In the spirit of using the materials at hand, my husband and son repurposed a cabinet. They turned it sideways, removed the doors. built a frame, moved the door pieces to the sides, added leftover hardwood flooring, painted it white, and added a board on top.
The board was a shelf in our living room in a former life. They found two inexpensive cabinet doors at our local Habitat store. Now we have a beautiful entertainment center. Love it!
