Our TV in our bedroom was hanging in the middle of the wall with the wires exposed. I drew a simple bracket shape on one board.
Here’s a stack of rough cut brackets waiting to be sanded. I wanted the shelf to look thick, but open up so the remote works when we’re watching TV. Above shows the “door” open and the cable and DVD boxes. I routed the wires inside the wall for about 24 inches behind the shelf to behind the dresser.
We decorated the dresser for summer with sea shells, wood thrift store beach chairs, my favorite toy dump truck, a stack of beach buckets, and fresh flowers. Love the rustic look mixed between the black TV and dresser. Notice the faux mantle it’s made from scrap wood?
