Hot or Not? Flat Panel TV Covers?

Hot or Not? Flat Panel TV Covers?

Hmm, we like the idea behind Melissa's Instructables for a Flat Screen TV Cover. She has a point about keeping a valuable large panel screen protected from dust and scratches (our cats occasionally like to paw at our 40" LCD to our horror). But at the same time, we think a cover like this draws way too much attention to itself and looks out of place. What do you think? Is this the compromise that "promote(s) marital harmony" like Melissa claims? Or this crafting gone too far?

Personally we think this is a nice setup without the cover. Perhaps if the LCD's case was white, the set would be less visible, but otherwise I don't think anyone would think the modestly sized LCD would be much of an eyesore, especially with the assortment of other objects surrounding it. And if anything, women today are just as much into their large TV sets as men, so whose to say women want to hide their flat panels?
