Another Present for Louise (my wife). This project started it's life as whole room renovation project but I think my ideas scared the Mrs and she just wanted the TV on the wall. :)

It's still a worthy project to publish as I'll need to strengthen the wall, put in some cabling for the TV data connections and work with my dependable Electrician friend for getting the elec-trickery re-routed to a new socket.

The project starts with the complete vision including a new shelving unit which has also been removed from my To-Do list :/
