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

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

    The box doesn't get too hot does it?

    • Country Design Style-Jeanette

      @Bobbie B Actually there are 3 things I did to make sure the box doesn't get hot. First I asked the cable guy and he said the latest boxes do not get as hot as older boxes. But to be sure, the box doesn't have a back. Since it sits next to stone on

    Great job! Now the entire display looks flawless and beautiful all around. However, I am curious to know if the cable box can actually receive the signal from your remote control because the cover lid looks quite thick. Nevertheless, I still think it

      If the cable box sets back far enough in the wooden box, just add some trim to the inside of the door. Open or closed it would look fabulous!!
