If you’re like me, you’d rather spend a little extra time than a lot of extra money on household items–especially decor. Is a tv cover a necessity? Certainly not. Is it a project that gives you bragging rights with guests? Absolutely.

The tv cover on the left is from Pottery Barn and costs $599!

The beautiful, sliding barn door cover on the right is a DIY, and the materials will cost about $75. Check here for the full tutorial by Kristen Duke Photography.
