Organizing the cables behind the TV that sits on the mantle. Earlier this year, our TV was a mess and my wife Danielle did not like how it looked. So one Saturday morning in May, I woke up and organized the cables behind the TV using zip ties, adhesive cable tie downs, and 3M double stick tape. In the end, our mantle looks much better. The Apple TV and Cable box both have an ethernet connection that runs to the network closet that's elsewhere in the house.
