Found a great holiday deal on a flat screen for the shop. Love to have sports on while I “Putz” around on the weekends plus it has a computer input so I can pull up my favorite LJ blog and have photos large enough to see while I “take inspiration” (read as imitate) your fine work.
Anyway, the cheapest wall mount I could find rated for a TV this size was 86 bucks after tax. I was disgusted to have to pay that much for a little bent steel and some screws… then it hit me… FRENCH CLEATS. Took 10 minutes and four 1/4 – 32 screws from the old coffee can and the TV is on the wall and much sturdier than the TVs in the house with the store bought brackets. Extra bonus, it is much closer to the wall than with the brackets as well.
Gotta love the French Cleats! Simple, Cheap and you can hang the family car from them.
