Simply Build It

If there is a gap between the back of the plasterboard and the blocks you really need to cut out a section of the plasterboard and fix timber to the wall using 3inch number 8 screws and red wall plugs (see our fixing to masonry project). The TV brackets can then be fixed to the timbers. Sometimes its as easy to cut out a section of board and fix a timber, say 9 inch x 1 inch to the wall to a length = to the distance between the brackets. The brackets are then fixed to the timber and the timber is decorated to match the wall. You may find that a timber 1.25 or 1.5 inches thick is required for the face of the timber to be flush with the face of the plasterboard when its fixed.
