Moving the Digital Cable Box under the Desk




Remember when I begged someone to come and make this mess disappear?  Since then, the number of wires multiplied, a subwoofer showed up and decided to stay, and the rogers box continued to take up serious counter space.

I finally came up with a solution. Cable box UNDER the counter. I bought a shelf from ebay -  not bad for $12.99 + shipping. I may have installed the bracket upside-down on my first go, but I flipped it over and the rest is history!

Now all the electronic bits fit neatly on the tile ledge behind the slate countertop, and I am a happy camper!


ps. I can swing by your house if you want me to make it go away for you!! Call me, maybe!
pps. you have to point the remote low to change the channel...we can live with that!

    Now all you need to do is use the paintable wire strips (also come wider) from your screen to your counter (see smaller version with my TV: http://www.fishlynews.com/2012/03/tour-our-living-and-dining-room.html) and then you should get the cable box under the counter to collect all the pieces in a nice white container. http://www.bluelounge.com/products/cablebox/

  3. YAY for a TV in the kitchen. Have you considered using mouldings to create a conduit to hide the cables?
