Your Cords Can Be Art Supplies

wall cord art Your Cords Can Be Art Supplies

I’m so ashamed of my cord situation right now. A gross old surge protector plugged into another gross old surge protector plugged into the wall with tons of cords come off each surge protector. I know I need to do something about this unsightly mess and this post shall be my inspiration. As usual, most of this stuff is way over the top but I think a more subtle approach could be taken to create some nice smooth lines of cords next to my floorboards.

(I can’t find the source for the first picture, can anyone tell me the name of the artist or where it came from?)

    I would worry about these overheating and melting/causing a fire. It’s cool and neat looking, but the smartest/safest thing to do would be get a shorter extension cord.
