Canvas TV Cover Up

I love that our TV is mounted above our fireplace mantel. However, when we’re not watching it, which is more often than not these days, I find myself staring at a black box on the wall.


After some extensive searching, and some far too expensive options online, I finally found a post through good ol’ Pinterest that seemed reasonable. She took a canvas print from Ikea and made a great cover up for their tv. Me, I decided to complicate matters by ordering a poster print, then covering it with modge podge onto a canvas I got for 40% off at Michael’s. Then with the help of the hubs, we made a backing that would hook over the tv, so we can easily remove the canvas when we feel like watching the boob tube.

The whole thing cost me about $40 by the time it was all said and done. Not bad if I do say so myself! We’ve been having fun looking up different places on the map too, which has been a bonus.


The room looks much better with the tv cover up. I’m so pleased with it! I do want to eventually make a frame for it, but it works great for now.
