Cozy Boho Mid-Century TV Wall Makeover
Another home project is under our belts and it feels great to have this one finished. We moved into our home almost 5 years ago now and one of the first things I had my husband install was some shiplap on this wall.
Although I love the look of shiplap in other homes, I immediately regretted it in our own home. My style leans away from traditional country and this shiplap really looked country farmhouse in our space.
Sometimes we make mistakes and wr just have to live with them and that was the case here. You can imagine my joy when this spring my husband suggested redoing this wall and maybe upgrading our tv. I was so excited.
The first thing I did was create a simple design board using Canva. Canva is my favourite tool when it comes to any design work I may be doing and I couldn’t live without it. You can check out my tutorial on how to make a design board using Canva here.
Original Design Board
Making our own console table for tv stand
After scrolling through Pinterest, I didn’t really find any inspiration for a jumping off place with this wall. I ended up searching boho mid century console tables and found this beauty from Serena and Lily. Though I loved the look I did not love the price tag! Luckily my husband runs a home decor and furniture shop so I asked him if we could make something similar.
My original idea was to use fluting inset into the cabinet doors and paint them a blush pink. I then thought we would stain the wooden exposed parts the color we use on our primitive stool shown in the design board.
As my husband got closer to finishing the cabinet I had grown tired of the pink that was rolling around in my mind and decided to switch colors and go with a similar blue to the original inspiration piece. We actually found a really pretty light blue spray paint from Home Depot!
We also decided not to stain the wood in the end because I was worried it would blend in with out flooring too much. We left it natural and it adds some nice contrast to our living room.
Once we knew what size the tv stand would be we were able to order a frame tv in the right size. We ended up going with the 55″ frame tv and love it. We ended up purchasing the teak frame that you can purchase separately and I purchased this print from Etsy for $1.50 and uploaded it using the Samsung Smart Things app.
Creating a Gallery wall with a frame tv
At first I went with a very simplified “gallery wall” that was just the bird photo and two photos to the left of it however when my husband came home he felt like it was too bare on the top so I scoured the house and ended up adding more frames in a “stair step” pattern.
Whenever I am creating a gallery wall I always always always use command strips. They are the key to making a gallery wall effortless and I have been using them for years and years without ever a single photo falling down!
