Out of sight, out of mind. If there's anything in your apartment–anything at all–that you'd rather not see everyday, here's a mind-blowing, life-changing, you'll-never-be-the-same-ever-again kind of tip: Cover it up.

In the grand scheme of things, a tattered and logo-ed label stuck to your fan isn't a major problem. But if it's messing with your chi (or just the vignettes you like to post to Instagram), you are hereby empowered to do something about it.

NYC resident Erin Boyle shared some photos on her blog, Reading My Tea Leaves, of that time she glued kraft paper over the flashy label on a fan to improve the dresser vista in her apartment. It's a simple fix–all that's needed is paper, glue and a circle to trace around–but more importantly, it's something that makes her feel just a little bit better about her space.

Erin encouraged her readers to share their own small solutions on Instagram with the hashtag #teenytinyfix. Check it out for other inspiring solutions.

Don't like something? It really is that easy, sometimes.

Do you have any cover-up tips and tales to share?
