I just moved in my new apartment. I have no funiture. So to save money I wanted to put up shelves for my tv and ps3 instead of spending 60-100 dollars on a wall mount. I have a 32'' Vizio LCD tv. At max the tv weight 30lbs maybe less.
Do you have any suggestions on how I should go about setting this up and placement where the shelf will support the tv?
Hello YoungCollegeMan, and welcome back.
I think the shelving in your picture would work fine for just the PS3, but I would not trust those types of shelving to hold a TV weighing 20-30 pounds.
Here are some other options that might work.
HyLoft wall storage systems make the most of wasted wall space. Great for the garage, closet, basement, laundry room, shed and more. These shelving systems have patented, low profile brackets so that you can store more items without a large, infringing bracket. Each shelf can support 200 pounds. All of our products feature scratch resistant white, powder coat finish. These units can be utilized in either finished or unfinished garages, basements, attics, sheds, closets and many other spaces in your home. HyLoft wall storage units are perfect for storing large, bulky items that would otherwise be crowding valuable floor space.
The Tria Series wall shelf systems offer hassle-free shelving and cable management solutions suitable for any environment and can be used with or without a flat panel. User-friendly features like adjustable shelves and paintable, trimable covers make them customizable for any application. Tria 2 is a 2-shelf do-it-yourself solution that allows you to neatly organize components right under your flat panel without the need to run the connections through your wall.
Hello YoungCollegeMan, and welcome to the community!
I have a few ideas to get you going. You can check out this post by ChristineClaretand see if this is what you were looking to build, or, if you are familiar with SketchUp you can also check out this link for a variety of other designs to choose.
If these suggestions are not what you are looking for, please post a picture of what you have in mind.
Thank you for the response. I was more so leaning towards shleves like this (below). Just two one for the tv to sit on the other shelf for the cable box.
Love these blue shelves. Any building instructions?
