TV stands work well to hold your electronics, but most of them aren’t really nice to look at.

My TV sits on top of my dresser, but I’ve always wished that I had the time to build an awesome wall mount instead. While that definitely isn’t going down anytime soon because of my epic laziness, this guy made it happen without even spending a ton of money.
