Hidden Cables TV furniture


Materials: Old ikea tv furniture, Drill, screws, cables ties, main cables …

Description: I do like music and I bough some pieces of equipment (amplifier, CD player, multimedia player …). The back of my TV furniture was a “jungle” of dusty cables (power cables, ethernet, light cables, speakers …)

So I “simply” decided to …. screw all the Multi-socket mains extension UNDER the Ikea TV furniture. All the cables are maintained organised using cables ties.



At the end of “some days” of work the back of my TV furniture move from jungle to Desert (highest WAF compatibility). No dust, no mess.

I replace the wooden board and I painted in black. For a better air flow dissipation I make 10 cm holes using a core drill.
