TV Layering

Apparently I love fall so much that I decided to take the entire month of October off from blogging:) I’m back with a simple, fun project! Anyone else feel like your flat screen tv is taking over your living room instead of blending in? Me too!
This was what our tv looked like before just kinda hanging around and sticking out like a sore thumb. You can tell this pic was from awhile back because of the old dining set and lack of frame wall in the dining room.
Then I came across this inspiration pic with the ingenious idea of laying BEHIND your flat screen. Why didn’t I think of that? I was a little nervous that this appeared to be a 32″ and ours is a 42″, but I was ready to give it a go!
I went to HomeGoods (we finally got one in Memphis) and picked up a couple of frames and some inspirational art in complementary colors. I also added that tall white vase (one of my favorite x-mas presents from my MIL).
Now for the close-ups. I decided to put one of our favorite pics from our recent Mexico vaca in this one. I haven’t 100% committed to this pic – I think Ben is embarrassed that we’re in our swimmies:) It works for now.
Cue the “awwws”. There is nothing cuter than a golden retriever puppy so I couldn’t resist putting one of Cali’s puppy pics on display.
I’m usually not a big fan of these subway word art pieces, but this one caught my eye with the color and the quotes. “CREATE SOMETHING EVERY DAY” and “SNUGGLE AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE” are my two favorites:)
You can see how I was easily able to hang the pics behind the tv so that it blends in better. I’m still on a search for a dresser to put underneath the tv for storage space and to hide all the cords, but this was a definite upgrade. This is a work in progress, but that wall already feels so much warmer in the space!

What have you put on the back burner to fully enjoy fall? Who else is loving this layered look? Does your spouse squirm when you display swimsuit pics?

  1. I like the orange art piece with the possitive affirmations on it. 🙂 Love Dad

  2. You know…I bet you coukd make something cute to cover your cords, etc. My topmost did this in college. Get a mini curtain rod with a spring middle, then using your fav material you could make a small “curtain” down there…or cut off the bottom of a cute shower curtain. There will be some “sewing” or glueing involved, but you could do it!
