Here is my idea…I will post some of my previously build projects so you all can see what kind of work I have done and where my current skill level is at. Unfortunetally, I haven’t kept a good digital photo record of all my past projects (including some that I felt turned out really well), so I guess I’ll just post what I have.
This project was done about a year or so ago. I purchased a flat-panel television for our bedroom and decided I wanted it hanging on the wall. The problem was I wanted my dvd player and cable box in very close proximity to the television. So, being unable to find a store-bought solution, I decided to build this shelf.
With the weight of the tv and the components, I thought better of having the shelf sitting on the brackets and instead decided to have the shelf hanging from the brackets. This was different than anything I had done in the past, but I think the design turned out okay. The wood is the very cheap, very knotty whiteboard you can pick up at lowes. You see, another problem I have is that I do not have a good store to purchase my wood from here in Montgomery, AL, so I’m pretty much left with Lowes and Home Depot…
Anyhow, I used a pickling stain to help it to “blend” with the wall (my wifes idea).
