DIY Living Room Media Shelves –
Our precious media center. It’s not much to look a, but it’s all we have. We bought a flat screen tv with the intention of mounting it to the wall, but as you can see from our before photo that did happen.
Since we didn’t follow through with our master plan, we decided to find a new direction and that’s when we were inspired to do this (see after photo).
We finally mounted the tv and added shelving so we had a place for electronics and accessories that we wanted to display. And, no, the pillows are not supporting the bottom shelf. I know it looks like they are, but I swear that shelf is bolted in with a chain and screw.
I couldn’t believe how much it opened up our living room! Yes, our media center before was sad and dull but it didn’t take up much room. That’s why we were so surprised that this shelf system made us react that way.
We added baskets so we could hide DVDs and CDs. Some day we may tackle that project, but for now we are happy with our media center completion.
You should try it too!
