If you have a twenty year old TV wall unit, chances are it’s a “beast”! It wasn’t that long ago that TVs were nearly as deep as refrigerators and you needed three burly guys to carry one upstairs. In other words, it may be time for a new entertainment center to go with your new streamlined TV. Check out the following tips for sourcing a wall unit that is perfect for you.
You would think being a Florida girl does not help make me an authority on fireplaces! However we were approached by a lovely local couple who’s dream was exactly that. Although, a South Florida winter can sometimes dip, wait for it, into the THIRTIES (Fahrenheit), they simply wanted a fireplace to add a different type of warmth to their family room (overlooking the pool).
Before the entertainment center was pickled oak and short!
We helped them select an electric fireplace insert, the plug in and your done type. Except we weren’t done. We needed to design and build a custom cabinet masterpiece around it to show it off as well as house their flat screen TV. Our design concept was to make it look as much like a traditional fireplace mantle as possible using wood stained in warm tones to complement the cozy room in which it resides. See the final product above. They love it!
