How-to:
  1. Clean your wooden box by wiping it with a damp cloth mixed with a homemade vinegar mixture.
  2. After cleaning, determine the size of your drill bit and make sure that it fits the smallest part of your cord.
  3. Use a 1/2″ drill bit (recommended size) to make two holes in the back of the wooden box.
  4. After drilling the holes, use sandpaper to polish the rough edges of the holes.
  5. Paint your wooden box with your chosen color and let dry.
  6. Place it in your designated area. You may choose to add a couple of decor pieces in the area for a more stylish space.
