Materials: BESTA

Description: I wanted to fit my TV into the Besta cabinet but the Besta has a divider in the middle of it.

I sawed the divider in half (before installing, of course) so the cabinet is still stable – the top of the unit won’t sag over time.

To hold the TV  in place, I repurposed some of the left over hardware.  The TV sits between this screw and this shelf bracket.

Oh look, you can see where I misdrilled a hole..

In the photo below, you can see the metal parts hold the TV in position – there are metal parts on the underside of the top shelf too (they are harder to see).  I used the screws behind the tv and the shelf brackets in front of the tv.  The shelf brackets are easy to pull in and out if I need to get TV out.  They also look better than the screws.
