disquising your sub

My Celestion S8 off ebay is a bit marked beyond repair and I need to decorate/disquise it to make it asthetically pleasing. I cannot hide it behind furniture so It,s a make over job. It,s video grey veneer, downward firing and connected via speaker cables in/out. My ideas are spraying it, fablon/melamine it, cover it in leather or fur to make a bit of a arty peice etc etc. Any ideas Lawrence Llewelyn Bowen?
 
Thanks to sarcasm, sarcasm and sons. As much as I love hi-fi and home cinema, I hate to see speakers and wires everywhere. God, I sound like the wife!:confused:

Well sorry. But honestly, it's huge. You're going to struggle to hide that. Only thing I can think of is to paint it the same colour as the walls in your room.

You're going to tell me they're wallpapered, aren't you?

JP 2 ideas to disguise you sub :

FirstLY plonk it beneath a nice table or lamp side table :

Secondly plonk it inside a £20 Corras Bedside cabinet from Ikea. Here is one used as a hifi rack, you simply don’t fit the shelf and there you have a subwoofer cloaking device.

Sarcasm aside (really, it was too much to resist), I have seen people stitch together a five sided box of fabric. Sort of like a square sock. Not only can you coordinate it with other soft furnishings, it softens the look of an otherwise rectangular box.
