For a reminder, here's the room before the TV was mounted:
Here is the TV mounted. You can see I needed something there to cover up where we routed the wires back into the room so that we didn't have to relocate the outlet. I didn't want anything too intrusive, and I couldn't find a piece at a thrift store that I wanted to tackle. That is where Pinterest comes in. A couple of weeks ago I had pinned this idea about staining crates and turning them into a furniture piece. You can see the original blog with a crate tutorial HERE. I decided to do my own simpler variation.
Here they are stacked under the TV and covering up those ugly wires! They are the perfect height and are not too deep for the space.
And I went ahead and threw some accessories up there to see how I liked it. I can't believe how easy it was and how great it looks!
I love the new TV space and I think it is a HUGE upgrade from where it started! And the total cost was a little over $30 dollars because I had everything else but the crates. I'm excited about a successful first Pinterest project, and hopefully this will inspire me (and you) to take on another one soon!
