Removed bedroom television

We were originally going to go with Trident's excellent idea of using a monitor (excellent because we have one sitting unused), but Mike figured since we aren't TV/movie in bed folks, we would simply remove the TV.

Knowing a future owner might want to put one in, we left the wires intact (safely closed off!).

We built a new ? not sure what you would call it, that would cover the holes from the TV wires etc., and that could incorporate the 110v plug and the light.

We replaced the mirror with a new, longer mirror (much more useful) and left the little shelf in place.

Much easier to get around the bed now, the valance isn't partly covered up, and it looks much lighter in there.

Oops, picture is sideways, sorry….

We pulled the tv out and were wondering what to do next. In the meantime, the wires are safely tucked in back and we have another small storage area. Your upgrade looks nice and clean, would have to move the smoke/CO2 detector I mounted on the side of the cabinet.

How did you finish the ceiling piece? Hard to tell from the photo whether it was covered with vinyl or paint, etc.

Glad you like our mod! We built a frame, same footprint to cover ceiling marks, but very shallow, just deep enough to put in an electrical box for the 110 plug and for the light. We moved the CO detector to the adjacent wall - ours was also on the side of the original box.
The frame is plywood, and since we couldn't find foam backed vinyl like the original, we bought vinyl that pretty well matches the ceiling and some 1/4" foam, glued them together with fabric spray glue, and then stapled the resulting padded vinyl to the frame.

We made the frame (saying 'we' loosely, DH all but the fabric cutting and gluing) from 3/8" plywood. It is in 2 pieces, the outer part and then a recessed shelf, also vinyl covered.

He attached the recessed part with screws and then put white covers on.

The tricky part is the ceiling slope.

If you need I can go and get some pictures just of that part.
