Two Great DIY Floating Wall Ideas

Two Great DIY Floating Wall Ideas

Here are two inspiring DIY projects created by AVForums member "SparksCW" for his bedroom that use a 9mm MDF for a floating LED back lit headboard with a dimmer feature, alongside an opposite facing flat screen wall unit that holds and hides components. The first is simply a floating wallpaper decorated headboard with IKEA Dioder lighting...

But the opposite setup is a very impressive example of DIY know-how, (SparksCW is an electrician by trade), a floating wall to hold his Samsung 40" 1080P, a XBox 360, and a Sony home cinema system. Originally he planned to cover the whole wall unit with the same wallpaper on the headboard, but decided the pattern was too ornate and changed over to an eye catching green.

SparksCW has posted more photos and details of both projects over at the AVForums board. We think both headboard and bedroom media center projects resulted in the perfect blend of decor and tech, and all for a fairly affordable cost (about $90 for the headboard).
