Entertainment Center

We recently moved into a new house and we had this ginormous alcove (8ft tall by 8feet 8 inches wide and 2 feet deep) that was just sitting lonely, awaiting a transformation!  I talked my husband into creating an entertainment center for me so that I had shelves to display pictures of my family and friends and a place for the tv to sit up high so that my toddler's fingerprints would stay off of it! 

We used prefab kitchen cabinets that we purchased at Home Depot...

Placed them into the alcove, and built bookshelves and a unit to surround our television.

My husband put cabinet lighting in too (they are not mounted to the top of the shelves yet, but you get the idea!)

My husband got the AWESOME idea to put hinges on the faux cabinet in front.... we built a shelf inside and put our dvd and dvr inside of it.  We open it when we are watching TV and close it when not in use so little fingers are not playing with the electronics!

Here it is once I painted it!
Isn't it beautiful!?!  I still need to do the moulding at the bottom and add a picture with the cabinet doors too!
