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.

Time: 6 Hours Cost: $5.00 Difficulty: Easy

      @MarcioWilges Thank you for your sweet comments! Actually the door hangs open when the tv is on. If I was to redo it, I would have the pretty door flipped around so it looks pretty most of the time. Since the tv is usually on. :( I really am thinking
