Cheap solutions for wrapping up cords are everywhere (especially here, in 10 Cord Control Solutions for Under $10), but what do you do when your problem is less about "wrangling" and more about "concealing"? If you need an inexpensive way to hide baseboard cords, try this absolutely free tip.

Thanks to awkward apartment layouts and mercilessly-placed cable outlets, some of us renters are stuck running 20-foot-long cords along our walls. It's unpleasant to look at, to say the least.

However, we've discovered that there's a no-money makeover that could help you hide those wires from sight. Real Simple recommends propping up artwork to conceal cords and outlets.

Depending on how big of a fan you are of the wabi-sabi "leaned art" look, this is an awesome (and free!) way to conceal cord clutter. Just pull your prints, artwork and mirrors off the wall, letting them rest on the floor and lean on the wall to cover up your wires.

This could even work to hide a low-lying thermostat (make sure to leave some breathing room) or any other tech-forced blemish on your walls.
