LinkStuff – TV Mount Edition

As I mentioned recently, I bought a flat screen tv.  I also picked up a articulating wall mount, which allows the tv to be moved around.  I needed it because I wanted to put the tv in a corner.  It ended up being a minor construction project since the plate which you attach to the wall was too short to cross two studs.  I built a frame which you can see in the picture.  It was a bit of work, but after it was done – attaching the tv mount and tv was a piece of cake.  Of course I had to do one extra Home Depot run to buy attaching bolts.  The ones that came with the mount were for a concrete wall.  Who has concrete walls?

The small pieces of tape indicate the studs

“Who has concrete walls?”

Think highrise condo. There are more than a few being built these days… If you’re attaching this to drywall with studs you’re probably using toggle bolts with their own hardware included.
