HIDE WIRE CLUTTER, WITH ONE SIMPLE TOOL:

Plastic Shower Rod Cover

Yep, a shower rod cover, is all you need to hide wire clutter! They are absolutely fantastic, for hiding wires. (Never mind the drill, you’ll see what that is for in a minute). We’re just a few minutes away from cleaning up this mess!

I added the extra step of mounting my power bar, to the back of the cabinet (look for the keyhole on the back of yours, there’s a good chance you can mount it wherever you need to).

Give the plastic rod cover a light sanding, and then paint the same colour as your wall. Let it dry and you’re ready to go!

Measure the length of wire you need to hide, and cut your painted cover down to size. Then, easy-as-pie, slip it over all those pesky cords.

See? There they are hiding in there. And, because it expands, you can hide quite a lot.

The tension from the wires is enough to hold it in place, no securing needed.

Muuuuuuch better, am I right? A $5 fix, to a pretty ugly problem. Not too shabby, another reason why I LOVE the hardware store.

    Can you send a link to where you “found a shower curtain rod cover”?

    I looked on Amazon, Walmart, Target and other places and they just don’t seem to carry them any longer.

    Thanks in advance, I just moved and renting a place with a funky rusted shower rod, and need the cover for it. :((

      I know I have seen them at my local Walmart, however their site isn’t always the best for listing everything they have (in my experience). Hope that helps! Thanks!
