Weekend DIY: Overnight Case Charging Station

Retro Staff Comments

If you’ve been hunting for that perfect match of vintage meets today’s tech, we just might have found it with this unique project. Via Design Sponge, SugarSCOUT’s Sara and Stacey share turning a train case into a fully-functional station for charging those gotta-have gadgets.

While this isn’t a “quickie” project, we think the end result is well worth the investment of time and materials. They used peg board, a power strips, cardboard, cork board, ribbon and a grommet to wow us with a totally repurposed piece of history.

That’s not all. The gals showcase more at their SugarSCOUT site. Be sure to take a look for more setups and ideas.

Plan to make this project? We’d love to see your before and after pics.
