Altering Our Entertainment Center

It was time for our little 32' TV to be replaced.  I plan to move it to the upstairs bedroom.

Hubby wanted a 55" set for the living room.  Only problem is our entertainment center only had room for a 32" set. And it is so large and heavy there is no way the two of us could get it out of the house to buy a new one.  Plus it is really sturdy.

Our little 32" set

I forgot to take a before picture.  Our unit was similar to this one except we had glass doors on the left side.  The first thing I did was to remove the doors and all the shelves.

Next I measured and sawed out 3/4's of the center wooden divider.  Leaving enough of the divider to hold the DVRs on a shelf near the top.  Then I painted the entire piece to match the wall color. And added gray to the front trim.  I can't believe all cords that were back there.  The new Samsung TV only needed one wire for their One Connect.  It made hooking everything up super easy and took just a couple of minutes.

All the changes to this unit made it feel like a totally different piece.

Wow, this new set is huge.  Guess we finally made it into the new world of electronics.

Yep, this is big enough fo us. Hubby should love watching the games on this one.

Happy Decorating!
