This DIY charging station was built out of a necessity to find a spot for the three tablets constantly roaming our house from my wife and I’s three small roommates. I wanted it to be a fun woodworking project but mix in some cool technology. Enter the LEDs and arduino project. It was my first time working with arduino projects and current sensors and I didn’t get it exactly right. But I learned a few new things about electronics projects and this DIY charging table is going to be just what our family needs to organize the cell phones and tablets.

Garden antiques are all the rage these days, but like anything that’s in demand, prices have rocketed and yesterday’s scrap iron has become tomorrow’s object of desire. And the only difference between that old pig trough you found at the bottom of your garden and the trendy planter you see at your local antique shop is the application of some rust converter and a pot of paint.

Design Upgrade Areas

In terms of home improvements and DIY, never build a Taj Mahal. Building a Taj Mahal reduces the return substantially and may not add to the overall enhancement of the home. A Taj Mahal is obviously any home that has been “over” improved comparable to other homes in the same subdivision.
