Im all about hiding eyesores. I love clever roundups with tips and tricks for making your home more aesthetically pleasing. Ive put a couple of them to good use already. My thermostat is hidden behind a picture and my wireless router is also cleverly disguised on the bookshelf. One thing that I had never really considered an eyesore until now was the TV. How to hide it? Liz Maria came up with a brilliant way to hide it while adding to the overall decor of the room! nice.
Sadly, using a sliding barn door and industrial pipe wouldnt work for me. Even If I could hide it the rest of the room would still be in plain sight. Weve committed to only having one TV, and its in our family room and that room is a free-for-all; its the one room thats impossible to stay caught up on. There are toys, movies, books, my desk, comfy couches, children and animals. Lol. Its basically well loved and lived in. But theres no reason why you shouldnt put this lovely DIY to use in your home ASAP! Maybe I could do this in my guest room? Guests might like a TV.
Bob Vila has some other suggestions on how to hide your flat screen if the barn door doesnt fit your style. I think the map is my favorite. See them all here.
