A Desk, and Computer Disguise...

I'm so thrilled with my 'new to me' desk.
It's large, has beautiful details,
~ D R A W E R S ~
(unlike the shabby chic table I was using previously)
and I love the warm wood tones.

Here it is with the computer monitor hiding behind one of my paintings,
and the tower hidden on the floor with the Eiffel Tower boxes.
The cords on my desk are covered with a black
ostrich feather boa.
I love the computer but don't want it to show!
(My monitor stands 18" tall and is 22" wide, that takes up a lot of desk space!)
Like me, do you detest the look of cords?
Do you try to hide the computer and all the 'stuff' that goes with it?
(I know with a laptop this is not an issue, but how can I give up this big screen?!?)
~ I'd love some more hiding ideas! ~
My large printer is currently hiding behind a full, tulle-skirted gown,
which has become a table skirt.
~ A bit of whimsy always helps ~
:  )

I am honored that I got to see a sneak preview! IT IS GORGEOUS and I TOO detest cords! That is why my writing space is hidden in a closet!!!! But I love your solutions of the boxes and the desk is simply TDF are having fun, aren't you? MY SPRING BREAK HAS BEGUN! I am going to take each moment SLOWLY!!!!! ENJOY THE DAY, Anita

Wonderful desk, and unfortunately all my 'stuff' is in plain sight :( I killed my laptop with a glass of water when I tripped and it went sloshing directly to the computer. But this is what I have, so may be trying some of your ideas!♥♫

I LOVE the new desk. What fun it will be work on it.

Alas, I wonder what to do with the 'modern' stuff we need to 'hide' myself.
