I love watching TV but am not crazy about how the TV it self looks. For Viola´s room we made a TV frame of foam board (kapaskiva). We simply attached it to the front with double stick tape, the sides should not be covered though a TV needs to breath. I found some pictures on my phone from when Jens made it that you might like.
And if you are a somewhat decent drawer and know how to handle a carpet knife, you can make one too.
To make one you need: Foam board. Carpet knife. Pencil. Permanent marker. And something to attach it to you TV, like double stick tape or Velcro.
And most important: an idea of what you want it to look like.
We decided on a old looking TV and with the board already being white we kept it simple and drew the outlines with a black permanent marker.
But first Jens made a sketch on his computer (this is how we start all our projects-with a digital sketch)
Then he drew the frame with a pencil on the board and then with the permanent marker.
The edges needed some black too.
And don´t forget to watch TV with your kids. Here is the perfect movie!
