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!

An Organizer 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.



black wood, distressed



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