Use your aprons to hide ugly old kitchen phone jacks #Decor & Decorating#decorating#great-ideas#kitchens#retro/vintage January 4 | Megan Finley meggyfin This photo might just look like Homie StellarP's adorable vintage apron collection, and it is! But it's also a super clever way of covering up an unsightly, and unused, phone jack in the kitchen. I bet y'all have all sorts of clever ideas for hiding those (now archaic?) kitchen phone jacks. My favorite solution is to find a vintage wall-mounted phone and, working or not, it looks pretty rad. What have YOU come up with? Join our community!

Now what?! Show/Hide comments [ 9 ] i just removed the jacks. completely from my house. not a single one is there. 3 agree Reply I do this! Although my apron collection verges on kitschy rather than vintage, including several I made in high school home ec. Then I got a really pretty metal hook mounted in that place. It really looks great in my kitchen! 1 agrees Reply I don't have a wall jack, but i do have a horrible metal fuse box. I use a magnet to hold a calendar over it (and, the fact that it is metal, means the magnet has something to stick to!) I just bought my first apron ever (i am over 40) this week though! Now it needs a hook. 🙂 Reply Yes! In my last apartment, I hung a gorgeous scarf over the space that had the fuse box so that I wouldn't have to look at it. I knew where it was, and even in the dark it wouldn't have been difficult to find if I blew a fuse (tiny apartment), so the aesthetic benefits were well worth it! Reply Since my fuse box is right by the door, I put strong magnets on it and use them to hold my keys. Also things like mail that needs to go out. Reply Hanging a calendar over it might work, though depending on the placement, might inhibit writing all over the squares like I do. Reply Since my apartment building's fire extinguisher is right outside my kitchen door – ten steps away – the ugly metal bracket for holding a kitchen fire extinguisher instead holds my aprons. Reply My ugly phone jack is covered by a black frame with a pair of Lefty scissors. Perfect size! Reply We covered ours with the can crusher…. Still not pretty but a functional and prominent recycling center. Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
