Recently moved into an apartment, and setting it up. I need to hang a projector and a video game console off of a brick wall in the home.
Ideally, because it's an apartment, I don't alter the wall.
There are 2 existing screws coming out of the brick - screwed into the brick itself. There seems to be some plastic anchor supporting them. The screws are 5ft (1.5m) apart, come out about half an inch, and the "shelf" needs to come out about 12-18in (30-45cm) and support ~15lbs (~7kg) of weight at most.
Is this possible? If so, how? I have woodworking tools and patience, but not much know-how. My intention here is to make a make-shift shelf cutting up wood and hanging it however I can. Alternatively, happy to buy something if I can find shelving with mounts exactly 5ft apart.
If not, what's another no- or low-damage way of hanging such a shelf (minimum 12in depth, 3ft wide)?
