Untagling a wire-y mess

This is my couch and my problem:

Couch_before_copy OK, not the multiple fabrics… that’s a long term project I’ve been working on. The wires. DRIVES ME NUTS! But the reality is that the laptops and the power bar have to stay, and ideally, we’d like to have the external drive around for backing up pictures and keepign large files (like movies and tv shows).

So how to deal with it, especially with 2 little kiddos proned to unplugging or tripping on the wires….

Well, I went to the home depot and had them cut a piece of mdf for me (6$ for the cuts, 19$ for the mdf)

I need to paint it to make it look really sharp, but man, I’m pretty proud of myself on this one!
