Materials: PAX Wardrobe, power strip, rotary saw, drill, curtain grommets, hot glue
Description: We spent an entire weekend putting together the Pax wardrobe… it took a Saturday evening until 3am and the majority of a Sunday to complete. It was a pretty major undertaking, but the part I want to tell you about is how we modified it to accommodate an electrical outlet and gave me the ability to charge my phone and iPad.
We used a rotary saw to cut away the cabinet around the outlet that was behind the wardrobe.
Next we cut a hole in the side between to two cabinets of the wardrobe and hot glued a curtain grommet to each side of the rough cut hole.
Then all we had to do was mount a power strip on the inside of the wardrobe and plug all my chargers in.
