Hidden Router

The world of WiFi has simplified the need for some wires, but in itself created a question of where to put the router, associated equipment and cords. We stumbled across an accidental spot in our small home that has worked well for keeping curious cats and toddlers out.

Hidden Router: Room View
Do you see the basket under the end table in the corner of our living room? We’d had it there for years, but for a different purpose.

Hidden Router: Closed Basket
Turns out this basket is just the right size for all of our equipment and cords:

Hidden Router: Inside Basket
It’s open woven design and top allow for plenty of ventilation but still blocks the view from our son and keeps the cats out. Perfectly hidden in plain sight.

Where do you keep your router?

    good idea. I hate cords... and have got to figure out what to do with some of mine.

      I hear ya. Seems like we gain more & more cords no matter what.

      Thanks, Mame! Was thinking of the Wish ladies a bit ago. I have a new project I'm working on today using some Sarah Jane fabric I bought there a while back. :)
