2. Corner Home Theater System
Got limited space or an unusual floorplan? A corner cabinet allows plenty of room for you to store your various knickknacks without sacrificing too much floor space.
3. Wall-Mounted Entertainment Center
The silhouette of this wall-mounted media nook is so simple, even an absolute beginner can jump in right away. Add some LED strips at the bottom to complete the look.

If you have little ones at home, your entertainment center can double duty as both TV rack and toy storage. It’s a one-stop-shop for everything your kids need for afternoon playtime.
5. Rustic TV Stand
Bring in the warmth rustic charm with this simple TV stand. Its solid wood design adds even more versatility as it looks great whether stained or painted over (depending on your preference).
6. Upcycled Office Cabinet Console
Heavy-duty office furniture can comfortably handle a TV most of the time, making this a great upcycling option. If your cabinet’s too low, you can use some bun feet to lift the table up to the perfect height.

9. Faux Fireplace Entertainment Center
This entertainment center gives the warm, cozy feel of a fireplace even if it’s not possible for you to have a real one.
10. A-Frame Media Center
This A-shaped console lends a unique look to your entertainment nook – this one’s especially fitting for a rustic or country-themed abode. To create this distinct design, all you need is a mallet, some lumber, and a circular saw.
11. White Cabinet Console
Beneath the white cabinet doors lies a space you can slot in your TV. This project is quite a time and labor-intensive, so it’s best done if you have a bit more woodworking experience under your belt.
12. Minimalist Entertainment Center
An old picnic table is a centerpiece in this minimalist media corner. You can slot in some shelves in between the gaps and hold them in place with a couple of dowels.
Make sure to test for stability regularly, as you wouldn’t want any expensive electronics to fall off.
