Top 10 Best Examples of Satellite Dish Art

Being lucky enough to have SKY satellite TV is a real bonus in life, I just feel so lucky to have access to thousands of channels with the same old rubbish on them! But my problem is not with the poor quality TV they offer, but rather a poor amount of colours your dish can come in! Black/grey mesh and that is your lot! But I don’t want an ugly dish attached to the side of my house and it seems that I am not alone. So many people hate the boring designs that giving them a touch of paint and colour has become a real art form, so why don’t we try to discover just what is…

  6. I’m excited to discover this page. I want to to thank you for ones time just for this wonderful read!! I definitely really liked every bit of it and i also have you saved to fav to look at new things in your web site.

  7. I may even have some of it put away somewhere. I had a couple of key rings, earrings (I know I still have those–used to wear them sometimes on casual Friday at work!), quite a few stuffed toys from very small to large. You get the idea!

  8. Now all I have todo is find someone to climb a ladder to the top of the porch roof and put them on – there is no way I am climbing a ladder again in this lifetime.

  9. I love the scenery channel or Montana. My love of nature would surely shine through with either one of them. It always amazes me how creative people can be when given the chance.

  10. Some people are just too clever! Or have too much time! #8 is, of course, my favorite. #5 would give me nightmares. And #1 I love – I used to collect all kinds of smiley faces!

  11. pretty much equal as that goes. Well maybe more bad than good. ha! As I don’t watch that much tv I’m not bothered by it. yet. 😉

  12. Mine is a plain grey dish – figured one couldn’t do anything to “deface” them. However, I will take the cat decals as well as the Scenery channel or paint mine with Washington on it – the real one, not the other one on the East Coast. However, I love the painting around it – though my dish is attached to the roof of the back porch, so it sticks out too much. Hmmmm, maybe have to ponder this for a while to visualize what works for me.

  13. unfortunately no, just my tv. I don’t even get my internet satellite. I wish I did, I could call every where!

  14. I’m baaackkkk! I love the cat ones or the scenery. I have a dish now that I’m moved, but it’s the phone company’s not mine, otherwise it would get painted! 🙂

Which one did you like?
