james has this awesome idea for mounting your television set on float mode. also included are shelves for home theatre peripherals neatly tucked under. i love its clutter-free good looks and how amazingly space saving it is.
“since the wall i wanted to mount my tv to is only a 1” drywall, it would not hold up my tv. therefore, i devised a way to use the ikea stolmen wardrobe system to hold my tv. very simple and an awesome way to remove the clutter of cables to/from the tv to peripherals.
the tv is a 32″ lcd tv and i used this peerless smart mount(pic). the rear plate of the mount is supposed to be attached to a wall but since my wall won’t support the weight of the tv, i chose to use the stolmen rails. the rear plate is attached to the two rails by 6 1/4″x2″ hex bolts. if you look at the picture of the tv mount, there are also two vertical pieces; those are screwed into the back of the
tv. then you just hook the two vertical rails to the rear plate. real simple, very sturdy, and looks great!”
taking a cue from here, you can easily build an entire home theatre display unit from the stolmen series. best thing is, simply add more shelves and poles if your set grows.
