Hi guys, I've been wanting to change my AV furniture and change the layout of my front room for some time now as despite being a large room it felt the current layout was too cramped. I was bored of my current TV bench and looked to here for some inspiration on some false chimney builds as I wanted to wall mount my TV. But came across the floating wall idea! There were some brilliant projects on here but as I'm a renter I didn't really want to attach a false wall to the living room wall as I'd only have to take it down when we move out! So after a lot more thought I decided to keep my existing TV bench but pimp it up a bit! So this is what I did: My old lounge layout [/IMG] For my new plan to work the fire place had to go! (hush don't tell my landlord!) [/IMG] Some paint and filler. [/URL][/IMG] My re-stained and empty TV bench. [/URL][/IMG] I screwed in a batton to the TV bench's base and added some MDF panels. [/URL][/IMG] Next I bolted on some 4 x 2 to the back. [/URL][/IMG] Then I bolted on the wall bracket. [/URL][/IMG] Time to sort out the wires and leads! [/URL][/IMG] Time to hang the TV! (please don't fall off!) [/URL][/IMG] TA-DA! My little floating wall which really dose float! [/URL][/IMG] Let there be light! (and no electric shocks please!) [/URL][/IMG] [/URL][/IMG] Time to play! [/URL][/IMG] [/URL][/IMG] [/URL][/IMG] But what should I play? [/URL][/IMG] [/URL][/IMG] The end! (at least for now!) [/URL][/IMG] All in all this project took me 3 long days over Easter to do and about 2 weeks for my body to recover from the shock of doing so much manual labour! (I usually sit in an office for 9 hours a day! OK maybe 5 to 6 hours a day! Well I am the boss!) I know my floater is nothing new and we've all seen it before and if I wasn't a renter I would have done something totally different (1st thing being carpet in the skip) but out of my circle of friends no one has seen anything like it! Oh and the room has really opened up a treat and feels so much bigger now! Thanks for looking guys! Looking forward to your, hopefully, kind comments! cheers al.
