Entertainment Center Build

Submitted by jpeters.us on Wed, 10/26/2011 - 09:04

I have always loved the entertainment center from Pottery Barn. When I saw that the sale price was still $900, I knew my husband and I could build it for way cheaper. This took about a week (with a lot of breaks) and the total cost was around $250. I think the biggest expense was the all the knobs, but I feel like they make the piece!

It looks great!! My OCD is totally soothed by your perfectly spaced faux drawer fronts!! From looking closer at your pic I can see that you made all doors instead of drawers and doors. I want to do the same. It also looks like you used a different type of hinge than suggested. Any reason for that? Do you have shelves in all 4 spaces? Would you mind adding a few more detailed pictures, maybe with your doors open? Or just giving some more details to what you did differently would help.
