New TV over the J-sofa


Recommended Posts

Following the installation of the recliner/theater seat post, it became apparent we were going to need the TV right across from the seats.  When we find a decent replacement for the J-sofa we will install a TV lift behind the sofa.  Until now, I built a shelf that slips over the window box.  TV is secured to the shelf so the whole thing can be put in the closet if we want to use the j-sofa bed.  It's very solid and I used a piece of 3/4" PVC down from the upper cabinet to keep the TV from tipping forward.  I also ran two HDMI cords through the upper cabinets and installed an HDMI outlet under the cabinet.  It's not the ultimate solution but it will work great for now.

Nice mod. I too had plans to remove the J sofa and install a lift tv. Instead I put a 1080p led projector in the cabinet over the theater seats and a projector screen attached to the slide trim over the J. We mostly stream or watch DVD. TV in bed room if we want local OTA/News.

This was initially planned as temp solution but we love it. Screen is 80" 16x9. Very little weight. Every night can be movie night!
