10 Clever Ways to Make Your TV Less Hideous
We wouldn’t trade our Netflix nights for anything—not even a picture-perfect home. But isn’t there a way to make our TV look like…erm...less of a vacuous black hole? Surely. We sourced the web for ten stylish ways to camouflage your hardest-working electronic.
Paint Your TV Wall A Dark Hue
A dark-toned paint job will cause a flat-screen to visually recede.
Install Sliding Barn Doors Over A Media Center
Gorgeous passageway or clever electronics disguise? It’s hard to say.
Install A Pull-Down Map Above It
For vintage charm and a seamlessly easy cover up.
Install Framed Art Sliders
This chic DIY (which relies on drawer sliders mounted to the wall) only costs $30.
Tuck It Inside An Armoire
An oldie but a goodie: Stuff her inside an armoire and call it a day.
Create A Folding Screen With Art Prints
Hinge frames together so that they fold like a shutter.
Hang A Tonal Gallery Wall Behind It
Incorporating your TV into a wall covered with black boxes will make it have less of a sore thumb effect visually.

Step 1) Find a large, lightweight piece of art. Step 2) Tack L-shaped brackets to the top of it. Step 3) Pop over the TV when it's not in use. Voilà.
