Grundtal pivoting TV mount

Materials: Grundtal Shelf, Billy Bookcase

I wanted a way to float my TV in the air, at an adjustable angle. I also needed to not make any holes in the walls of my rented flat. I wanted a pivoting-telescoping mount, one that would allow me to put the TV out of the way when (for example) flying model helicopters.

A Sunday spent prowling Ikea for inspiration saw me buying a Grundtal stainless steel kitchen shelf.

I then proceeded to assemble it very wrongly indeed.
