Today’s project came together more easily and wonderfully than I would have thought! I guess I deserve an easy project once in a while. 🙂
Now, I don’t want to get into too much detail about my electronic set up, but the following pictures should give you a general idea of the way I got my electronic cables coraled once and for all!
I started off with another Closetmaid product from Target:
As delivered, the unit was too high for me to comfortably view my monitor. Before I cut it down, I spent some time at Walmart this morning looking for bins that would fill the shelf horizontally and depth-wise, and which would then give me an idea of how much of the legs to cut off. I also cut the second shelf-length-wise to get a front panel for my new shelf.
The only cables that are now visible are the ones that I absolutely have to plug into my computer.
Behind the front panel are bins that hold my cables, with one of them being a charging station of sorts:
Now, the only cables running under the desks are the power bar cords.
I felt a little silly today sawing handles off beautiful storage totes then drilling holes in them, but they were the perfect-size containers for my project.
Next step in my office setup is to get an external monitor and then I think my workspace will be as near to perfect as possible!Share on Facebook
