How do you make your tv fit in with your decor???? check it out...
this tutorial?? okay, well I was not very satisfied with the way my t.v just was a HUGE EYESORE on this big white wall. And since, I rent I can't do too much about it. At the time I attempted to re-do the wall with the contact paper, all I had on hand was white, and I didn't want to go out and buy some in another color if it wasn't going to turn out.
Well, a week after I found this roll of Martha Stewart contact paper at Big Lots for $3. So I bought it. And as you can see in the photo, I am in the process of switching out some of the white with the green. (And I took off the spindle-y shapes because they were too "under-the-sea" for me.)
Anyway, that t.v STILL bugged me to no end. So this is what I did:
1. measured the t.v.
2. measured out the lengths on the contact paper.
3. cut the strips, one 1 in wide, and one 1/4 in wide for each side.
4. applied the contact paper to the t.v.
Instantly that t.v became less harsh against the wall. oh and how do you like the fact that the iPod matches everything? funny coincidence. This tutorial kinda reminds me of this one I did last year....
