Woman sick of her black TV gives it a bling makeover with £10 rhinestones and is instantly branded an icon

IF you ask us – there's no such thing as too much sparkle.

We've seen £2 glitter stairs, stunning sparkly walls and, based on this woman's DIY project, rhinestone TELLYS could become the next big interior trend.

Posting on the Facebook group Mrs Hinch Made Me Do It, the woman explained how she was fed up with her plain black TV.

Instead of splashing out on a new TV in a different colour, the DIY fan thought she'd make it match her decor by sticking some rhinestones around the edge.

She wrote: "Does everyone else hate that most TVs are black?

"My little project today, photos and videos don't do it justice, its got a rainbow dazzle look when I turn my bedroom light on."


Using a £10 sheet of rhinestone she bought off Amazon, the woman cut it into strips and then glued it so they framed the screen.

What's more, it only took one sheet – containing 1400 rhinestones – to complete the bling makeover and the leftovers can be used on phone cases, car interiors and general home decoration.

The post has racked up almost 300 "likes" and members of the group branded her an "icon".

Tagging a mate in the comments, another added: "How lush is this."

Meanwhile, a third gushed: "I love it!!"

However, others joked that it wouldn't go down well with their partners.
