Hide & Seek TV Screen

Blue Egg Brown Nest has built a Hide & Seek TV Screen. When we build our home we knew we would be putting the TV above the fireplace, but did not want to see it. I refinished individual frames, found vintage postcards and had my husband fasten them together to create a screen to open & close.

      Very simple to do. Possible two ways.

      #1 more expensive - make a hole in the wall and edge your TV in. Create a wooden frame around your TV and put hinges on the side. For the front, connect / create several frames. Voila!

      #2 less expensive. Create a frame, 1 inch thick on the sides of your TV. Put hinges on the side. For the front, connect / create several frames. Voila!

    We hung our t.v. but not over the fireplace as we were advised the heat from it, as we actually use the fireplace routinely in the winter, would shorten the lifespan of the t.v. It is on the side wall now. Hiding like the would still be an aesthetic idea!!
