Our TV in the master bedroom is hanging with a flatscreentvhangingthingamugjigs. Problem was the TV seemed to float on the wall, the wires, and the cable box set too low to change channels comfortably.
Solution; make a shelf to hang directly under the TV so it looks like the TV is sitting on the shelf. I hid the cable box inside the shelf and the wires only had inches to hide behind the wall.

    How did you attach it to the wall? Hardware used? Denise Breland, MS

    • I planned to use "D" type hooks but they didn't hold the shelf close to the wall. So plan b was used, I drilled through the front in the corners where to double brackets are into the studs. Another idea would be to hang a long narrow board on the wall then set the shelf of the board and drill down into the board from the top. Hope these ideas help. Let me know.
