Me: Hey can we get a new TV?
Wife: No, there is nothing wrong with ours.
Me: Darn, ok. Hey what if I build this cool frame around it?
Wife: <3 <3 <3 OK! <3 <3 <3
So this is a project from quite a while back, one of my first builds that got me hooked on woodworking actually. I made a few modifications (obviously) since our TV was super thin it just wasn't going to work the way I wanted. I decided to go with more of a tapered look instead. It was my first experience with the "antiquing" technique, after lots of trial and error I ended up getting the look we were going for. It was overall a fun and fairly easy build, with a few learning moments along the way. The only time any of these projects seem "complicated," is when you over think everything, like I do :)
