Hi I need ideas for a small table or somthing that will hold all my controller cables and chargers, so that I can have them all in one organized place. So I can have a nice place to charge them when needed.

I have
PS3 controller charger dock
PS4 controller charger dock
Wii U controller charger dock
PS Vita Charger dock
3DS charger dock

Any suggestions?

Any set of shelves should work, plus a power strip mounted on the back of a shelf, but if you want to get fancy-

How about an Ikea Lack Rack


19" rack mount power strip, mounted facing rear

$20 on ebay, MA PDR915

Not sure how many shelves you would need.

Red face IKEA DVD Storage

This was a part of the BESTÅ BURS line. Sorry I'm not home to open it up. I did find a picture on the net of one open and filled with DVDs. Like most people, my number of DVDs has greatly decreased and thus it's mostly empty.

The unit is solid and has a door that opens down. The back of the unit, like most IKEA units, is cardboard. In the bottom one, I have a plug at that level and cut a rectangle in the backing the same as the plug. This gives me an electrical outlet in there.

The PS3/PS4 controller chargers and a media server are located inside. Also, extra remotes are in there and the video games for said PS3/PS4.

You could do this as just a mantle over top, but of course would need to get a plug at that height.
Similarly, since it is mostly hidden, you could run a wire up from the plug behind the TV into a mantle over the TV.
