I’ve been asked many times through my Instagram dm’s where our cord box is. We have a truly tiny mantel, as well as there’s no nook for a cable television box to be tucked right into (our last house had actually a built in rack to hide it underneath the television).
I knew I didn’t want cables hanging everywhere as well as even if I wished to put our wire box on the mantle, it would never ever have fit anyways. To keep points looking actually tidy and very little, I generated a little hack to hide our tv cable box.
I never ever intended for this to be a permanent solution, but when it wound up functioning outstanding, we just chose to keep it up. Okay, don’t laugh, since this is such an outrageous DIY however it’s likewise very simple for anyone to do! If you’re tired of having wire boxes remaining and cords dangling from your tv or resting on your mantle, I have the excellent service!
What you’ll need …
- An Ikea folder (or something similar).
- Velcro command strips.
I utilized what I had on hand, which was an Ikea folder. I had a bunch of these downstairs so I improvised with one. I originally wished to acquire a cable television box holder from Amazon, but they resembled $80! Which seemed insane, plus it would certainly have taken about a week approximately to get below. And I wanted the cords gone immediately, they had actually currently been driving me insane because we moved in to our new area. So I got hold of an Ikea folder, cut off the top part to make a square/rectangle shape and after that utilized some velcro command hooks and the wall surface behind our television.
Are you thinking ‘yet exactly how am I mosting likely to change channels currently’??
Turns out the signal just requires something to bounce off of in order for the pvr or wire box to receive it. So the brick wall isn’t the very best, a typical wall would certainly be much better, yet it works simply fine!
