DIY Charging Station. My kitchen needs some MAJOR organizational help.

DIY Charging Station

I spent a ton of time organizing the kitchen when we first moved in over a year ago, but haven’t really done much to it since. I’ve noticed that the drawers and counters are getting a little more clutter and it’s driving me wild! Some of the things adding some clutter to the counters are the chargers for our tablets and phones. Yes, I hate admitting it but with 2 phones and 3 tablets (iPad is for hubby’s work, I have a tablet, and we also have a family tablet – the only one with games) cords are all over the place and I can’t stand the mess it makes on the counters. :/ I had been wanting a little “Charging Station” to keep it organized and hadn’t been able to find any in my shopping excursions, so we decided to make one. We knew we could make it for cheap and pretty easily if we just sat down and mapped it out. Here is what you’ll need if you’d like to make one of these as well… – 1 – 2′ x 5 1⁄2” x1/4″ board – 1 – 3′ x 3 1⁄2” x 1/4″ board.

Loving... DIY with Dremel {project & giveaway} - Thingsdeeloves. Last week I shared my weathered photo frame project which I completed with our new Dremel Micro.

Loving... DIY with Dremel {project & giveaway} - Thingsdeeloves

Now it’s time for my second Mother’s Day-inspired project – and I have a Dremel Micro to give away to a lucky reader! When I heard about all the different functions that the Dremel Micro has to offer, I was most excited to give the engraving tool a try. It’s the perfect tool to make a personalised gift for your mom (or yourself!) What you’ll need: glass jarword template, printed to the desired sizewashi tape/prestick/cellotapedark cloth or paperDremel Micro with silicon carbide grinding tip Print out a design/word, and cut around the edges. Lie the jar on its side (I found it easiest to fold up a towel to lean the jar against). Remove the paper from inside the jar, and replace with a piece of dark paper or cloth.

DIY laptop stand or laptop lap tray I quite often find myself working in front of the TV to catch up on work, and also not to miss out of my few favourite TV programmes.

Carving Rocks with a Dremel. There is something very gratifying about carving into a rock.

Carving Rocks with a Dremel

This project was kind of therapeutic. I was thinking I’d carve some words into rocks and maybe start leaving them around Palm Desert to see if people find them…. I love large river rocks: All you really need for this project is a Dremel (I used the new cordless Dremel 8220), a few different attachments, a bowl of water and rocks: For softer rocks a silicon carbide grinding stone is all you need. I drew a sketch onto my rock first: Then, at a low speed, I slowly etched my design into the rock: (Note: Make sure to wear protective eye wear!) I carefully went over my design, etching a little deeper each time. The finished carving:
