Do you want to hide cords? I have an easy DIY way I hide those unsightly eye soars that is inexpensive and can be used in many places in your home.
Here is an example of unsightly cords dangling. We tolerate them, but wouldn’t you really like to hide them?
Materials Needed for this project
- Cable Clips
- Command Strip (optional)
Here are the instructions
Determine on the backside of your table where you want your item with the cord to go. For example this I place a lamp on this table and I needed to decide where I wanted the lamp to sit so I know where the first Command Cable Clip to go.
How Command Strips work: Both sides are like double-stick tape, and they have instructions on them. They say which side sticks to the hook, and which side sticks to the other surface. In my instance, I’ll be sticking the “other” side to the back of the table.

For this table, I used 2 of the cord clips at the top to lead the cable over to a leg. When you get to the leg you can continue using the cord clips to run the cable down the leg. In my case I had a switch that needed to be held in place on the leg. I used a regular Command Strip and placed it on the back of the switch, and on the other side I peeled off the backing and stuck it to the leg.
I turned the table around, plugged in the lamp, and slid the table against the wall. Look at how clean that looks! I was even able to move the table so that the plug was hidden behind the leg as well. Now it’s virtually invisible.
