Before the mini makeover:
One of the green boxes above was not being used and it dawned on me that I could use it to hide the cords.
First I had to make the opening larger. Not only to get the cords through, but also to provide more ventilation.
In went the router, modem and electric cords.
After, much better. I also added some trim to the two shelves above.
I'm linking up to the trash to treasure party at Reinvented and was posted on Ikea Hacker (I love that place, the store and the blog)
An update for you negative nessie's: This has been in place for over a year and it has not caught fire, over heated or fried my components. The vent in the back is large as well as the vent in the front, providing adequate cross ventilation.
