Decorating Help Needed!

26 May
My good friend Amanda @ Serenity Now is having a Decorating Dilemmas party. 
You\
It’s so much fun to go around and see what people are working on and give advice on their “decorating dilemmas”. I have a big decorating dilemma and it’s smack in the middle of my kitchen – the most used room in my house!
Will you help me?
I’ve tried so many things and nothing has worked so far.
This is the little desk in my kitchen. This is where I keep my phone charger and the big family calendar. Right above the desk are all kinds of plugs, outlets and this big honkin’ intercom system thing. It is an eyesore. 
Some of the things I have tried have been — putting a big metal tray in front of the system. The only problem with that? It slips off and anything in front of it gets smashed on the floor. I have lost a few cute bird/decorative objects this way.
The second thing I tried was mounting a shelf underneath the intercom system. I saw the cutest idea over at Pam’s Bibbity Bobbity Beautiful. She mounted a shelf over her desk area and it looked so nice! Ummm, not so nice over mine. One of the problems was the shelf wouldn’t stay in that bracket thing and was hanging at an angle, so anything on it slipped off. 
{this is Pam’s charging station}
The third thing I was thinking of was making some sort of screen, maybe out of cardboard and covered with cute fabric — maybe it would look like a bulletin board, but it would be easy enough to take away whenever I wanted to get into the plugs or the intercom.

So — that’s my dilemma. I would LOVE to hear your thoughts and ideas. And once I get it figured out — I will share the solution (if we can come up with one – lol).
Thanks for your help! 
Make sure to go over to Serenity Now and see all of the Decorating Dilemmas — and if you have one, go over and join up to get some great advice!
XOXO
