Clarke and I found this amazing web-site called Knock-off Wood ( which takes Pottery Barn (and other stores) furniture, breaks it down and gives you step-by-step directions on how to build it.
Considering we are not millionaires, we can't afford Pottery Barn, but we sure as heck can copy them!
We bought a new TV (finally!) and needed an entertainment piece to fit it. So we built our own.
We started with this:
Building the frame:
Without the doors or shelves:
With doors and shelves:

Stained top:
Starting the paint:
All finished:
In it's new home in our Family Room with the new TV!:
We are SOOOOOOO happy with the way it turned out. We LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the color. And the best part, we spent about $150 on the entire thing!
Thanks Knock-off Wood!
