My Charging Station

Okay, we all have "tech junk". I mean lots and lots of "tech junk". We don't need half of it really but we do own some much of it and it needs to be managed.

So once my husband painted our bookshelf (that he purchased from Borders bookstore before they closed, really neat!) I was able to use my sofa table that we had in our room as a charging station for all of my tech items.

Okay, here is my table. I have photos of my two grandmothers who are no longer with us. I miss them both terribly! I have a vintage glass holder. I found it at a thrift store last year and could not pass it up and I have this faux flower arrangement that I picked up at T.J. Maxx a few months ago. 

Here is my tech tray. It's a gold tray that I picked up at Marshal's two years ago. I have my Coach tablet case, 2 Amazon Kindles (first generation), 2 Samsung Tablets, Mp3 player, earplugs, and chargers. 

I also have my pens and my favorite candle right now. It is called Sunlit Garden from Bath and Body Works. 

Here is a view of the entire table. It love it because everything is there and I don't have to wonder where my chargers are or have them plugged up all over the house. I still love my candlestick holders that I picked up in North Carolina last year while visiting the Biltmore! Such a great trip!

I hope you enjoyed this post and perhaps it inspires you to create your very own charging station!

  1. Dear Mrs. Shockley,
    I love that you have photos of your grandmothers framed. I have my grandmother,s photo framed on a table, too. We should have grandmothers all our lives...they could teach us so much and loved us so unconditionally. I miss mine everyday, too.

    Warmly, Kathleen

    1. Indeed, Kathleen! I miss my grandmothers very much! I often wonder how things would be if they were still here.
