Flickr Finds: Hiding Obsolete Telephone Jacks

These days more and more people are ditching their landlines for cell phones or Skype. You still need a phone line if you want to get DSL, but all those other telephone jacks installed all over your old school home are totally obsolete.

So what do you do if you're in a rental and can't uninstall and spackle those jacks? You do what Flickr member Danielle Anthony did and creatively hide them...

Danielle installed a cubby shelf in her kitchen and used children's wooden blocks to hide her old telephone jack (painted the same color as her wall for further camouflage).
