We’ve been redecorating our living room for the last couple of weeks. It all started when Spencer decided to mount the television on the wall and somehow snowballed from there. We found ourselves needing something to hold our gaming console and receiver. In our multiple trips to Ikea (seven total) we couldn’t find anything we liked. We decided we wanted to put in a mantel but, being on a budget, it was difficult to find one for less than 300 bucks… So we chose to build one instead!
We used plywood and 2″x4″s to build the frame and covered it with recycled fence pickets. I love the way it turned out. Old and worn. Lovely.
It wouldn’t be complete without…
A SECRET COMPARTMENT!
