How to build a custom TV picture frame

How to build a custom TV picture frame

Building a decorative wood frame around a wall mounted TV is a great way to improve the look of the set. Here’s how to go about it.

 

How to build a frame around a TV:

Measure the size of the TV.

Cut and assemble a box from 1×4 or 1×6 lumber with the inside dimensions 1/8” larger than the outside dimensions of the TV.

Miter the corners of the decorative molding (we used door casing). Make the inside of the frame 1/4″ larger than the inside of the box (3/8” larger than the outside of the TV) to leave a 1/8” reveal around the box.

Nail and glue the mitered frame to the edge of the box.

Stain or paint the frame and box unit.

Apply self-adhesive felt strips to the inside of the frame.

Use screw eyes to attach elastic bands across the back of the box to hold the frame in place.

Watch the video for details.
