How to Disguise a TV when you're not using it with one of these clever ideas!
There are a ton of great ideas out there.

I am sure you are bound to find something that you’d like to try in your own home.

If you have some time and want to put in some elbow grease, you can build this sliding barn door to go over your tv like Kristen Duke.

Here is another diy you can build. Check out this large media cabinet from Shanty to Chic with sliding barn doors.

I love the look of the doors on this one!

Don’t feel like building anything?

How about making your tv blend into the wall all together by painting your wall black.

Then create a gallery wall around your tv for an extra pop.

Have a love for old maps?

Find a vintage pull down map and mount it above your tv.

When you want to watch tv, just roll it up and when you don’t, you have a map as a large piece of art.

You can also use a large piece of canvas art mounted in front of your television as well.

This one is a simple idea and just uses some L brackets on the back of the art and it just sits on top of the tv.

Remove when you want to watch. Easy peasy!

Have a large paneled wall in your living room?

How about creating a hidden area behind the paneling to conceal your tv?!

No one has to even know it’s there!
