TV Turned Artwork

Happy Wednesday, everyone! I had a principal in high school that would come over the PA system every Wednesday and without fail announce, “Good morning, everyone! It’s humpday! All. Day. Long” He said it just like that too. All. Day. Long. Ugh, right? Also, sightly creepy because hump day to high school students meant something totally different!

Wow, I digress. Too often. Moving on…

What I am the most inspired by is how the frame around the flat screen TV makes it look like part of that awesome gallery wall. Because, let’s get real, EVERYBODY (well most people) have a TV in the living room. And, yes, it is the center of attention. It just is. I can’t stand it on a design show when they’re like “I really don’t want the TV to be the central focus of the room.” Which, occasionally I would agree if you’ve got a stellar room with amazing features. But, take my living room for example: 15′ x 12′ with no beautiful fireplace, architectural interest, or great natural light. It’s basic in the most basic kind of ways. Oh, and we watch TV quit often.

All that to say, hiding a TV sometimes just looks like a hidden TV. We all know it’s there, but in truth those armoire doors you shut when the company comes over more than likely stay open when you’re going in and out of your daily life.

So, I totally and completely appreciate this cute, playful idea of just putting a frame around it and making it look like the art it is. Also, I’m thinking that our $25 Craigslist TV could really look awesome with a playful frame.

What do you think? Love it or hate it?
