Hi-tech Hide Aways!

All of us have them........... you know all those chargers and wires for our phones and gadgets that are lying around looking unsightly. I have found a pretty way to hide my cords and wanted to share my idea. :)

I had these vintage boxes on my vanity............

One day I was cleaning and picked up the Hershey Chocolate box and the bottom came loose. I was upset until I thought, how can I make this work to my advantage..........you know the old saying, "when you get lemons, make lemonade". :) I decided if the bottom was loose I might could put something inside that needed a cord. Then it hit me- chargers! Here's a pic of how I threaded the cords up from the bottom........




Here's the chargers inside the boxes............



And here's the box from the top after the cords have all been threaded through.......just plug up your phones etc and close the lid. :)


So much better than black cords all tangled and lying about don't ya think?! :)
Have a great day!

What a cute idea! My fiance has a little handheld computer that he plugs in and charges every night..it's quite an eyesore so I'll have to do something creative like this to hide it!
BTW, I saw the link for Tuesday in my followed blogs area but when I clicked on it I got an error page! I want to participate tho so I'll check here on Tuesday:)
