Most of us have it and so many times we wish it would not be in our photos…a TV! There was something exciting that happened last week at my home and before it happened I wanted to make sure that piece was hidden. I will be the first to say that I love having my tv but, it is not picture friendly. That is when I realized it was time to figure out how to hide this. Many searches through friends and Pinterest for ideas and DIY’s , I knew what I wanted to do.
I wanted to find a picture or a canvas to go over the tv but, also something that it would be easy to still move to watch the tv. That is when I saw inspiration on creating a hinge canvas tv cover. I searched for weeks for a canvas that was a farmhouse vintage style that was the size that I needed to cover the tv. A week and half before the big day I went pickin’ at a local barn sale for some small vintage pieces and stumbled upon this huge 8ft vintage sign. There is a great story behind this sign and it made this find so special.
This large sign was picked by a true inspiration to me Beth from Olde Tyme Market Place back in 2015 and she sold it when she moved from NC. When I first shared about it on Instagram she messaged me and I was thinking this is amazing.
Now friends let’s get down to the project. I was so excited about the history of the sign I just had to share with you all. This DIY can be done with any canvas, sign, or even photo as long it is wider and taller than your TV.
What materials you will need:
Now let’s get started
5. Since my sign was so large, I cut two more 2ft boards to use a braces inside of the frame so it would not bend in.
6. Stain your wood
7. Attach one side of your door hinge to your built frame
8. Once these are attached take your cover piece and attach the other door hinge to the top of this piece. This will then create a way to open the covering piece.
9. Finally the last step is to open the covering piece to the full upright position and measure the distance between the sign and the frame. This is where you will put your dowel rod to hold the sign up.
This DIY has been one game changer when it comes to creating cozy spaces for photos. I love creating DIY’s that are functional with everyday needs in your home.
