Is there a way to hide ugly wires that are right there in plain sight? What do you do when there are really ugly electrical wires that are an eyesore on your freshly painted walls? Here is an easy solution on how to hide those unsightly wires and cords.
If you have been to My Hall Closet before you may remember that a few months ago my sons helped me with my Laundry Room Update. If this is your first time here, welcome to my world!
It is time to update the update. I will bet that I am not the only one who works hard to get a project completed and then just stop when it is ALMOST finished. And there are those unfinished touches that just scream at you, “Finish me!” My ugly electrical wires were screaming at me!!!
We had painted walls, cabinets, pulls, and hinges. The Faux Tile Floor even got a little pick-me-up.
What’s a girl to do? There’s a beautiful new paint job and then there are those hideous, very ugly wires.
Several trips to lumber yards and office supply stores offered no solutions. What they offered me were cord covers for the floor. Those just would not work at all. The ideas on Pinterest were not what I was really looking for, either. Actually, I wasn’t sure what I was looking for but I did know what I wasn’t looking for.
Then I got an email from Blue Key World asking if I would be interested in doing a product review of their Cable Clip Organizers.
When I followed the link to their Amazon listing I saw that they also had Cord Hider Sleeves.
So, after a few emails, we decided that I would also review the clips and the “sleeves”. This review is for the sleeves and I will review the clips in a few weeks. Those are pretty cool little gadgets, too.
Just so you know, I am not being paid to post this review.
I am having a giveaway for a package of Cable Management Sleeves. There are four in the package. Giveaway details are at the bottom of the post.
When the package arrived I was so excited. The sleeves were just what I had been looking for. They zipped on easily, covering the awful wires.
They were just the right size when I stacked one on top of the other. I knew this was my solution to hide the ugly wires in plain sight. These sleeves are also a great way to hide or conceal computer, TV, and lamp cords.
But, since the covers were so exposed I sure wished that they were not black. Being a creative sort of person, I thought, “These will be easy to customize if Blue Key World would approve.”
Using a basting stitch, I attached light gray fabric to the sleeve. Just a sample to see how it would look in place.
The light gray “customization” looked good in that space. So, I contacted Blue Key World one more time to see if I could include this simple change. The product itself was not altered. The zipper and the neoprene wrap were not altered at all. With their approval, I customized the remaining sleeves.
I wanted to safely attach the wires to the wall. There were several sizes and styles of straps designed especially for electrical wires and conduit but when I found this package of Plastic Straps and they were gray I almost did a happy dance right there in the aisle.
To attach the straps and secure the wires to the wall required a drill, a package of screws with plastic anchors since the wall is sheetrock, and an appropriate size bit for the anchors.
Again, I stacked one sleeve on top of the other. Then decided where I wanted to place the straps. All four sleeves were used for this project.
After marking the strap placement with a pencil, I used the drill and drilled the holes for the anchors.
These Cord Hider Sleeves were just exactly the solution I needed to hide those ugly wires in plain sight.
Don’t you think this looks so much better than those unsightly electrical wires just hanging there? And I am just one step closer to finishing my Laundry Room.
And I just happen to have an extra set of the Cord Hider Sleeves that I would like to giveaway. If you would like to have a chance to win this set of sleeves, LEAVE A COMMENT or send me an EMAIL. The winner will be randomly selected on Saturday, September 1st. To be eligible you must be 18 or over, a resident of the USA. Only one entry per household.
’til next time,
