How to Turn a Shoebox into a Charging Station

by on Jul 6, 2009

A decorated shoebox turned into a portable electronic device cord keeper.

Practical, good-looking and cheap. A nice combination of adjectives if there ever was one, and they all apply to this cord keeping/charging station. It’s about as low tech as you can get for your high tech stuff. The best part about the project is we have most of what we need to make it already on hand.

Supplies include:

  • one clean, sturdy shoebox
  • leftover wallpaper or fabric
  • tape measure & marker
  • X-Acto 
  • spray adhesive
  • extra-large eyelet kit, which you can find at the hardware store
