What T.V.? Do you see a T.V.?
There it is. This was my problem. I have been searching for some kind of armoire for the television in my bedroom, but nothing was just right or fit into my budget. I decided to move it into the corner and build a fabric screen. I used a Waverly fabric that I bought many years ago, at some great price that I don't remember. I have many yards of it. So, for the price of some inexpensive lumber, I was able to hide my little problem.
I made three panels. Two sides and the bottom were made from 1x2 pine boards. I made the sides 6 feet tall and cut the center to make the width 24 inches.
For the top piece, I cut one continuous shape from a 1x6 pine board. I drew a paper pattern, traced it onto the board, and cut out with a jigsaw. I then cut the board into three 24 inch pieces.
I attached the boards together with corner braces and L brackets.
I cut the fabric about 5 inches wider than the screen and stapled it to the back, pulling the fabric tightly. I matched the pattern of the fabric across all three panels, just like wallpapering. I decided to use folding screen hinges, or double action hinges, so that the screen could be folded back and forth in any direction. I'm glad I decided to do that, it makes the screen much more versatile.
Soo..., after getting blisters from my staple gun, stapling the fabric to the wrong side of a panel, and replacing the hinges because I had never heard of "double action" hinges, I finally finished my screen.
After spending so much time on this project, I really want to share it. I'll be linking to:
Hope to see you there.
