Covering a large, bare wall...

can sometimes be a daunting task. 
It's overwhelming and can get cluttered quickly...not to mention, expensive.

I'll confess, when I did this, my inspiration came right out of an Urban Outfitters store. (Oh, what I'd do to spend a day with those designers...)

Anyway...it seemed so simple...and even better, inexpensive.

Here was my blank canvas...

These were my dirt-cheap, thrift store frames...

...and now, my covered wall.

By the way, if you were wondering, our Miami trip turned out even better than I'd hoped for...yet again.
However, no run-ins with David.
...there's always next time. Pin It Now!


  1. Glad you had a fun trip! I've been all over Florida, but never Miami. I love how the frames turned out! It makes such a difference. I especially love the one around the tv, so cute!

  2. Love the frames! It makes it look very architectural!

  3. Wow, and for Christmas you can hang little objects by ribbon from the top of the frames if you wanted to change things up - it looks great!

  4. I love an empty frame. What a fun look.

  5. Looks great, makes your televison look larger.

  6. It looks awesome!!!
    I have a dresser similar to that that I want to put my media stuff in it. Did you make any changes, to put your cable box or PVR in it?
    Just came over from Home Sweet Nest!

    1. When we hooked up the TV, we ran the wires through the wall/ceiling to a closet...which holds all the STUFF that goes with the TV, satellite box, DVD player, etc...
      Thanks for stopping by!! :)

  7. Holly,

    What a cheap easy fun idea! I love the simplicity of the frames. Go Urban Outfitters!

    Thanks for the inspiration.

  8. Framing the TV... what a great idea! When we remodeled our "TV" room ,which is also my husband's office, he built a recessed box in the wall, which houses all of our stereo equipment, dvd player, etc., and covered it with a hinged framed painting.


Comments make me smile! :)
