I built this stand to avoid mounting this older, heavy TV directly to the wall. Like a swing out wall mount, this allows easy access to the back of the TV to connect things, but with this the credenza holding the stand is moved out from the wall. The pillars and bottom front panel help to hide the cables and cords connecting components.

The beam that holds the TV is doubled, being both glued and screwed together. It also is lag screwed and glued to both the front and side legs of the pillars for extra strength. The spaced apart cross beams at the top and middle allow easy access to all the features on the back of the TV.

This was sprayed with Behr Premium Plus Ultra paint and primer left over from a door project. This sprayed with one coat coverage on the bare wood and leveled out very nicely when dry. I also got excellent results spraying this paint on two of our exterior doors previously. A possible modification for this stand project would be to let the paint dry a week or so and then perhaps spray with three top coats of a matte or satin polyurethane for extra protection.

I used the Wagner Flexio 890 HVLP sprayer, thinning the latex a little with water so it would spray smooth. I didn’t pay attention to the mixing volume as much as I added water incrementally until I like how the paint flowed off the mixing stick. I really like this sprayer and have used it over the past two years or so for cabinets, trim, exterior work, and many other items.

If I built this again, I’d make the side panels on the pillars wider for better hiding of the cables from the side view and for more attachment surface to the feet for more strength.
