Blueprint's DIY Charging Station Blueprint (Teehee)

Blueprint's DIY Charging Station Blueprint (Teehee)

When the legendary though short-lived Blueprint magazine folded, I mourned the loss of another favorite. Not only was Blueprint, a Martha Stewart title, the one magazine I felt that was really made for me, by people like me, but it recognized the three-dimensional female life.

Specifically, Blueprint knew that modern girls are gadget girls — in its inaugural issue, it won me over with this: DIY instructions for a charging station. An attractive, expensive (not DIY-looking at all, incidentally) charging station (perhaps you are familiar with my search).

So I present to you, the instructions for this fabulous charging station, now on Martha Stewart's website (Blueprint's site has gone MIA, but its awesome blog offshoot Bluelines remains).

A note about the suggested boxes for the project: The Container Store no longer has the specific Library Project cases on their website, but still has this striped version; I prefer the look of the solid-color library project cases, so perhaps these office storage boxes or these paper drawers can be adapted. Happy DIYing!

freegrace — I know! I read the Bluelines blog all the time and just wish they would update more. It's not the same.

Not only was Blueprint, a Martha Stewart title, the one magazine I felt that was really made for me, by people like me, but it recognized the three-dimensional female life. I felt this way about Blueprint too. I was SO disappointed. I think it was the only magazine I ever really felt was MADE for me. I've been reading the blog for a while, which the old editor tried to assure was going to carry on the spirit of the magazine... but it's barely ever updated! :-( So sad. I'm still holding out hope that Martha Stewart will bring the magazine itself back someday.

I love the ability to personalize it. A little spray glue and fabric or special papers would work wonders on the striped version since it is all set up for what is needed.

Thank you for this. I wasn't aware they had a blog. The magazine was my favorite mag to date and combined all that i loved about Lucky, Real Simple and Domino in one place.

seems a little involved for a DIY project. I wonder what the cost difference is if you bought one.
