Mounting Flat Panel T.V. on valance?

Well i finally removed the beast of a tube t.v. mount and am now in the process of installing the 32" flat panel T.V. across from the couch. only problem is there's no room to mount on the wall except on the valance between the windows. (also want to remove it when not in use) still need to build a entertainment cabinet the width of the windows and remove the old one pictured. thinking maybe use a piece of matching trim board to mount the t.v. arm to, then bolt to the valance. that way i could use the floor or new cabinet to help support the weight. thought about the fridge wall, but doesn't seem thick enough to hold the t.v. Any ideas? thanks

If that is the LCD mount I see between the windows and you used at least a couple long bolts or screws into a metal stud between the windows, it should support LCD which these days are lighter.
The mount may have a lock on it to keep LCD in place or use budgie cord to keep from moving around.
Good job so far show pic's when base cabinet done.

Dodge.... the large square plate can remain attached to the back of the TV. That will separate from the articulating arm by removing a single retainer screw. The arm can then collapse flat against the wall for travel, while the TV can be laid face down on the bed. Even with the plate attached a new 32 flat TV will only weigh about 8 Lbs. Easy to detach and handle.
(Our 42 flat only weighs 12 Lb.)
