With the recent addition of more electronic devices to the household,
the recharge cables were starting to get a little out of control
I’d pinned this cord organizing idea and knew that it would end up being one of my school holiday diy projects. And with just a little time and a few bits and pieces, you can tame all of your recharge cables too!
What you need:
cardboard storage box (an old shoe box would work just as well)
book plates (the brass eyelets I had originally wanted to use proved too hard to find in our little town)
sharp pointy item to punch holes
What to do:
Measure and mark on your box where you want to place the book plates. I spaced them evenly using a ruler and then used the pencil to mark the inside area of the plates (to cut out later) and the holes where I would place the brads to keep the plates in place.
Once I’d cut the rectangles, I gave them a quick file to tidy up some of the raggedy edges and used my big needle to punch the holes needed for the brads.
At this point I also cut and punched a hole for the power board cord to poke out of the box. This one had me stumped for a little while, but seeing as it’s not that visible, I wasn’t too worried that it didn’t look pretty!
Then it was time for a coat of paint (the kids chose red!) and once dry, to attach the book plates.
