About a week ago I had posted ideas
on how to hide a flat screen. (post here)
I decided in order to take the focus off of the flat screen I must draw attention to something else.
Although the TV is still visible I am hoping the art will
detract from the large black rectangle!

Color me happy
I found the prints at Cost Plus World Market. They were 50% off and I had a 15&% coupon which brought my cost to $4 a print with mat.
Aaron Brothers was having their 1 cent sale so I bought 4 of these frames for$26.
I placed plain white paper in the exact dimension of the frame on the wall to get a visual affect.
Then began to hang the art. My girlfriend, Irene, suggested I bring the plant from the hallway in to soften the space, huge improvement!
We are talking about possibly adding shadow boxes or
board n batten to the wall as well.

I am just happy that the space is ALMOST done.
~Thanks for stopping in~
Great job Kristen! I do the same with my flat screen…it sits on top of the fireplace. So I hang pictures and typeset drawer aroung it to draw attention away from the big black box. lol
Beautiful prints…love them!

Was it you that posted the sliding barn style flat screen cover? I can't remember, but I found it here http://kristendukephotography.com/?p=7533 then I googled sliding flat screen covers and there are some very interesting ones. I have the same problem with mine. Check out the one at the link, it might inspire you to go a different route.
Your wall is going to be great! Love all the options we have with the new flat screens– I did a similar post a couple of weeks ago, showing TV gallery walls 🙂
Beautiful prints! I wish CostPlus was closer to me. I love that store!
Looking forward to seeing the finished room.
I love your bird prints! Adding the plant in the corner was a great idea!
I love it!!! Xoxoxo ~Ashley
You are doing a great job of "camouflaging" that t.v…and what a great price you got on those art prints!
Looks great Kristin! I love the prints you found. They are beautiful!
Love the prints, Kristin! Fun colors – perfect in that space with your blue in the bookcase, and I love how the coral pops.
Looks wonderful Kristin. I have a very similiar space like yours in my bedroom and deciding how to arrange wall art over the Tv is frustrating. Thanks for sharing.
They are sweet prints! I think they look great there, and, the plant does soften the space considerably, without overwhelming it. Great balance!
Looks great, Kristin! What's the saying … "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em," so, I like that you made the TV a part of the wall grouping! My eye goes straight up to the fabulous bird prints … LOVE those! It's all coming together beautifully!
It's looking fantastic Kristin! 🙂
Looking good, Kristin! It is a battle between style and function, isn't it? I like how it virtually disappears even when it is right out in the open. xo Diana
It's shaping up nicely Kristin! I am totally digging on the prints too – very nice!
Looking good! I like the addition of the tree as well. Nice score on the World Market sale.
Looks Great! Love those prints!
Love the new prints! I like the addition of the tree as well – it really softens that corner. Thanks for sharing.
The prints look so good and the price of the frames can't be beat!! We've come a long way from when the TV cabinet was the #1 focus in the room!!
It looks lovely! You did good!
I think if u decide to add more art maybe it'll look more like your inspiration. Also if the art has black in it I think it'll blend too. I definetly like plant there too : ) have a wonderful night!
It looks really nice, Kristin! I have a soft spot for birds so I love the bird prints. Very pretty and what a great deal you got! I think the plant is perfect…softens the corner and adds a nice touch of height.
Kristen, it looks great! Love that rug too!
This looks great. I love the colors on the birds really pulls your eyes up
love the prints!
Those do a great job of softening the space. I like the addition of the tree in the corner, too.
Your space is looking great!
I love affordable art, but most of all, I love affordable interior design projects. This was a great way to make the space look more attractive. I haven't got a wall TV, but have been planning how to hang one for ages. This is a great idea.
I love those bird prints! They look so good in the space!
