Drew Barrymore Shared on Instagram Her Brilliant Hack for Hiding a TV
On Instagram this weekend, Drew Barrymore shared a common problem so many Netflix-obsessed design-lovers have: how to hide a tv screen. Just like us, Barrymore wants to binge-watch Gilmore Girls or The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel whenever she pleases, yet she doesn't want to be greeted by an unsightly plasma screen when she steps into her beautiful, boho-style bedroom. To solve this design dilemma, Barrymore got creative and found a DIY solution we're tempted to steal for our own homes.
The clever DIY solution to a tv that didn't fit with Barrymore's feminine bedroom? In the caption on the post, Barrymore explains: "so I went on Etsy ordered a hanging piece of art and did a home hack." The actress chose a macrame wall hanging that perfectly matches her bohemian aesthetic. When she's done watching tv, the screen is easily hidden behind the piece of art.
