When Jason received a flat screen TV for Christmas, he knew immediately that he wanted to make a cover for it so that it would look stylish in his home. He created his own TV cover out of felt and as a nice touch, he added SMPTE-style color bars to the front. Not only that, but there’s also a pair of pockets on the back for the remote control and Netflix envelopes!

    This was a good idea of Jason. He has got with a lot of creativity to adapt his TV his home. And this clarifies at the fact is that one can change the cover over and over again if it does not like the colour any more or one has another flat equipment. Also the pockets on the back for the remote control and Netflix envelopes are a good idea.

    Good idea of jason.1th you never lose the remote controle,I hate it you come at home after and must search 1hour the remote control. 2nd one negative point of flat screens is they very dusty in short time. With the tv cover is the tv in the time saved when you not watch.
