Decorating Around the TV in the Bedroom

Hey guys! Today I want to share with you how I made the TV disappear in my bedroom. I've always struggled wondering what to do around, above, under, beside, ... the stupid TV. 

I love chalkboards so why not have one in the bedroom. I had this old piece of plywood that used to be the back of a bookcase we used to have in the living room. I painted it with chalkboard paint and left the edges raw so that they would mimic trim.

After applying 3 coats of paint, I hung it above the dresser, behind the TV.

Notice how the TV isn't the focal point anymore... Yay!



I added hooks and little baskets that I've collected from the thrift store. 


I love how this looks. What do you think? 
I hope you were inspired! 
Thank you for stopping by Thrift My House.

  17. That was a terrific idea it just totally blends in with it now and such a great idea to add the baskets along the top, gives it that extra border to draw your eye away from the tv!

  19. Brilliant! And the idea to leave the edges natural is something I never would have thought of.

    (Who am I kidding...I wouldn't have thought of any of it!)

  27. Well, we just moved a TV into the Master Suite, The Man wants one in there and I've been wondering how to make it disappear, while still enjoying that we have it in there to watch. This is a wonderful suggestion, it does virtually disappear! Thank You for Sharing! Blessings from the Arizona Desert... Dawn... The Bohemian
