TV stands work well to hold your electronics, but most of them aren’t really nice to look at.

My TV sits on top of my dresser, but I’ve always wished that I had the time to build an awesome wall mount instead. While that definitely isn’t going down anytime soon because of my epic laziness, this guy made it happen without even spending a ton of money.

Imgur user cwdobbins took the idea behind floating beds and used it to craft a seriously cool wall mount in his living room. The best part is that he did it all for under $200!

This space was transformed into entertainment heaven after he was through with it!

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBM_BTF’); });

First, he bolted a piece of wood to the wall, creating a French cleat that would safely support the combined weight of the floating wall and TV.

Then he hammered and welded a steel frame together out of angle iron.

He wanted a cool backlight, so he installed LED strips onto the frame.

Next, he cut some wood boards to size and sanded them before staining each piece.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCI1_BTF’); });

After applying some polyurethane finish, he got to work on screwing the boards into the frame.

When all the boards were attached, it was finally time to hang this beauty up.

It was too heavy for him to lift on his own, but his transmission jack turned out to be perfect for the job.

In order to keep his TV’s electronic accessories off of the floor, he welded more angle iron into the shape of a box.

Then he created a smaller mount for the case that would be directly attached to the wall.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCI2_BTF’); });

Lag bolts assured that it would be nice and sturdy.

Then came the fun part — finally mounting the TV!

The only thing left to do was complete the electronics case, so the crafter cut shelving boards to enclose the box.

And for the front door of the box, he installed some hinges.

After staining all the pieces, he screwed that bad boy into the mount.

After plugging everything in, he was good to go!

Not only does he have an amazing TV wall now, but his living room looks so much classier!

I am so completely jealous of him.

Something tells me that cwdobbins is going to have a lot of trouble ever leaving that room. If you’re dying for your own floating TV wall, you can find the full instructions here.
