Making Your TV Part of Your Decor – 2 More Ideas

May 13, 2011

I just wanted to do a tiny follow-up to last week’s post.

Firstly, Desiree (from Vosges Paris) was so kind to scan in this photo from VTWonen and e-mail it to me. Thank you, Desiree! I love the look of the raw, weathered wood, don’t you? While it may not be practical in all houses to have this type of built-in – I love seeing creative solutions like this and it reminds me to think outside the box.

Also, I remembered that Holly from Decor8 had mentioned making a TV cozy. I googled it and sure enough, Martha has some great DIY instructions (click link below image to find them). For someone like Astrid, who is really creative and skilled with textiles, this would be a great option for making a TV a bit more of a pretty object in the room when not in use.

    The wood idea is nice, but also — look at those cool hearts hanging from the ceiling! I could make that! And TV cosy is a fun idea, too — perhaps with an embroidered ‘screen’ showing a favourite show?!!

    I love that weathered wood built-in – it’s dreamy. That’d be fun to recreate! Nice find, Jadyn!

    when we first got our big screened tv several years ago, it was so hard to find a “container” for it. it sat on the floor for months. we finally found a really nice cabinet, and altho it doesn’t hide it, it frames it well.

    i always love looking at how other people solve that problem!
