Moved from someone else's intro thread to here. You will likely get better help this way.
No-one would see your question where you put it.

Measure the cabinet over the refrigerator and build that. It should be big enough. If not, make it bigger.
It's a box with doors. If you want doors. Otherwise it's a box.

Try giving a few more details about what you want. Are you looking at something to set beside a TV, hide behind a TV, set a TV on, put in closet, tall, short, use as a window seat, mount on the wall, etc.

I built one years ago with a vertical center opening that housed my xbox 360, on either side of that was an opening for controllers...see the artist rendering below. It was a pretty ugly box. I stained the entire outside and painted the interior black.
