Introduction: 0,- Charging Station for Phones
You know the problem.
You have several devices in your household, and each one of them needs a different charger. So you have multiple chargers on multiples plugs laying around in your entire flat.
I desperately needed a solution for the chaos and found many ideas on the web. And this is my individual solution for coping with all the cables and plugs.
Step 1: A Box You Don´t Need Anymore
In my case i took a box, that i bought years ago at a local home depot but never really used.
So i had it laying around for ages and now finally i got use of it.
Step 2: Coloring and Notch for Cable
First i cut a little notch in the side to lay the powercord outside. Then i painted the whole box using waterbased color that was in my shelf for ever now.
I didnt need to cut anything else because the box already had handles to pull the Phone cables through.
Step 3: Painting on Top
Finally, when all the paint dryed, i added the icon on top of the box.
I tryed different techniques to apply the icon, but in the end, the best way was to use maskingtape.
I masked the outlines of the Batterysymbol with tape and then cut the inner parts with a sharp knife.
After that i just painted the cutout parts with a small brush and white paint.
Thats it. Now i have a very nice piece to put all my cables and chargers in. And it didnt cost me anything, just an hour of work including the time for the paint to dry.
We have a be nice policy.
Please be positive and constructive.
