Entertainment Center
My wife wanted me to build a set of built-in shelves, or at least an entertainment center. Never having done anything like that from scratch before, I hemmed and hawed a bit, until she found an old one at a yard sale for $200. Good price, but it was straight out of the '70s, with rounded wood grain trim and the obligatory gray smoked glass stereo component doors and we're more the pottery barn type. So off the trim goes and on goes new poplar trim... oh but wait, that's not all! She also wants the center section dropped, new shelves added, and a whole new section added to the top! Anyway, here's how it went:
01   Before
02   Before Closeup 1
03   Before Closeup 2
04   Trim removed
07   New trim
06   New Shelves   New section
05   Rounded trim replaced
Here it is sitting in the playroom, which is a completely different project in itself... more on that later!
09   Finished
08   Crown and decorative trim added
