Quick Tip #14 – Use a Tray

Do you have ugly cords in your kitchen like I do?
One is for our cordless phone (we don’t have a land line) and the other is for our intercom.
I don’t know how to do anything electrical, so how do I hide the cords?

Do what any resourceful home blogger would do: put a tray in front of it.
You would never know the tray was hiding and outlet and wires unless you read my blog.
And I love how it looks.

I hope you had a wonderful weekend!

    I do this with an antique cutting board over one of the outlets in my kitchen. Works like a charm 🙂

    I use a wicker basket turned upside down. The sides cover the outlet, the cords (and surge strip) are inside and I poked the cord ends through the basket weave and just lay the gadget on top plugged in.
