Modem Stand

Ever since I got a dsl modem for the house, it’s been jutting out of the wall on an ugly foldable stand that I got when I moved in the house, and I haven’t really known what to do with it.

I  thought about moving the modem, but this is the only phone line in the house, and it would have cost waay more than I cared to pay for to put in a new line. So one day, I happened to find this lovely table:

I put that in place of the ugly foldable stand and it looked much better.

However, it still wasn’t enough. It’s true that the table looked a lot better, but I still didn’t like having the modem in plain sight in the entrance between the dining table and the kitchen, so I grabbed this box from Walmart.

After opening it up and cutting out a hole in the back, I put the modem in the box and ran the cords through the hole.

And finally, once that was done, stuck the box beneath the surface of the table so it blended in nicely and kept the modem out of sight.

I've been wanting to do this for a while now and I'm glad it's finally taken care of. :)
