Cover Up Your Router
We keep our router in our living room, because that’s where we both have our laptops, and the signal reaches everywhere from that place. But the router is such an eyesore! When guests come over, all I can think of is that they're looking at this router. I searched on the internet and found a bunch of posts on how to turn an old broken book into a cover for the router. I thought this would be a good idea. I even checked with my computer savvy friend, who explained that as long as the back was open and the sides had space, the router will still work well. Once I found that out this project was a go.

Here’s my eyesore router.
Step 1: Gather Your Supplies
I used an old book (You can use a new one too, but I can't bring myself to rip up a book unless it's already going to the trash) and an exacto knife. Step 2: Remove the Pages
Carefully cut the pages at the spine away from the cover. Make sure to cut in the front and back.
I accidentally cut through the cover a little, but it still looked fine.
After you cut the pages from the cover, slowly pull it away.
Step 3: Tuck in the Router
I just stuffed the router and all the cords inside. There was plenty of room for it all.
Look how pretty my shelf looks now! No more ugly eyesore. If you don't like the cover (or the title of the book), you can decorate it however you like.
