the t.v. wall

Part of my plan to create a cozier living room includes changing the t.v. wall.  While I love the gallery wall, I’d prefer it in another room.

Last week, I asked for some suggestions on what to do with this wall on Hometalk.

And, both Vanessa from The Picket Fence and Kari from Thistlewood Farm suggested elevating the t.v.

I think that is a splendid idea.  So, I’ve decided to do that by bringing in a taller piece of furniture and likely will hang the t.v.  too.

I’ll be using a piece of furniture from another room in the house, so I won’t have to wait to find the perfect piece.

I’m keeping my fingers crossed for a reveal in the very near future, so stay tuned.

Until next time,

  1. I think that is a great idea too, Love this picture!!


  2. Cynthia, I’ve moved my buffet into the living room to raise the height of the t.v. and I LOVE it. I still plan to hang it though. And now that the t.v. is elevated, I’m enjoying the picture gallery better. It may not get moved.

  3. I’m anxious to see what you do. I have the same problem with our TV.

  4. Changing out the furniture that the t.v. was on has already made a huge difference. (The furniture is taller) Now I’m trying to decide what my next step is regarding what hangs on the wall around the t.v. I’m liking the gallery wall better now with the t.v. raised higher, but not quite sure about it. So, frankly, I’m curious to see what I do to. LOL!


  1. […] may recall that I moved that dresser into the living room a few weeks ago.  This is the week that I’m going to finish that project!  Here’s my […]
