Hiding Screws in an Open Painted Cabinet9/29
Part of a media cabinet that I am building consists of a 7' L x 18" H x 13" D wall-mounted open display cabinet. It will consist of 3 cabinets that will be screwed together on site and hung on a french cleat. It will be constructed of MDF and painted white. I want to secure it by screwing through the back into the wall cleat at the top and into blocking at the bottom. My question is: is there an elegant way to hide these screws? I've used thin painted screw covers in the past but they don't really look that good. Any suggestions would be welcome.
We use a profiled trim strip to cover the screw holes. 1" tall +/-. Most of the time it's a stock molding.
With the french cleat carrying the weight if can get to the top of the cabinet you can use ell brackets. Maybe a nailer below the bottom shelf to hide the lower screws.
I would use painted screws or screw caps
Countersunk screws and Fastcaps?
