Spray and Attach Cork
In a well-ventilated area, unfurl cork along a flat, level surface, then apply spray adhesive with can held approximately 8” from the surface, moving back and forth in a slow, controlled manner. Next, place cork in position along the interior of cabinet door.
Install Mounting Bracket and TV
Hold the cabinet up to the wall along the area where the TV will be mounted. Use a stud finder to locate stud. Center the cabinet on the stud so that the mounting bracket will have a structural surface on which to be mounted. Use measuring tape to determine center point of cabinet back panel, then use drill and 1/4” drill bit to create a pilot hole through back panel and into stud.
Place heavy-duty anchors into pilot holes, securing them in place with hammer. Line up pre-drilled holes of mounting bracket with holes of anchors, then secure to wall with heavy-duty screws using screwdriver. Next, attach flat-panel TV to mounting bracket using screws and screwdriver.
Tip: To keep wires from cluttering the interior of the cabinet, use a drill and 2” paddle bit to add a hole along the back through which to drop wires behind drywall or secure to a corner.
Once the project is complete, enjoy the clean lines of the cabinet's exterior, or flip it open when you're ready to watch television or admire your child's artwork.
