Because this is what my television looks like.
Lovely isn't it. And it has looked like this ever since we moved in, three and a half years ago. I love my living room. I've had compliments on the decor, the millwork, the color (Sherwin Williams "Ivoire"), etc. But this corner has been a blight.
So this non-do-it-yourself kind of girl decided to fix this embarrassment and do it herself! I decided that I wanted to create a little texture and cover the back of this sofa table with burlap. Nothing too drastic, but a subtle change. So off to Hobby Lobby I go for said fabric (at $3.99 a yard) and an upholstery gun.
I measured and stapled the fabric to the back...
Cut strategically placed slits for the plethora of wires and cables...
And... Voila! What a difference! If I do say so, my "non-do-it-yourself-er" kind of girl.
There is a little bunching around the bottom, but the cords are hidden... And if you aren't looking, it really doesn't jump out at you. I'm pretty excited!
