today’s technology resulting in multiple devices per person, this need for organizing the charging process is definitely needed.
We built our DIY bread box charging station a few years ago, and love having the ability to hide our cords and keep them organized.
I hope this round up of 30 different charging station projects helps you find one that fits your needs and style!
