The world has moved into the age of the flat screen TV.
The 31 inch beast of a 200lb TV we got for our wedding, finally bit it this spring, and I came to the realization I would have to get a flat screen.
One huge advantage of these is that you can quite easily purchase a wall mount, and hang the TV on the wall, eliminating the need for that bulky entertainment center (especially in a smaller room)
There is however one small problem. Unless you have a cable outlet, and power out let half way up your wall, All the wires are going to show beneath your newly hung masterpiece.
You will need:
small nails, 1 inch nails,
square posts (they are in the dowel section)
and a thin piece of wood for the front
total cost: under $20
|Note: Old laundry detergent covers work great as paint cans for the kids.|
|Here the channel is off the wall for referance.|
|Look carefully, the channel is there!|
Congratulations, you are done, and your living room is now the envy of the local book club.
