Frame It In Fencing
You can build a beautiful rustic looking frame around your TV using old fencing. If you have some wooden fencing lying around or you can pick some up at a yard sale somewhere, you can use those boards to build a very interesting frame around your television and it will look like you had it custom built.
With some door casing trim, you can put a beautiful spin on your television frame and make it match any décor. This entire project costs less than $25 from start to finish and you can complete the entire thing in less than a weekend. Pick up the casing trim and shelving at your local hardware or home improvement store and the other supplies you probably already have on hand.
Hide It Behind Art
If you prefer to have beautiful artwork gracing your walls instead of the TV most of the time, you can easily build a bracket that will allow you to actually hang your artwork over your television to hide it away. When you want to watch television, you simply raise the artwork up and the TV is right underneath it.
Mix It In With Silhouettes
By displaying your flat screen on the wall with various artwork, it will virtually be hidden away while it is actually in plain view. You just have to choose the frames that you want and select images to fit those frames. The key is in making all of your hangings look like they belong together and then the TV just magically fits in.
Put It Behind Closed Doors
Put it behind closed barn doors, that is. Making sliding barn doors to cover your TV is probably a lot easier than you think. The doors are installed on tracks so that they actually slide to cover the television when it is not in use. When you want to watch, just open the barn doors and let the fun out.
