DIY :: Hide your TV in Plain Sight

We like having a TV in the bedroom. I know a lot of people are against this, but we do almost all of our TV watching in the bedroom. It's just more comfortable. When we first moved in, we had a hard time finding a place for the TV to go. We thought of everything, suspending it from the ceiling, hiding it in the chest at the foot of the bed, hiding in the ceiling, but of course we don't have the funds or knowledge to do any of that stuff.



We decided to attempt to hide the TV in plain sight by adding it to a frame collage. Yes, it still looks like a TV, but at least it blends in a bit and acts like "moving" art. We might try and add a frame around the TV, but neither of us is very handy or patient. So we'll see how that goes.

You'll also notice Kai, our kitty, who makes sure to place himself in all our photos. I swear it seems like he follows the camera.



We attempted to try and hide the wires by adding a little ceramic owl. The owl is sitting on an Apple TV. Obviously this didn't hide the wires that well, but the wires don't bother us too much.



Here is an example of what the TV looks like when the it's on. It looks like art, right? Also, in case you were wondering. The lamp shade is from World Market.

  1. Really nice job positioning all the artwork! I actually think this looks better than an obvious mirror or cabinet with a giant TV hiding behind it.

    1. Thank you! In this case, the only reason we don't have a cabinet or a mirror was because we didn't want to spend the money for one. Trying to save money made us get creative!
