DIY Installation: Flat Panel TV With Hidden Wiring

DIY Installation: Flat Panel TV With Hidden Wiring

John sent Apartment Therapy his fantastic "Before and After: How To Redo a Chandelier" last year and now he has started his own blog about the renovation of his SF Victorian, moving onto a series of high tech improvements for his flat panel and high speed internet...

A recent series of posts show how he did a DIY installation on a flat panel with hidden wires. He says, "All in all, this is pretty simple task that the average do-it-yourselfer can handle. As I said before, its a great one to try for your first time as its simple to repair if you make a mistake. I would hate to throw away a few hundreds dollars when this job can easily be tackled. A flat panel TV costs enough, save your money!"

John also makes a good recommendation for fellow DIY'ers out there on a budget, mentioning hififorless.com for his selection of component video, HDMI, and speaker cable; every component was easy to install and now he has an attractive component video and HDMI plate for flat panel hookup without any visible wires. A followup update walks us through a similar how-to with installing high speed internet in an older building with some Cat 6 and a hidden Mac Mini. For someone living in an old fashioned building, John is definitely forward thinking fella. Cheers to him for these great posts.

Check out his complete post on the project right here at San Francisco Victorian.
