It’s amazing the number of little things we have in this house that need to be plugged in to charge. Technology may be amazing, but it’s also a pain! I am forever losing the cords when I unplug my phone etc. and the plug falls behind the table I use for charging. I picked up this little wooden tray at Hobby Lobby ($1.50!) and thought it would be perfect with a little modification and a bit of alteration (of course) to keep these things organized. I started with the same Rich Espresso metallic paint from DecoArt that I just love and use on everything and then added papers from Daisy D’s. I edged around the inside bottom with a dimensional writer from DecoArt too. I took some of the scalloped clips from Making Memories and painted those as well before attaching them (with E6000) to the corners to attach my cords to. Voila! A nice attractive place to plug in my phone, etc. where I won’t ever lose the cords!
The only problem is that I planned on also putting things like my son’s Gameboy there, but now he wants one of his own, lol! So much for color matching…yes, the Gameboy is in blue and my Bluetooth matches the darker red shade, etc., which is one of the reasons I picked this paper!
PS – Stop by tomorrow morning and I’ll post some details for a giveaway!
