I admit it: I love TV. In fact, I'll even admit that I secretly watch reruns of The OC on the SoapNet channel (is it just me or was anyone else surprised how many black tie events these kids had to attend? You couldn't pay me to go to one of those when I was 16 going on 25). So, now that you know my secret shame, perhaps you can understand why I put this latest idea by the all-mighty Pottery Barn on my Most Ingenious list of 07: Framing your flatscreen.

Adding a frame around a TV--as elementary as it sounds--seems to elevate the flatscreen from evil recreational time-waster to a fine art installation, worthy of watching the entire Planet Earth miniseries or a meaty Peter Greenaway film while sipping a Chateau Pétrus Pomerol. However, I'm a bit queasy about plunking down $400-600 at PB for an accessory for my television, so if any of you have a DIY Television Frame Project you'd like to share, please do! After all, I still like the idea of creating my own art installation titled, "Marissa Cooper: Rehab By Way of Peach Schnapps."
