You’ll need to drill a hole for the cord to go through. I only had a 1″ drill bit, which wasn’t quite big enough for the power bar plug to fit through so you’ll see I had to double-up on the holes.
Put your power bar in the drawer and determine where the cord will exit at the back.
Drill a hole (or in my case 2) in the back of the drawer AND in the back of the nightstand.
This is a side tip; if your drawers are stiff to slide, take a cheap candle and rub the wax on the tracks. (On the drawer bottom and on the track in the cabinet) Slide the drawer back and forth a few times and you’ll find it glides like Buttah!
Feed the power bar cord through the back of the drawer and again through the back of the nightstand/cabinet and plug into the wall.
Load up your iPhone, iPad etc and plug into the single power bar.
It doesn’t get any easier than this – “Hubby, when you go to bed, put your electronics in the drawer and plug them in – then close the drawer so Odie can’t get them.”
Sorry, sometimes I have to lob the ball slowly in order for him to catch it. lol
