Make it a focal point: instead of finding ways to disguise your thermostat try making it a focal point!  Add shelving around the thermostat to add décor pieces and jazz up the area around it .  Adding pieces of décor can keep eyes away from an outdated thermostat drawing less attention to the eyesore and redirecting attention to the décor.
