Living room entertainment area

Ok, so...we have somewhat of a big living room, it is rectangular in shape and quite long. After moving our furnitures and TV (entertainment center) around quite a few times, we just could not find the right placements for anything that made watching TV comfortable... it always seems like our TV is miles away, so we came up with a solution.....

We decided to build out the wall and put a mantel across the whole wall then mount the TV. Its has been quite a journey since the His vs Her styles are quite different. After browsing around the internet trying to get some ideas, finally we found one that the both of us like.


We made some modifications from the inspiration and tweaked it to meet out needs. Example: we desperately need a place to store our Yamaha Keyboard etc etc...
We are planing on putting a electric fireplace on top of the bottom drawer (keyboard drawer). Hopefully before next winter.

The TV is mounted on a articulating mount . . . so we can watch TV while eating dinner (if we so desire).

Material:  Pinewood and Pine boards
Color:  Minwax Ebony Woodstain (black semi-gloss paint would have done the trick too)
Protective coat:  Beeswax for a good shine.
Drawer Handles:  Ikea LANSA

Our product!
