One of my top decor pet peeves (and how to fix it!)






Hey there! I have a super quick and simple fix for you today! 
There are two things in home decor that annoy me BIG time. They are really small things actually. But they irk me (in our own home). 
One is cords showing -- I've mastered the art of hiding lamp cords as I've shown you a few times:
Ahhhh...so nice. :) 
The other annoyance" When I can't push furniture completely against the wall because of large plugs.  I don't love that the furniture has to sit far away from the wall, but it also bugs me because you can usually see behind the furniture (and see the cords I'm trying to hide) if it's pulled out. 
This post may contain affiliate links for your convenience. See my policies and disclosure page for more information.  
If I need to plug in a few items I'll typically use a flat plug extension cord. (Um...and have you seen this extension cord" It's like they read my MIND. That one is perfect if you have an outlet you can't hide behind furniture. Brilliant!)
Usually the culprit is a surge protector and their honkin' plugs that stick out a few inches. I recently discovered you can get flat plug surge protectors too. Those have stopped most of my twitching. :)
Years ago I shared this little recessed plug hack that helps a ton too -- 
BUT there's still one more problem that arises when it comes to getting furniture against the wall. I don't think I've ever shared this on the blog and I can't believe I haven't. I shared it on Instagram stories the other day and I got a huge response. Basically every single person responded with "mind blown." Ha!
So here you go. I needed this trick in my office when I was cleaning up everything after installing my big bulletin board. I've had this little printer stand for awhile, but it had been pushed away from the wall till a couple weeks ago: 
The problem was the cable outlet. Maybe you haven't noticed how far they stick out. If you're not cord/space cuckoo like me, you probably don't care:

But for those like me, this will be the best thing ever. Go to the hardware store and check out the cable accessories aisle to get this:

This little doodad, or right angle cable connector as it's really called, is the answer to your prayers.

It allows the cable cord to extend downward (or up!) so it takes up less space. Plus it's just better for your outlet and cables to not be scrunched up.

I always screw in the bottom part first, then attach it to the wall:

SEE how much better" It really does make a difference. Now I can push the cabinet right up against the base and quarter round. Brilliant. 
This is also super helpful in that tight space behind TVs. If you have the luxury of having your cable connection and outlets behind your TV, you may not need this. (We had most of ours installed high -- I'm annoyed I didn't do it here.) Depending on the TV, this is super helpful if you don't have much room behind it.
