Did you know that you don’t have to purchase an expensive frame TV to display art??? Although my dream TV would be the Samsung Frame TV, I’ve been long displaying art on our old NON-smart TV, and I use FREE art!!! How do you make your TV display art for free, you ask? Well, you’ve come to the right place!
I love to stream free art on my TV for holidays, seasons, or just to see beautiful images. It makes that big old black box seem so much more cozy! It sets such a calming tone when I’m by myself at home cleaning and doing things around the house. Streaming free art is also a great way to display beautiful images when you are entertaining!
First of all, if you have a smart TV (one that will stream the internet), you can skip this paragraph. But if you do not have a smart TV, you would need to purchase a streaming device. These can be a Roku, Firestick or other device that allows a TV to stream the internet. Be sure to check which connection the device comes with, and be sure that your TV has that connection! This is typically a HDMI cable, or a USB port. These devices start at about $27.99, and are often on sale! There are many free TV apps that you can use once you have a streaming device, so you can get a lot of entertainment at little cost!
Now You’re Ready To Stream Art!
Once you have your streaming device set up and connected, you can search for apps for TV art. There are many paid ones out there, but there are sources that will make your TV display art for free! If you have Roku device, you can use the app Art Stream for free. My favorite way is to go to YouTube. Navigate to the YouTube app, and search whatever kind of art you are wanting to display.
For example, if you wanted to see winter images, search “free winter TV art”. My absolute favorite kind of art to display is vintage artwork. There are so many amazing pieces of art! This is one of my favorites for winter!
You can search for artwork that matches your decor, like Mid-Century Modern, Farmhouse, traditional, classic, or vintage. You can search by your favorite genre, or kind of artwork, like “free impressionist art for TV”, or “free abstract art for TV”. There is artwork for holidays and seasons, and some even include music!!! I have created a playlist on YouTube of my most favorite free TV art here! Feel free to save it, or use it to create your own playlist!
