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.

I’ve got another disguise planned for the computer sitting next to the charger, and I hope to show that to you soon!
