Video Game Controller holder

Y'all I don't know how many times I've walked into my boys' room and tripped over video game controllers.  Honestly, for how much those puppies cost one would think my 2 sons would take better care of them!

But alas, I have finally outsmarted my boys by making a Video Game Controller Organizer and I'm going to share how you can make one too!

If you have teens, you have video games.  It's kinda crazy how true and universal that statement is!

And if you have video games, then you have video game controllers all over the place.  To be fair, they are oddly shaped, so they are a little awkward to store.

Every time I entered by boys room, I was constantly walking around or over controllers that were left on the floor.  Of course I picked them up, like any good mom would do, but I knew we needed a better solution for storing them when they were not in use.

How to make a Video Game Controller Organizer

  • cut 1x6 piece of wood to 18 inches
  • paint wood according to your taste.  Black is a great color since the controllers are black too.

  • drill pilot holes into wood where the screw holes will be

  • Attach hooks with included screws, using the pilot holes you just made.

Mount the holder to any surface.  I attached the organizer in my son's room right to his dresser.

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!

This Video Game Controller Holder works perfectly to keep controllers off the floor!

  6. 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.
