Create a freestanding, large entertainment center by creating two stacks of cabinets the same height on either side of one wider cabinet which serves as the base or focal point for the center. Use a countertop to span the entire unit for the main shelf, or use a glass desktop or reclaimed door in place of the countertop. Connect cabinets to one another by drilling holes through one into the next, securing with bolts and nuts. This way, you can disassemble them easily later on. Drill holes in the backs and bottoms of cabinets to allow for cables and wiring. Add a power strip inside one of the cabinets for tidy cords.
The entertainment center features a high gloss ebony finish that makes it versatile and easy to integrate in just about any decor. It would look equally beautiful in both traditional and modern homes. It has built-in boiserie and optional piers included. The overall dimensions of the Nightfly entertainment center are 59W x 20D x 71H inches. It has a compact design with two main structures. It includes space for the TV but it would also be a good idea to mount it on the wall and to use that space for storage or display.
If there is an alcove in which you are building the center, fill the space completely with cabinets to give it the look of built-ins. Arrange cabinets so there is ample space in the center for your TV. Remove cabinet doors so the cabinets look more like built-in structures. Fill the holes with putty. Use a thick slab of wood for the main shelf supporting the TV, or as support over the top of a short cabinet on which the TV rests. Paint the entire structure the same color as the walls in the room to give it that built in, been-there-for-years look.
