May Before – Entertainment Center

Oh man, I wanted to have this post up 2 days ago, but I’ve been working like crazy and haven’t had the time. My schedule the past couple days has been wake up, get ready for work, work, work late, dinner, work from home (company laptop), and then go to bed…and it sucks! I don’t think it’s a coincidence that I now have a massive headache. My first big presentation is tomorrow at noon (wish me luck!) and then I have 2 more next week. Hopefully everything will be back to normal after that.
Look what we finally finished!

Yep, almost 4 months after putting together the TV stand everything is bought and assembled! I think it looks so much better than the original built-in.

And it takes up a lot less space – that sucker was DEEP (as demonstrated by me in the picture).
Of course it looks WAY better than the cheap TV stand from my college apartment days.

So, now we have this:

Which brings me to my May project – styling this bad boy!
The Grand Plan:
Fill the shelves (where’s Emily Henderson when you need her?!)
New knobs for the drawers (probably glass because I’m obsessed with glass knobs)
Beadboard backing? I really want to cover up those outlets plus I think it’ll make the piece look less modern…we’ll see.

Alright, that’s the plan – we’ll review at the end of the month!

Shine Your Light


  1. What a great unit! Looks wonderful and can't wait to see how you fill it up. Good luck on your presentations :)

  2. Wow, what an awesome unit and how cute are you sitting in there :)
    Love everything about it. P.S Hoped you rocked out that presentation! Mandy

  3. This looks fabulous! And I love that picture with you in the old one - how funny!! :)

    I'm excited to see how it turns out next month too! I think beadboard would look great! I think that having something behind the TV will bring the whole entertainment center together even more!

    You're doing so great with all these projects! Keep up the good work! :)

  5. Well done! Can't way to see the way you style them.

  6. Dang! That sucker before was HUGEGANTIC! Who thinks of these things? Must have been designed for one of those ginormous original flat screens that were 12" deep because they had to hold all the components and TV like thingys. Dang. I loveeee the new one! It will be so fantastic once you have it all set up! Good work!

    I also love all this white furniture and upgrading going on around the Junk House! Woot!!

    Hope that work presentation is going well!!

  7. Sam, so glad you linked this up! Can't wait to see what you do with all those shelves - I find them so challenging to style! Your new entertainment center is beautiful!! I have a tv stand like the one from your college days in my bedroom and it's gotta go! Good luck with this project and also your presentations and busy work schedule!
