|Seems like one of the topics that comes up over and over again is where to place tv and/or how to hide it or lessen its impact. I was searching for something else and saw this. Seemed worth posting. If the rustic look isn't for you, maybe graphic fabric panels or?? |
|I thought about a shadow box with doors that open. Or shadow box with a mirror that the tv shows threw when on .They have that where dh works.|
|That is creative. But I gotta say, I personally don't think that looks better than a TV would look.|
|I love that barn door tv door hide, olychick. I love cabin, barn, real wood, rustic decor. Thanks for showing this, I've seen those as big doors but not a tv hideaway :)|
|I've seen those as well as a "to the floor" pair of barn doors over a TV. I personally like what I came up with better. 2 panels slide to the left, 1 to the right. They open and close with one finger. Copper is repeated throughout our interior and exterior. The door to the right of FP was made from a wood and metal shutter I found. It hides the DISH equipment and DVD storage. |

|Allison, I love what you did.|
|Very cool idea, I like it. |
We have our TV behind our couch in a sofa table. It is totally concealed in the cabinet when not in use. We have a remote that raises it up out of the cabinet when we want to watch. It is a perfect solution for us.
|Wow, I love this. May be I could also print some pics on it, then it will be oil painting when it is closed. But will turned out to be TV after opening. Wow!|
|Allison, nice to see you again. |
I always want to come live in your house.
|I don't have a pic on line but in a mag I saw a collection of gold framed botanicals in an array of like 6 x 4...all the frames were touching....what wasn't seen was the hinges and they folded back like shutters to reveal the TV behind.|
|Thanks, Oly. |
LOL Bronwynsmom. You can come visit anytime, but now is not a good time - unless you LOVE pollen!
My first idea was to order a screen and make it work. Found one at Gump's but returned, since the colors were not as shown online. Then I searched for wallpaper that didn't disappear when standing in the kitchen. Nothing. Thought about artwork, but it would have to be cut - too large to just take to one side. Can't go up due to speaker. Then about 3am one night it hit me - sliding panels, copper. Duh....
Annie, I had that photo saved too! They opened up like v^v^v^.
|I was intrigued by the method mentioned by Annie and Allison so I went searching for a pic. Didn't find it yet, but came upon this. Thought I'd post it for others who are looking for a solution so these things will be in one post.|

|Thanks, Allison, but we are quite well supplied with pollen just now. :>)|
|I love this one; but suspect I could have it made for less, and if you like the rustic look, old house windows would be perfect!|

|This one is cool but a bit pricey|

|It's similar to that but fancier. I used to have it bookmarked on the framing website that made it. I'll see if I can locate in my spare time (ha ha). They also used it in an ad in back of magazines (Architectural Digest, Southern Accents and/or Veranda) for several years. |
This isn't it, but pretty:

|This isn't it either, but very similar. I remember it having more frames connected and in a formal living room: |
|Yup, that was it! Great job finding it!|
|I had plenty of time as I was being held captive by grand baby sleeping next to me on sofa. ;D|
|I was looking at this thread again, thinking about if there is any way I could ever have a tv in my LR, and somehow I ended up on Pinterest and found this. There are more great ideas, so I'm linking it for others looking for tv solutions. I'm hoping others can read pinterest even if not a member?|
