Since using the cord channel worked so well in the bedroom I decided to buy another one from Home Depot to the tune of $4.49 to use in the basement. You see, the cable line was hanging down from the ceiling behind the tv in the basement:
Not so pretty. This time I used the entire 5’ length of a new cord channel to hide the ugly cable so I followed the same steps as before minus the step to cut the channel (1 – clean wall, 2 – insert cord, 3 – peel tape liner from back, 4 – press firmly against wall and 5 – paint)
I used my trusty level to ensure I hung the channel nice and straight…
Now you don’t stare at the ugly cable but rather you can check out my new lampshade for the lamp by brother gave me and I rewired. It was originally $15 at Target but I got it for $3.70 on clearance. Gotta love those Target deals!
