I've been trying to think of a way to hide my TV. I hate when the TV is the main focus point in a room and I hate having the TV on when company is over. Well I started browsing the web and found that Pottery Barn sold a TV cabinet that was 2 mirrors and behind it was your TV. When closed you didn't even know the TV was there. Problem is, that cabinet was $600. Yikes.
I thought about mirrors but they are so heavy. I started doing a search on line and found the perfect thing. At Wayfair I found 3 canvas prints that go together as a set. Now the challenge was how to make a cabinet. Well, I stared at the pictures for about a month until I finally got up the nerve to tackle this project. I took this back and forth off the wall no less than 6 times....oh and once even fell off the ladder. But needless to say it's finished, it's perfect and it didn't cost $600, in fact I like it even better than the one I saw at Pottery Barn.
I originally hadn't planned on putting a top to the box but had to add it. The pictures wouldn't close correctly and I needed to add that part so I could put a magnet to hold it closed.
I'm getting closer!
It's perfect. Now I have to take it back down so that I can stain all the wood. I know, should have done before I mounted it but I wanted to make sure it was right.
Cords all hidden and wood stained. I love it!
