Cord Control

IMG_9661

This is going to be one of the most riveting posts you will have ever read.  It is about how to hide electrical cords.  Yes.

Amy Volk over at Amyvolk.com showed us how to Organize Cords on her September 9th blog posting.  I’m going to piggy back on hers–make sure to read it–and add an aesthetic version.  Amy, my lovely friend who is very wise, makes my job easy.  I can’t make your house look good if it is a disorganized mess.  She will clear your chaotic piles and cure your where-are-my-car keys-woes.

She is your glue, and I am your glitter.  Yes.

Cords are ugly.  Functional but ugly.  Hide them.  Buy Command Cord Clips.  They come in small, medium, and large.  I bought the large on Amazon for the first project.

You are suppose to press the 3M removable tape for 30 seconds, then add the hooks and hold that onto the tape for 30 seconds. AND then wait an hour until you use it.  I didn’t wait.  So it took more time than it should have trying to “fix” it.  If you are using these for heavy cords like I was I would follow the directions.

This is the after.  The cord needs some time before it is ready to lay flat.

This is a much better after.  It is an average lamp cord and I used the small clips.  You can’t see it at all.

  1. I love this! My cord situation is out of control. I’m in some desperate need of glitter when it comes to power strips though. Suggestions?
