DIY Bread Box Charging Station

Better Homes and Gardens

From carb-concealing to cord-concealing, the bread box can do it all. The same thing you use to hide edible odds and ends in the kitchen (are we the only ones who use it for more than bread?) can do wonders to hide cords and power strips in another spot in the house.

Keep your "power spot' in check with this DIY project: transform an old (or new!) bread box into a tuck-it-away power station for the whole family.

Better Homes and Gardens shows off this idea on their site, where just a few instructions is all you need to get started:

Just drill a hole in the back, insert a rubber grommet, and thread the power-strip cord through. Cut small slits in 1/4-inch medium-density fiberboard (MDF) to create a divider that conceals the power strip and chargers behind it.

The power strip stays concealed, and you can even pull the bread box cover down to hide the whole thing, if you like. It's a great solution, and it can be done on the cheap with a bread box you already own.

What do you think? Is this something you would try to tackle at home?
