Did this for my own house. Built it in components and finished in place. Retiled the fireplace and added the fireplace surround.

I don’t know how I missed this one when you originally posted it. I have a set of these on my to do list as well. I may have to “borrow” some of your ideas (if THE BOSS approves it, of course). I like the look of the mahogany and you have a nice design in both the entertainment center and the fireplace surround.

Do you have dvd storage in the lower cabinets?

Well done and thanks for the post.

Hi Scott,

one of the cabinets has 3 pull out drawers that house our CDs and another has drawers for DVDs. The other two have adj shelves for everything else. Sorry these were in progress shots but you get the idea. All the drawers are still rough unsanded and unfinished. You can also see the “builder grade” mantle and fireplace surround that I ripped out and replaced. The “floating” shelves are actually torsion boxes secured to the walls and skinned with 1/4 African mahogany plywood.
