Fireplace TV Mount
Lucky for us, we have that cubby beside our fireplace so we were able to cut a small hole in the top of it so we could see what was going on up there. The stud finder really had us scratching our heads since the studs weren't consistent. It was alerting on some areas that weren't actually studs and it really helped to be able to see in there without cutting a huge hole in the wall!
I would definitely recommend that if you plan to mount your TV above your fireplace, or on any wall for that matter, know what you're dealing with. And if you don't feel comfortable with the project, hire a professional! We consulted one on this project and confirmed our plans to make sure this was an acceptable method. Know that there will not always be studs available to attach to, and a Plan B may be needed.
He also mounted a sound bar under the TV. I love this look! So much cleaner than TV stands and cables! Our big city remodel is starting to come along nicely!
