Guest Room Hutch Makeover {How To Disguise A TV}

I promise that this will be the last sneak peek of the guest room. Total reveal soon!

A NQV (Not Quite Vintage) Thomasville hutch replaced the dresser and mirror in this room.

I always have a TV for my guests so that they can wind down after a busy day and watch the news or

a favorite entertainment channel.

The TV was placed in the hutch; however, the look of this was not sitting well with me.

So, I proceeded to think of a solution of how to disguise a TV without having to use a curtain rod for

mounting fabric and not having to drill holes into the door.

So I came up with this:

I made a template with a foam core board.

Wrapped and glued the fabric to the board . . . easy peasy.

So how do I apply these to the door?

With self sticking velcro!

Placed on the front of the panel so that the velcro would adhere to the inside of the door.

I used a coordinating fabric on the inside of door.

I think I will be adding some decorative trim on the outside edges of the coordinating fabric.

Loved the way this project turned out.

It lends for me to be able to switch out the fabric easily . . . as you know, me being me, always

look for a chance just to do that!

Have a great weekend enjoying doing the things you love!

  15. Genius! I love it! You did a great job and I bet it didn’t take too long. That is nice that you provide a TV for your guests. We have one in the bonus room for our guests and it DOES get used. They have the whole upstairs when they come so it is nice and private for them.

  20. Thank you, thank you so much for this idea, Shirley! I have an entertainment center with an area that has glass doors. That particular section has become home to our photo albums and loose photos that really needs concealment. I do believe I’m going to start looking for the right fabric and try your idea! You’re so creative!!! Rosie@ The Magic Hutch

    What a great idea! I love the fabric too. Its good that I live too far to visit you because I may not want to leave…lol

  34. Shriley, your makeover is wonderful! It is amazing what a little ingenuity and fabric can do. LOVE the buffalo checks!

  35. Wonderful idea and looks fantastic…

  36. I don’t think you could have chosen a better fabric for that white hutch Shirley! It looks perfect, and of course your solution is equally perfect! I also prefer a TV that is hidden, although right now we only have one (out of 6!) that is out of sight.
