    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
