We have a special needs little guy who would stand in front of the TV, regardless of you recommend he does not be a door. So we put the TV on the wall, but I really don't like looking at the cords, and after covering them up, realized I didn't like looking at the wire cover. And the dust that would collect on the dark console - UGH!

It's hard to find decent corner-of-the-room furniture like this. Gotta make your own!

Well done!
