Hiding my Ugly TV

I designed a cover to put over the "black hole" aka  the TV.     I like to make the family room look extra pretty when I entertain and since we don't have the TV on then,   I put a cover on it.

I've had lots of pretty covers over the years   (which I'll share later in my post)    but this one is already my favorite.

It only takes a minute to put it on and it looks just as pretty when I take it off and lay it on the armoire.

This is the first cover I've designed that wasn't hung on a tension rod across the front of the TV.    It's also the first time I've made a rag garland to hang in front of the screen.

After I made my basic rag garland.   I tied buffalo check mesh wire across the top of it.    

I just used the rag streamers to tie my mesh on to the basic garland.

I love the new look!

The TV cover I took down had been up since last Christmas,   so it was time for a fresh look.

Here are some of the covers I've used over the years......this one is a velvet baby blanket

Grey and white buffalo check.....

I made this one using soft fleece 

I always enjoy your visits so much.....please stop by again soon!


  1. A wonderfully decorated apartment and great photos

  2. You are always ingenious, Penny. Great ideas, all of them---remember when old tv's had lovely doors and hardware, surrounded in a lovely was for a reason, even then!

  3. Bonjour,

    Une manière originale de masquer l'écran de votre télévision.

    Gros bisous 🌸

  4. Great job Penny you would never guess that the garland hides the tv. Oh how I love the sofa cover it is beautiful.

  5. Good morning Penny, I love the the garland. If you made it longer it would be a great cover for a doorway that doesn't have a door or even a window covering. You always make mind starting thinking of other ways to use your new discovery. Thanks you so much.
    It is lovely.

  6. I liked all of your covers but your new one is amazing!

  7. I think the garland is my favorite, Penny. Thank you for sharing at Party In Your PJ's!

  8. Penny,
    That is one amazing cover for your TV!! Love it!!

  9. You are so creative. I hate looking at a t.v. too so I took it out. Hubby and I have been watching YouTube. Me on my laptop and him on his iPad. I love seeing all your covers. This new one is so cute.


It makes my day to hear from my friends!
