Technology plays a central role in my living room. Since ditching cable and satellite TV service my entertainment center has become home to several devices: cable modem, Time Capsule router, TiVo, Mac Mini and accompanying 2 terabyte external drive. While none of them are what I’d consider eyesores, other than the Mini I wouldn’t consider any of them aesthetically pleasing either.
The post gives a short tutorial on how to use an old hard cover book to hide a router (or similarly sized device), how to hide a router in decorative boxes, keep your printer out of sight but still functional, hide your ever-present TV cables, and fashion a media console from random things you may already have on hand. The photos perfectly illustrate their clever yet simple ideas. Check them out; even if you’re not the creative type I think it may inspire you- it’s a fantastic blog.
