What does a father do when his toddler daughter, apparently exercising her creative juices as a drummer, won't stop banging on his desktop computer keyboard? He comes up with a DIY project that costs only a few bucks, takes up only a few minutes of your time and has the added bonus of decluttering your desktop. A perfect project for those of you who are now using wall-mounted computer monitors as your only "television" but want to keep a clean looking media center. So what cheap and easily obtained product (or three, hint hint!) made this DIY possible? You know the drill...

Using three of those ultra-handy and removable sticky 3M wall hooks, daddy can now tuck his computer keyboard behind his monitor, leaving plenty of room on the real desktop and keeping his gadgets safe from the terrible twos.

While we think this could be made a little more chic (maybe using the metallic sticky hooks?), it's a great inspiration to cheaply DIY yourself to a clear desktop.
