the DIY: ROUTER IN DISGUISE

Now you see it...
NOW YOU DON'T.
That router has been a huge pain in the boot-ay with it's stubborn cords and ugly appearance. We finally decided to make this book cover up like we'd seen somewhere on the internet. It takes like 5 minutes and it looks much cleaner (and cute) when it's hidden.
Get an old hardback book.
Cut along the crease inside the cover with a knife of box cutter. Do this on both sides.
The book pages should come right out!
Use washi tape to decorate the spine of the pages and the cover. We thought it was cool to make both parts look like actual books.
Place your router inside the book cover and stack the pages on top!

  2. You could also buy a tin box and drill holes in the back! But this idea is great too. Nice one :-)
