Nightstand Charging

Are you like me with wanting to charge your devices next to your bed so you can hear them if they go off at night or in the morning?

Well then you should incorporate a charging station into your nightstand!

If you have a nightstand with a pullout drawer on the top, cut a hole in the back of the drawer to allow a power strip cord.

Then you can plug in any devices you want to the power strip in your drawer while keeping them all tucked away safely.

No more having your phone or tablet on the floor or taking up room on top of your nightstand.

3. Box Charging Station

Don't want to start drilling holes in your nightstand but like the idea of creating a charging station?

Well then make one out of any box you have available.

You can even use a shoe box!

If you're using a shoe box, wrap the box first in decorative drawer or wrapping paper.

Then cut holes in the side and use a metal cardboard insert to give each hole a smoother look.

Insert a power strip, and you're good to go!

For extra organization, create a label above each hole to easily keep track of what cord goes to which device.
