I posted this photo on instagram late last week:
I have a new dinner solution that I can’t wait to share with you! – but that’s not what got most attention in the photo. Instead, there were lots of questions about the ipad mounted in the background.
I have to admit that this was 100% Ryan’s idea. He is good at ideas. I wasn’t so sure about drilling into the beadboard and maybe don’t love how it looks, but sometimes function trumps form.
And in this case, it is super functional. Now that the ipad is in the kitchen, it gets used all the time. I use it for recipes, looking up things when they pop into my mind while washing dishes, perusing pinterest, playing music on our wireless sound system.
Pop the ipad into this ipad mounting case and it attaches to the mounting bracket.
A couple of great things about this setup:
1. It is not bulky. When the wall mount is folded flat against the wall, it’s very low profile.
2. The ipad can be tilted up or down, mounted vertically or horizontally and the arm pulls in and out for whatever angle you prefer.
3. Having an ipad off the counter, but still within reach is super convenient. We had no idea how much we would use it.
So there you go, my instagram question-askers. That’s how we mounted the ipad.
