For Carpeted Floors
Connect the wire to the existing telephone jack.
Pull the wire slightly taut and push it in between the wall's baseboard and carpet.
Move along the wall, using the ruler to push the wire in between the baseboard and carpet. There should be plenty of space to hide the thin telephone wire.
For Non-Carpeted Floors
Connect the wire to the existing telephone jack
Remove the quarter round off the baseboard with a pry bar and hammer for the length that you want to run the wire.
Tuck the wire into the open space with a ruler, making sure to place it slightly under the dry wall, so that the nails won't hit it when you reinstall the quarter round.
Replace the quarter round along the baseboard with hammer and nails.
Things You Will Need
- Pry bar
- Avoid demolition by tucking telephone wires into a plastic tubing, known as a raceway, that is run along the top edge of the baseboards. Many raceways can be painted to match your decor and frequently have an adhesive strip for easier installation.
