Hi, looking for some ideas from the NG.
I have a wall mounted TV bracket whose 'footprint' doesn't line up with my
TV. All fit well with the last TV I had on it but a new TV presents the
The shelf portion where the TV sits is basically a rectangle but the 'feet'
(those little black rubber buttons) on my TV are arranged in a tri-angle
(two in front, one in back) the back one being too far back to fit on the
shelf. It's of the same screen size and weight range as the old so I know
the bracket will carry it but the feet are just arranged differently.
I figure I will just cut a larger sized rectangle of something and bolt it
to the shelf. There are already holes in the shelf so that's not a problem.
What I'm looking for is suggestions on material. The bracket is made of
metal, color grey, and I don't want to use particle board or plywood which I
would then have to band and paint or glue up boards which would also have to
be painted so I was thinking of something plastic, maybe 1/2 inch thick that
I could just take the belt sander to the edges and the corners. Sort of
like a Plexiglas sheet but not clear; white or gray, or any color that would
blend in with the rest of the bracket. I don't want to have to take plexi
and rough it up to try to spray paint it as I don't have a sprayer and I can
never seem to get the spraycans to do a good job on things like this. If it
was just going into my shop or the garage it would already be done with
plywood but this is going into the Master Bedroom and I have already been
'briefed' by SWMBO.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
