Wallmount my 26" Vizio


I have recently purchased a 26" Vizio LCD HDTV. I want to put it on my wall. However, the studs are not in the center of the wall which poses a problem. I want to attach a piece of plywood to the wall (by screwing into the studs) and paint it to match the wall then mount the TV to the new piece of plywood. I must do this because I can not go into the wall and apply wood inside the walls. Any suggestions on how to do this and what type of screws and toggle bolts or whatever else I would need to purchase to make this job a success? Thanks in advance to whoever can help me!!!

Molly's and the proper mounting kit. a 26" set is not that heavy. If this is a rental unit, forget about it.

Most wall kits have some side to side adjustment. I would try to get at least one screw into a stud.
