Now that's just wrong...

Ryan, I use chief architect...basically it's a simple box with some small crown moulding (sometimes referred to as bed moulding), the bottom moulding is a PM42 panel moulding, you can get both at hd, lowes, etc.

And sorry Ryan, I had to center the TV, it's a little easier on the 'puter..I'm surprised your wall-mount doesn't allow for more movement side-to-side.

Have you checked out other mounting systems? It would drive me crazy not being able to center the TV on that short wall.

How about some marble (probably out of the diy realm though)?

Ryan, you may want to consider a mantel or mantel shelf as well.

Now, think of doing this kind of detail for 1500-2500 sq.ft. remodel project(s)...


sorry for the momentary hi-jack Ryan, you'll have to take it outta my pay
