Hide It - now that's clever!

Ok, one of my pet peeves is when a builder installs the most unattractive elements in full view, like the thermostat or alarm system.

Jane had this problem on a focal wall in her living room. She thought about having her thermostat moved to another wall around the corner, but it would be too costly. Jane has a collection of quilts. So our minds started cooking, why not put the quilt over the thermostat!

For easy access we put the quilt on a swing-arm curtain rod, found at most big-box retailers that carry home decor. We found ours at Linens -n- Things.

Have you ever had this dilemma?

What have you done to attractively hide the most unattractive elements in a room?
