Hide Your Electronics in This Pretty DIY Box
Stay tuned (ha ha, pun intended)! Our new family room with fireplace and built-ins is almost ready to show you. As part of the final touches, I wanted to find a way to hide some of the electronics that are a necessary but not-very-pretty part of a modern family room. I like this little box I created to hide our chargers!
I started with a used gift box that was the right size and turned it into this fabric-covered box.
Bottom of the box:
- I folded the front of the box flat, so that we can easily plug things in to the charger.
- In the back, I cut out notches where the wires would go in to the back of the charger.
- The cardboard was quite thin, so I added some reinforcement to the sides and back.
Top of the box:
- I cut large holes in the back for the cables to go into the back.
I wrapped the top and bottom in a single piece of fabric, so that it joins the pieces in the back, and the box is hinged.
I also punched a small hole and added a ribbon handle to the front of the box lid.
Here’s the box doing its job on our family room shelf:
I’ve got another disguise planned for the computer sitting next to the charger, and I hope to show that to you soon!
