Hiding the necessary!

Hello, this isn't tooooooo creative but it does work for me. I needed a desk near the printer in the hutch on the left in the picture. But I don't have one, so I took my sofa table and layed a longer board across it.

Underneath are files, alot of my music from church, and baskets with filing that needs to be done.
I bought this fabric and placed it over the sofa table. I usually change out the quilt above according to the seasons, and I can also change out the fabric to coordinate with the quilt if necessary.

The frame is a little 3$ frame from Target with a printed scripture inside. I added the checkered ribbon.
The cord from the printer was an eyesore so I hung a mirror to distract the eye...I also placed a few little things at the corner of the table because all the extension cords meet there.

My laptop just fits in the middle when I need to hook up to the printer...
Thank you for coming by...

Good job! It looks very nice and you hid things well! I'm always trying to hide those items that we need but I don't necessarily love seeing, too :)

Have a great day!

Oh boy we can all relate to al lthose cords huh? I keep a variety of extension cords on hand in different colors just for that reason. If the cord has to run along the brown baseboard, it gets a brown cord. If it needs to cross the wall, it gets an off white cord. I have been known to make holes in the back of furniture to put the cords through and even paint the cords to match! Modern conveniences fitting it with prim! LOL

Very cute and creative! I love the frame that you put the scripture in and the added ribbon is adorable! Great job!

Love your blog!

Wonderful creative solution. If you wanted you could drill a small hole at the back of the bookcase for the cord to go through and then it would fall down the back of the furniture. You may not want to drill into it though. Just a thought. I love what you did here!
