Hiding TV Cords

Happy Thursday everybody!  I wanted to pop in real quick and share an idea with you on hiding all those TV cords in your living room.  I recently replaced a shelving unit in our living room.  The shelf before did a great job of hiding all the cords coming down from our TV above the fireplace to our cable box, etc. but this new shelf had them displayed quite unattractively!  So I got a little creative and came up with this solution!  I love it!  But here's a little disclaimer: my firefighting husband is not endorsing this idea-he is not as happy with this solution as I am, but until I find something else, this is going to have to work for us ;)

See that pretty little turquoise box on the bottom shelf?  That's my new favorite thing :)  That's where the magic is taking place!  

I found this cardboard photo box and just cut a little hole in the back.  I didn't make it too big because I didn't want the hole to be visible at all from the sides.  But it perfectly fits our power strip of cords!  Now, my husband is less than thrilled that this is a cardboard box, so I told him I would continue to search for something a little less flammable, but for $2.99 I think it's a great fix!!

Pop the lid on, and no one knows my little secret :)
