get charged AND organized {i call a do-over.}

Featured on Cell Phones. iPods. iPads. Batteries…..they all need to be charged.  We’ve come across some clever ideas that help wrangle those unruly cords but, to be honest, most of the options are just plain ugly.  Of course the idea of concealing the cords is just wicked good….but then wrap it all up in a great retro Samsonite train case.  Book it.

We’ve added a custom cut peg board to thread each cord through & to hide the power strip beneath.  An outlet was also included for the plug-in pieces that need charging.  On the inside of the lid, we fit a fabric covered tack board to hang notes & photos.  Finally the cord opening was finished off with a grommet.  Each train case comes with a key in the event you would like to lock it up.
Find this piece and 4 other color combinations in the shoppe!
