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.
