Managing Cables and Wires

Dear Chicago House,

Not every project I undertake within your walls results in something fantastic and arty farty I have to photograph straight away.

However a DIY adventure last week, to get a handle on the mess of wires in my office, produced in a very satisfying result that deserved a mini photo shoot.

Here is the before, messy irrating wires and cables

Abracadabra with wonderful WireMold Cordmate (you can get it in Home Depot)

And we now have order.

WireMold Cordmate is very easy to use, it has a self adhesive back and a locking chamber to hold all of those pesky wires. It took me longer to clean all the dust bunnies under my desk than to install it.

Love from

One thought on “Managing Cables and Wires

  1. That's absolutely genius! I'll never forget when I first started dating my husband–his bachelor pad had speakers extending like wings from the living room wall, complete with trailing cords from floor to ceiling. It. Was. Awful. Oh how I wish I would have known about this back then.

    Thanks for sharing this tip!
