How to Hide the Cable Box

Our cabin was designed to have the TV on the mantel in the living room. {not designed by me} We've lived here 8 years and I'm working on embracing the idea of the TV on the mantel, but I will not embrace the cable box sitting next to it.

What to do?? Put it in a box. A decorative box. One I made just to fit. With scrap wood trims on the front.

Time: 6 Hours Cost: $5.00 Difficulty: Easy

  • Lol! my guy is not to happy about having to open the little magnetic door...but he will adjust. Just as he's adjusted to all the other design ideas I have.

    I hide wires with floral swags, planters. Boxes so thin they cover everything but the sensors
