Organize Those Cords!

Need to corral your cords? Here is an easy and inexpensive DIY for a box to hide the mess.
This is the snakes nest of cords I have on my desk.
Take a simple wooden box and paint it to match your decor.
Attach a power strip on the inside of the box.
Flip the box over and hide all of your cords underneath! You can hide and charge them at the same time.

    Great idea! My hubby is a computer guru so in his office we have an industrial vibe and a huge clean line desk with so many computer gadgets it look as though he could launch a space shuttle! One day I took an empty computer tower added a surge protector inside and concealed his mass of cords in it! Not for everyone but it looks great
