DIY Phone Charging Station

diy free phone charging station

This DIY phone charging station is made out of a 27.3 oz water bottle, so it’s essentially free! All you need is a water bottle, scissors, marker and measuring tape or ruler. Measure approximately 3″ or more from bottom of bottle `(my phone is approximately 3″ x 5″, if yours is larger you should size accordingly and possibly use a larger bottle). At that measurement draw a half-circle around bottle. At the end of each side of that line draw a straight line approximately 4″ toward top of bottle, then join the lines together at the top. Cut along the marker lines. Next, using your plug as a guide, outline the plug in the center of the back towards the top (make sure your phone fits once you hang it on the plug). Finally paint your charging station as you like, or don’t, it’s entirely up to you!

Chicken Wire Hat Organizer How to, Easy DIY

DIY Chicken Wire Hat Organizer

The joys of chicken wire! This often overlooked raw material is much more versatile than just caging your hens in it. In fact, there is at least one museum in the United States entirely designated to the history of chicken wire. Our chicken wire hat organizer is also great for hanging jewelry and pretty much anything else you can think of. I suggest using a large old picture frame.

The example shown is 18 1/2″ x 22 1/2.” Obviously the larger the frame the more hats you can fit. Be sure to wear protective gloves when working with the chicken wire. Cut the wire to up to 1/2″ larger than the edge of inside the frame, secure it with nails on the back. I also used felt over the edges of wire and nail heads to protect the wall from scratches. I like to use old clothes pins to attach our trucker caps to the wire.

Utility Sink Rack

Reclaim some of the space over the utility sink in the laundry room. I have seen inserts for kitchen sinks, but couldn’t find anything for utility sinks. I discovered that an ordinary metal standing rack fit almost perfectly upside down in the sink; all I had to do was bend the legs back 180° so they wouldn’t stick up and could also grab the sides. The bending was done by hand. Wire shelving can also work with a little adjustment. The results have been great, this utility sink rack is very strong and easy to keep clean.

A Cupboard Door Gone Chalkboard

We love having a chalkboard in our kitchen. With little wall space to spare, we painted the inside of a kitchen cupboard door with chalkboard paint. We keep our weekly menu calendar posted there to keep us on track. We’ve used it to jot down reminders for items that we’ve discovered we’ll need to buy the next time we’re out and about. We’ve also used it to leave our phone numbers for the babysitter. My favorite use so far is for spontaneous love notes and thank you notes we leave for each other. We just have fun with this hack, and we hope you will too!

Magnetic Bobby Pin Holder

I get a little aggravated and impatient when I can’t find a bobby pin at that critical moment when you just need one. And more often than not, that seemed to be the case. I discovered that bobby pins and magnets go together like two peas in a pod. Once I made this accidental discovery, I decided to make something of it. I adhered a few inches of magnetic strip to the inside of a bathroom drawer. When I pull the pins out of my hair, they go straight to the magnet where they stay until I need them again. No more scrounging around for bobby pins with this simple bobby pin holder!
