Ever since we changed our basement tv/entertainment center situation, I have been irritated with the 300 cords that I could see dangling behind the entertainment center. They were so distracting in my eyes... white walls, white entertainment center, big black cords. Yuck.
To remedy this situation, I bought materials to create a functional and cute backing to the entertainment center. This way, I wouldn't have to look at the over abundance of cordage, but if anything just notice the cute backing to the entertainment center.
Ugh, I forgot to take a before shot to illustrate the obnoxiousness that were the cords. Please imagine the less than attractive situation through.
And here is the much better looking after:
How did I do this super easy project? Easy!
First, I bought a bunch of scrapbook paper that I thought would look nice lining the back of the entertainment center. I also bought a few pieces of poster board so that the scrapbook paper could have a more sturdy backing.
This is the scrap paper that I chose. Pretty, right?
The finished result- fabulous!
The project was super cheap too-
Poster board- 4 pieces at 99 cents each
Scrap paper- 16 pieces at 89 cents each
Staple gun- already owned
Grand total- $23.24
