When my husband finished our basement several years ago, he had a Divine idea to frame out a wall unit around our huge( at the time) top of the line HD projection TV.   We hadn't considered at the time what on earth we would do if they went out of style and came out with flat screens.  Well that exact thing happened and after a few years we had to purchase a new one.   We temporarily (at least a year and a half) placed the flat screen in a spot it fit until we could come up with a new design plan.   We liked the existing cabinetry and it was well used so we decided to keep it but we replaced the tops with granite, had lighting added and had a built in installed where the big ugly old TV hole was.  I am very pleased with the outcome.   What do you think?  

YUCK YUCK and YUCK!!  What were we thinking??

A much improved beginning

Almost but not quite right

Now much better

Not exactly the "man cave" but we both love it

Hope you are having a wonderful day.
