Floating Lack Media Unit (Inspired by Taylor’s Idea)

Floating Lack Media Unit

Materials: BRODER System and LACK Wall Shelves.

Description: Starting with Taylor’s idea. (Thank You Taylor! :) )

I made this wall system for TV, media center and/or Cd’s/DVDs/books.

Use 2 Broder Wall Post 99 cm or, if the IKEA store does not have it, buy the same one with 204 cm length and cut it.

Prepare the holes for wall plug enlarging that ones in the Broder post. The frontal one will be large in order to use a screw driver.

Fix with 4 wall plug (8 mm); the traction load for each one is about 35 kg, I think that they are enough.

Check that the shelves are horizontal; mount all shelves in the way that you need.

    I am looking for 4 Broder 23-inch front wall brackets. Do you have any for sale?

    This could also be done with the broder suspension rail and wall upright in order to avoid having to drill holes in the broder post and to get a more flush (3/4 in) fit to the wall.

    You can also mount a lack shelf parallel to the wall so as to create a wall panel to hide the broder posts and cables between the shelves using the broder center mount brackets.

    I’m trying to work out a method for hanging the tv right on the broder posts or suspension rail – anyone have any ideas?
