Breadbox Turned Charging Station
I saw this great idea at Gabriel’s Good Tidings and since my bread box had somehow ended up in my daughters room, I knew I had one to spare and could make this cool project.
This is what I started with, my empty bread box. Hubby gouged drilled a hole in the back of it big enough for a three pronged power cord plug to fit through.
Here is said power cord…
and its new location inside my bread box.
I then assembled SOME of our assortment of items in our house that require charging. I used some hair elastics and…
cord clips to keep things a little more organized inside.
Make sure your electronics aren’t getting too warm in there, and that there is plenty of room for air circulation!
I had thought about painting the bread box a bright pretty color but was too lazy tired.
I cut it down to fit the frosted glass front and mod podged it on for some added color.
Ooh, ooh, I really like this!! And I have a bread box in storage right now! This would be perfect! Thank you!
Great way to hide all those storage cords!!
What a clever idea! I love it.
Love this…very clever!
That looks great except now i need some fresh baked bread..totally all your fault! lol
Wow that is really cool! I need something like this cords are everywhere in my room.
i love that you can’t tell that it’s hiding all the electronics!
I love this idea! I really need to make one of these.
What a clever storage idea! Love the pretty paper you used.
Margo, this is BRILLIANT! Now do I put a hole in the bread box my father in law made me or not??? Hmmmmm 😉
Such a good idea! I love how it looks! I need to keep an eye out for a bread box!
Ok that is very clever – great job, love it!
love this idea… new follower 🙂
This is a great idea. I love how your’s turned out with the pop of color from the paper.

LOVE it! What an ingenious idea! And I love the color you added to it too..
What a great idea! And it looks so pretty too!
I really LOVE IT! What an awesome idea! I am now a follower, please come by my site and check it out or follow back.
This is so clever. I hate having our electronics all over the counter. This is a nice way to conceal them. Nice job!
What a great idea! Now I need to start looking for a bread box… 🙂
Great idea! I need to copy this!
I think it’s very clever, that’s what I think! And it looks great! thanks for sharing.
I think this is fantastic! Really really!
this is such a great idea!!! I am totally pinning this 🙂 I love vintage breadboxes, and this would be so fun to do. Thanks for the great idea and sharing where you were inspired from.
that looks so much better than having all the wires and devices everywhere. great job!
This is such a great idea (I’ve pinned it)! I’ve been brainstorming on a charging station…but this is the one I’m going to make! Thanks for the inspiration…love your blog by the way!

How smart are you?! Great idea!
I just love this. Great work.
I love this idea! I hate the look of all our electronics and cords.
How incredibly clover!! I love the added color!! Would love for you to link up to our Uncommonly Yours link party! Bonnie 🙂
Love this!! What a perfect way to hide clutter.
What a great idea! I love it!
Margo- I featured this on my blog today! It was one of the top viewed links at Friday Frolic:) Feel free to grab a Featured button. Thanks so much for linking up!!

Thanks for linking to Take-A-Look Tuesday – you were featured today!
how cute AND clever!! well done. 🙂
I like this idea. I have always hated the various things charging on the counter!
I love the re-purposed bread box. My husband is always wanting to get a bread box. I’ve resisted because I’m not much for a ton of stuff sitting on the counter top. However, I will snag the next one I see. Thanks for the inspiration!
So cute and functional–perfect!
This is too cute! So clever! I would love it if you could share this cool transformation at my “LaThrifta’s Cheap Finds and Transformations party”, it would definitely fit right in an stand out too! Hope you have a great weekend!
LOVE this idea! I would love to hide all our cords in a cute little bread box. Thanks for linking up at DIY Thrifty Thursday! You’ve been featured! (again) 🙂 Hope to see you again this week.

Thank you for linking up last week in Mommy Solutions! Your post was my #5 most clicked link! You are being featured on my new link up for this week! Thank you for sharing! Crystal
This looks great! I love how you adapted it! Thanks for linking back to my blog, too! Great ideas on your site!

Fabulous! Love, Love, LOVE it!
If I come across an inexpensive breadbox at a yard sale or thrift store, I am totally doing this!
Thanks for sharing 🙂
Beautiful and functional too = a win/win.
🙂 Love it!!!
This is something I need to do rather than hiding the cords in a bin somewhere and then having them all out making a mess, only to hide them away in the bin the next day. They can stay in this box and no one (except us!) is the wiser!! Thanks for all your great ideas!!
This is my first visit to your site. I linked here from MPM but I haven’t gotten to your menu yet because I stopped to look at your charging station. Great idea!!!
Where can I get a bread box like this??
Is it weird that I’ve never seen a breadbox? I feel deprived. But now I need one so I can make this. Where oh where can I find a bread box?
I lucked out with a sale, hope you come across a good deal soon! 🙂
