Built A New TV Stand

Recently Jamie and I purchased a new 40″ Sony LCD HD TV. We just got sick of our old standard definition unit. This new TV is awesome and the picture clarity and color is amazing. BIG difference from standard def, especially when playing Xbox games in full 1080p now.

So since we’re crammed in the room we had to move the dresser somewhere else since a 40″ flat screen isn’t going to fit on top of it. Now we had the whole corner and just needed a stand. Stands were ridiculously expensive and we just couldn’t see spending $200+ for something I could build and make look just as nice.

So with that I drew up some plans and gathered my dimensions. With the help of my father we put together a very nice TV stand that perfectly fit everything. Now we just have to decide if we want to stain the nice birch or paint it to match the room color.
