I love television just as much as the next HGTV fan, but that big hunk of electronics takes up a pretty prominent place in my living room.

black paint around the tv

    This is a good idea. Although, I often wonder how the heat from a fireplace, over time, could affect the TV. Another alternative is to place the TV in a frame on the wall. According to the design of your room, it could be streamlined, or more ornate in style. <a href="http://www.skylarkmanor.com” target=”_blank”>www.skylarkmanor.com

    My husbands 52" flat screen would be nice up over the fireplace. I'd love to it there, but my husband does not like the idea of it being that high. Our livingroom is huge and he doesn't like the idea of having it up that high. He says it would be uncomfortable on his head and neck. What do you all think? It's possible………..
