You’ve Got to Hide Your Cord Away | Apartment Therapy Chicago
Hide exposed cords with a cord concealer painted to match the wall (shelving etc.). I like one of the comments though to “embrace it” replace the black cord with a contrasting hazard yellow or something similar. You have an industrial chic shelving unit, don’t “grandma” it up.
P.S. I showed my mom this shelving unit last week and she thinks it is perfect for their rental unit.

Pour Spout Mason Jars

When finished with an empty cardboard salt container, cut the whole round top piece off and measure to fit a canning jar ring. Trace and cut with the flat part with scissors to fit a pint canning jar. Fill the jar with sugar, then cut a second one from a second empty salt container for non-dairy coffee creamer, spices, or flour. The pour spouts make for easy access to your sugar and creamer. 
*If desired, half pint jars can be used instead of pint jars.
