And somehow, despite having the wrong tools, materials, and no decent workspace, I managed to do it without cutting my hand off.
I find the constant sports ticker extremely distracting and it drives me nuts. Do we really need to know that a basketball game that will eventually end in a total of 200 points is now at 6-4? No, we don’t. In the past, I’ve taped up a big piece of cardboard across the bottom of the TV, but I didn’t want to go that route. So I took an extra piece of the toe kick left over from our kitchen remodel, and cut some notched blocks to hold it. It works great, it’s the perfect height, and it can easily be removed for non-sports TV. And best of all, it doesn’t block the remote sensor. Next step may be to paint it black.
