Picture of Wall mount your Wii for next to nothing.
After the installation of my new wall mount LCD things were great.  That was before my son took over the basement TV playing COD MW2, and my daughter wanted to use her Wii at the same time......

Step 1: Mess = Bad

Picture of Mess = Bad

Here is the mess, with cables hanging.   Her decorations are hopelessly displaced on one side.   The wife is not happy.  This is not good.  She has this thing about balance.  Everything has to be perfectly symmetrical with her.   With her Yin and Yang out of equilibrium, there is no time to waste.

Step 2: Materials and tools

The Wii not being very heavy, and rather slim, a sling using cable ties will do the trick.  You will need the type with the screw mounting hole tabs.  You can pick up a pack at the "L" store or the "HD" store for around $2.

1 package cable ties (with screw mounting hole tabs)
2 mounting screws with matching Threaded Drywall Anchors

1 Wire cutter (or Heavy duty scissors)
1 Screwdriver for mounting screws
Stud Finder (optional)
Level (optional)

Step 3: Where to mount?

Picture of Where to mount?
When it came time to determining mounting options, it became obvious that only a wall mount system would work.  Running the wires through the wall would have been a problem with that Wii sensor bar thingy.  The power and the RF audio connections where already in place behind the TV.  A search on the web turned up a possible solution done in clear lexan for around $30 with shipping.  Very nice, but I needed a fix now, not next week.

1) Hold the unit up by hand to determine a suitable mounting position.
2) Make sure there is enough clearance for the cable connections.
3) Make sure there is enough clearance around the back and bottom air vents.
4) When you are happy with the position mark the two bottom corners with masking tape.
5) Pour the wife a glass of wine and have her approve mounting selection (optional).
6) Remove TV from Wall and place it out of the way (be careful).  Its easier with two people, although I was able to do it myself.

I just finished setting up  a Wii and a 24" TV for my son.

I used the following:

1x 24" TV
1x Wii
1x CS-51951: Cabstone EasyFix UltraSlim tv ophæng, 17 til 70"
1x ES-WII180145: Eholms ophæng til Nintendo® Wii
1x cable cover

This is the result :-)

I assume its still at reach to put game discs in? it doesn't look like you have the hardrive mod on it to hide it further

If you do have your wii with the hard drive mod, though, you could build a similar sling for the hard drive. Or, if it's light enough, some good velcro tape on the drive and wii.
 From the looks of the pictures, it's possible to reach the front of the wii on the left side of the TV. 
So unless the side of your TV isn't open like shown, there should be no problem ;)
