By now you’ve probably heard of or seen the Samsung Frame TV. Not only are they beautiful, I mean they look like a piece of art instead of a box black box eye sore, but they are also beautifully expensive. Although I would love a new, modern profiled TV, $1600 for one just wasn’t in the budget, so like with most DIYs, I found a creative way to get the look for less.
STEP 1: CHOOSE MOLDING + BUILD FRAME
I started with choosing some molding that fits my home’s aesthetic. Depending on the thickness of your TV’s current frame you may be able to go a lot thinner that I did. Ours was pretty wide, so I chose this molding that has a traditional feel and was wide enough to fully cover our TV frame.
I measured the dimensions of our TV screen so I would be sure not to block any of the picture with the frame. Then I used my miter saw to cut the trim to size to build my frame.
A little pro tip here, to help ensure your frame is perfectly square, make a cut, then line up your cut piece next to the uncut piece to get a perfect mark that will result in two pieces exactly the same size. Sometimes going on measurements alone you might find there is a little difference between cuts.
