Video Game Controller holder

Today I'm sharing an 
organizer I made for
video game controllers.

I finally solved a problem that we've had at our house for years- 

I made a holder for video game controllers.

If you have teens, you have video games.

And if you have video games, then you have 
video game controllers all over the place.

I was constantly tripping over controllers, 
picking them up off the floor and 
trying to figure out where to store them when not in use.

The controllers were constantly in the way.


black wood, distressed



I found a scrap piece of wood in my garage.
It's a 1x6 cut down to about 18 inches.

I painted it black.


universal tool hooks


I found these universal tool hooks at the dollar store.

I drilled pilot holes in the wood then screwed the 
hooks into the wood, with the included screws.

I mounted the organizer to my sons dresser with command velcro*.

I had to bend the tool hooks out just a bit to 
fit the video game controllers.
But other than that, they fit perfectly!

The true test is that my sons are actually 
storing their controllers in the holder!

No more tripping over controllers.
No more piled up controllers all over the place. 

Woo hoo!

  7. i would take it one step further and use primer and enamel spray paint the bare metal hooks black so they kinda disappear when not being used. I'm on my way to the dollar store once they open and hope they have them in stock.

  8. The Online Casino Österreich board game has been around for almost one hundred years. This roulette video game is obviously much newer, but features Online Casino design elements which are truly charming, colorful and cheery https://online-casino-osterreich.at.
