DIY-TV


A big life shift contains and consists of many minor life shifts. A happy change I’ve made is I now live in a house without at TV.

Seriously? Yep!

‘But you’re gonna get one, right…?’ Nope!

But hey, I got music, radio, podcasts, I got the all-encompassing-web. I got you guys! Most of all, I got way to much to do and think and make and be … TV’s a thing of the past in my world! ……… well, except for ……….. I have got my own special variation that came about through serendipity.

As I unpacked the boxes of belongings, I kept the strong n sturdiest for future use.

I’m not gone get rid of this, now am I? Double walled = super tough, it’s a big flattish box I used to move biggish paintings.

When I noticed its original use, its next incarnation began to enfold in my head. My very own better-than-a-tv…

messy glue-y icky… not a neat corner in sight!

The big flat sides glued together (the smaller side edges will come into play in a future project, doubtless) Covered in a layer of paper and another of sheeting for a clean flat white drawing-pin-in-able surface. (but could equally be something bright n cheery, or mixy-matchy with furnishings – and is infinitely changeable too)

stapled into submission, the corners didn’t square up too bad

And at last, the postcards and flyers I gather up at shows and on gallery trips get to see the light of day.

So over time the ‘picture’ will evolve; it only shows images I love and inspires instead of distracting πŸ™‚

  1. I could very happily live without a tv, but the spousal unit would wither away (or work around the clock), so I compromise. I have however pondered for a while if boxes were good for that exact purpose, so thank you for testing the idea for me, LOL!

  2. Lol, your better-than-a-tv is perfect. You’ve given me a brilliant idea for showcasing my small postcard collection, thank you!

    I could be quite happy without TV, but not without the internet, I’d be very miserable without google.

    I appreciate the depth of your posts πŸ™‚
