Expedit Media Center for flat TV

Materials: Expedit 5×1 (Which I had before I started), Lillträsk Kitchenworkbench, Capita legs, Expedit door, SMS Flatscreen mount, Ikea Led-lights Dioder, Furniture angle braces

Description: I wanted to get my TV up on the wall, without making holes in the wall.
So I came up with this idea on the cheap side.
It’s pretty solid since I used a solid benchtop from the Kitchen department.

Making sure the flatscreen mount is centered.

The workbench is fastened with screws and furniture angle braces, through the remaining “walls” of the centerpart of the Expedit-shelf.

The two walls on either side was not mounted when I mounted the Expedit.

Wires through a hole to hide them.

Some plastic cabelways to tidy things up.
Colored Led-stripes are mounted behind the TV with zipties on the flatscreen mount.
White Led-stripes are mounted on the backside of the Expedit.
