      Can’t do that in an appartment….
      Maybe Miia will just buy a kinda tube and paint it….
      I agree it’s messy, but the whole look more nice than messy…

      Thanks for constructive feedback. :) I’ll do something for the wires soon.

    For the wires, I would gather them up and wrap them with a colored ribbon. I used red ribbon on mine – had about ten thick cables. Figured, they are there, there is no hiding them, so make them obvious in a good way. Now, it looks like a solid industrial looking cable.
