TV Stand/Dresser Switch Up

Instead of coming home to relax after a long day at work, I had the spontaneous urge to switch my dresser with my TV stand. And I went for it. Four hours later at 11 PM, I finished the switch and to my surprise, it turned out to be a brilliantly (crazy) idea.

Forgot how many cords it takes to hook up TV, TIvo box, internet, dvd player, etc.

I found out mid way through this undertaking that the back of the dresser has two  cut outs!! IKEA suggested wall mount (completely unnecessary) turned into hidden cords and equipment! Miracle!

Another wonderful discovery. After I hid all the cables and equipment in the drawer I thought I would need to buy a sensor to attach to tv to use remote. Nope! Free tivo app to the rescue. Remote on my phone controls everything. I love technology.

After my success with the dresser, I forgot about the disaster zone in my closet. Fortunately this only took me half an hour.

Obligatory before/after. Still can't believe I thought this was a good plan late on a Thursday night.
