WE BUILT OUR HOME ENTERTAINMENT CENTER

entertainment center overall
We moved into a brand new house after my husband retired. The house is beautiful and spacious, but it is still builder’s grade.  So we started to improve the house one space at a time.
.
Our family room is great with a 20-feet ceiling. We have many windows on one side to let the light in. We needed something on the focal wall, where we put the TV. So I designed a home entertainment center and my husband built it. The result; we have a beautiful 8-foot wide and 7-foot high entertainment center to hold our 55-inch TV, home sound entertainment system, and many spaces for decorative things. My blue china is finally out of the cupboard and shows off in the entertainment center.
.
We did it. So can you. Believe me. My husband was sitting in a government chair for more than 35 years. His hands were softer than mine. I am self-taught designer. We must say we got big help from Lowes for cutting the boards that we bought from their lumber department.
.
The entertainment center has a base that we divided into 6 compartments, which holds DirectTV box and Sony Home Sound system and decorative nick-nacks.
The upper part is thinner than the base by 4 inches and consists of 3 bookcases connected together. The 2 side bookcases have 4 compartments and hold our blue china. The wide center bookcase has a large bottom part for our Sony big screen TV and a top part for again holding our blue china.
.
The factor that makes our entertainment center beautiful is all the trim we bought. We trimmed all the edges and attached dental crown mouldings on top. We used two tones: fluted white trim for vertical lines and red maple trim for horizontal lines.
