Easy Under Cabinet Lighting and Hidden Cords

54K Views
We have a pretty big counter area and lots of cabinets. The lighting has always been difficult. We have thought about under cabinet lighting, but I thought the cords would drive me nuts! I like organized mess.
Then one night the solution came to me... white duct tape to hide the cords. Tape them to the white bottoms of cabinets.
ordered under cabinet lights from Amazon (a coupon blog I follow showed some on sale at a great price)...
