Picture of DIY Entertainment Center

This is my first instructable, hope to share more.

Wanted to put a flat screen in my office, had three bookcases and thought they would just fit together and make an entertainment center. But - they didn’t! The TV was actually too big to fit between all the pieces with them butted up together. I came up with a way for only $20 bucks to make the TV fit and turn the cases into one Entertainment Center.

In my head these three cheap pieces would just fit together perfectly, as usual my head was off with the measurements. The TV was just a little too big. I didn't want to blow another $100 minimum on an entertainment center so I spaced out the cabinets as they would need to be to make the TV fit.


Clever way around a sticky problem...!
