picture framing my flatscreen tv?


I just got a 60" lcd tv. My wife wants me to frame it like a picture. I've got pics of what I want it to look like but was looking for ideas of how to secure it to the wall, but still be able to take it off easily if I need to access the back to add more cables. Has anyone done this or have a good method?

Most times those are hung on a bracket that tips forward at the top----Have you got any ideas?

Is perfectly flat against the wall O,K.?

Will cords and plugs clear the wall if you just hang it flat and don't use a bracket?

I'm going to get a mount that puts the tv as flat against the wall as possible. I'm thinking now that I can put a couple angle brackets on the wall and have a pocket in the back of the frame that will slide onto the angle brackets. This way I can just slide the frame straight off if I need to access the cables in back.

Sorry===I thought the t.v. was the question----The easiest thing to hand the box/frame--is a long wood cleat---with a 45* bevel cut into the top---gap to the wall -pointed part out--
Then add a matching 45 beveled strip to the inside top of the box/frame--

That box will simply hang off the cleat--nice and tight and lift off easily.
