Video Game Controller holder

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.

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

I painted it black.

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 be 
able to hold 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!
