Mounting a TV "IN" a wall
I am trying to mount a TV in a wall between my kitchen and my living room so that I can watch the TV in both rooms by spinning the TV. My plan is to have a picture mounted on the back side of the TV to cover up any wires. The wall is made out of plaster and might be load bearing. I dont have any experience with plaster walls. Are there studs in plaster walls? will I be able to frame in this section? What should I use to rotate the TV in the middle? Will the wall support 75 pounds or so? Any help or suggestions and ideas I would really appreciate. Thanks, Dave

Yes, there will be studs in the plaster wall. If you don't know if the wall is load bearing or not, you had probably better hire the job out. IMO, you don't want to take on that big of a project without knowing exactly what you are doing.
