Recently, in “Our House” we purchased a surround sound system for our living room. To properly install it we needed to mount the rear speakers on the rear wall, which meant wire management. Fortunately, my son and daughter-in-law were here to help me figure out how to magically ‘fish’ the wires in the space by the heat/cold air ductwork.
That got it to the bottom of the wall by the sofa, but this is what it looked like:
Not my favorite look.
So I went to Menards and was blown away with all the choices and selections of cord controls and cover up thingys.
I bought some paintable self stick covers for these speakers, and a wide screw in type for the multiple cords hanging behind the bottom of the tv too. Here I am painting them in the same color of the living room walls. Two coats.
After I measured a plumb line, (in other words, a straight vertical line) on the wall and put a few tiny pencil marks to line this up with it, I peeled off the back to reveal the sticky back.
I carefully stuck it to the wall, lining it up with those marks and pressed it firmly. Then slowly, I tucked the cord inside the cover, after I made sure that the ‘seam’ in the cover was facing away from the entrance of the room.
There they are all finished. They are still visible, but very neat and tidy and don’t bother me at all.
Sometimes you just can’t tuck the cords in the wall, like this wall, so to have the option of making those cords look nice and neat is a simple option.
I appreciate you stopping by.
