The shelf inserts are this terrible particle board so I also purchased some birch and had it cut down to the size needed for the inserts. Right now they are in the garage going through the stain & top coat process. Hopefully tomorrow night I will have them inside the unit. Will I have a picture of the new unit? Not likely. This upcoming weekend we are going to the flea market so who knows what fabulous items I might find. So perhaps next Sunday photos. Part 2
Well, the TV was on its way out the door for the last 3-6 months. This weekend, we decided to breakdown and buy a new one. I was fine with the size we had or a 55 inch. Andy, he was fine with a 60 inch. So we left Best Buy with a 60 TV. The problem now? That 60 inch TV was not fitting into our IKEA Besta unit.
The solution? Well, I didn’t want to spend any serious cashola. And I didn’t want to make Andy wait to hook up his new baby. So originally I planned to make something that had a little industrial flair. Then I was like, duh just use a prefab industrial shelf. So we went to Home Depot and this is what we came home with.
