How to hide electronics with a DIY box

We have more and more electronic devices in the house that need to be placed at specific locations to work well (ah, wireless networks!). These objects are not always very beautiful so, to avoid a couple’s argument, see how I modified a box to hide electronics.

Remember the burlap box I made recently?  I didn’t tell you but it now serves to hide several wires and electronic devices.

The inside of the box has remained in cardboard. It is set high enough (on the piano) that I did not really need to finish the inside. Hey! You have to prioritize when you’re a busy girl!!

The devices I wanted to hide inside are WiFi devices that are not that ugly, but they would not have been particularly beautiful on the top of the piano either!

Placing the Google WiFi and the Sonos Booster on top of the piano was a great place to help their reach, but I love them much better in the box! So my husband is happy, and me too!

And oh, do you see the orange things? They are Flexi ties. They are really great to avoid having intertwined cables.

One argument avoided thanks to this little box!

  2. Super cute idea!! I love the little crochet flowers you put on the front of the box! Who ever thought remote controls could look so pretty!!

    Thank you so much for sharing your fabulous project with us over at Waste Not Wednesday!

  3. Aren’t all those different cables the worst. I needed a sideboard for my front foyer so I went hunting for one with a hole in the back of the drawer for cables. The sales guy thought I was losing it, but it really is annoying. I love your little box idea. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thank you Leanna. People who built furniture should think more about that!
