Hi does anyone have pictures of what they hang over their tv? I have a flat screen and am curious as to what people hang over theirs. If the picture is too big then it is too high above it and looks way off, but if too small then that would look off too. I am looking to do something different than what I have always done, just hang a picture. I think it would be fun to try something new Smile

Could you first share a picture of your room where you would like to hang the picture?

This is a contemporary space, but I think you could do something similar with other styles.

I can try to put a picture but it may not be very clear.

Heyyy I did it lol So in the picture you can see the door to the right and to the left where you see the lady figurine, that is the end of that wall. Hope this helps, it's not a big space but works well for me and my tv room Smile

Those pictures have good ideas, thank you! I have a couple of black shelves, I have the blocks that you can hang and have pictures but am stumped on how to do it all. Thanks again for pics, it helps to see different ones.

Craftybbq,I am so glad you posted this.It is a huge problem once we get new tv's.I have the same issues.But a much bigger 55in.tv,DH had to have.I was going to hang either iron scroll thingy above mine or maybe smaller pictures.We just found a tv stand last night.So I'll be re-configuring out new decor ideas too.

Love the inspiration pics.I like the thought of shelfs and displaying touches of home on them.

Jackierenette we have a bigger tv in the living room. This one is for my tv room/craft room. I don't have to worry about it in the livingroom because the tv is in the corner and I have bookcases next to it.

Would it be too many shelves if I have one big one above the sofa? I put the blue cabinet I painted in here so now it feels colorful. I can probably add some more blue in here to but I am going to try to add some color that goes with the blue so there isn't too much blue.

I really like that painting turned into a door. Mine is on a stand but I will keep that in mind for when we get one for our bedroom. Thank you for showing me that.

Hang your own family photos children photos over on the device. Which is above to your flat screen. Or any romantic of photos of your spouce. Will be very effective and happy to remember those moments whenever your eyes goes towards wall picture hangings.

I plan to do this with ours, once we redo our LR. It doesn't show above the tv well, but it looks like a decorative mirror or maybe wrought iron decor like boolovespink has? I think the tv needs something along the shelf infront of it (be sure not to block the tv sensor) and something for height on the sides.
