Use Black Paint to Hide TVs in Plain Sight

Use Black Paint to Hide TVs in Plain Sight

Over the years, we've seen a number of tips and tricks to try and hide your TV in plain sight, but here's an easy trick you may have thought of. We're talking black paint here folks (a big can of it) and using it to tie the room together in a modern/sophisticated way.

Why black? Not only does the dark palette create an easy blend together between screen and wall (we've always found that big black TV rectangle an eyesore in any given situation), but you also can run them black cables without worrying about them becoming a cluttered mess. Heck, some may even prefer that 'industrial' feeling that's becoming so ever popular these days.

Most importantly, we dig the simplicity of it all. No wallpaper sticky mess. No strange painter's tape. Just black. Sure, it may be a bit more moody than your normal cup of 'modern' tea, but it's hard to argue with the sheer efficiency and practicality of it all, especially when it looks this darn good!

What do you think? Too dark for comfort or just the right kind of 21st century camo?
