Upcycling idea for a DIY charging station

This upcycling idea is incredibly practical and sustainable at the same time. We’ve all been there – the socket is up on the wall but there’s no table nearby, so your smartphone is left dangling mid-air by its own cable as it charges. This is exactly where our creative idea can come to the rescue – you can craft your own charging station from an empty drinks carton to place your mobile in while it’s charging. Our acrylic paint spray and our acrylic markers will ensure it is given a snazzy look. There are almost 40 brilliant shades of spray paint to choose from. We’ll show you how easy it is to make.
