Brimnes Tv Unit, Black, 707/8×161/8×207/8

And it’s a gorgeous handmade mid-century cabinet that I bought off eBay last year for a steal (well, I like to tell myself it was a steal because the only other option is to acknowledge the thought that I could have been ripped off – which is a reality – I guess I was..).

Of course, my husband hated it from the moment he laid eyes on it. And naturally, he wasted no time voicing that at every opportunity he could (oh I’ve just had a sudden bout of deja-vu here. Did you read my last post about our new velvet sofa?)

This went on for about a year mind you (I’m just as stubborn as he is relentlessly)…

Until one day I decided enough was enough! If I was ever going to have a break, it’s… sorry, the TV cabinet had to go!

How To Create Your Own Entertainment Unit

So yes, now I have two cabinets (all thanks to hubby dearest). One that is currently sitting in the garage waiting to be listed on eBay (I’m bawling my eyes out here) and another, well this one…. I made it from plywood!

This project is a collaboration with Gorilla Glue. I’m pretty sure most of you are familiar with them – so I won’t go into too much detail about the brand itself.

What I will say though, is that I have been using Gorilla Glue consistently for most of my diy projects and they have never once disappointed. All of their products do exactly what they say they do – seal with all the strength and toughness of a gorilla.

I was sent a variety of products for a project. However, I ended up using the glue from the clear glue range. I like that this glue dries clear and doesn’t flake!

I usually cut all my own wood, but this time I felt the need to cut a few corners. I popped into my local hardware store (JEWSON in this case), bought a huge plywood panel, and watched as they cut the wood down exactly to my measurements.

Note : I based the measurements for this build around the existing TV cabinet I already had – you know the one we shouldn’t talk about

However, if you want to do this step yourself, using a circular saw with a guide will ensure you get perfect cuts every time!

Drill two holes into each end of the larger wooden panels (these holes need to be large enough to fit 75mm screws). The holes should be placed not too close to the edge of the wood as they will be used to screw the side panels in place (

To do this, apply gorilla clear glue to each end of the base wood panel. Note; as plywood is a fairly porous wood, it is not necessary to spray it with water before applying glue.

Place the shorter wooden panel on top of the glue – using a 90 degree angle to ensure it dries straight away. You can mount this contraption against a wall or secure it with clamps while you wait for it to dry (if needed)

Once the glue has dried (it dries clear after 1-2 hours, but needs at least 24 hours to bond/cure), put the final top panel in place in the same way. You should end up with a rectangular box like this

Gorilla glue bonds wood together quite well. However, to give this TV stand even more stability, I inserted 75mm screws through the pre-drilled holes.

Make sure all hinges are in place – one end to the inside of the TV stand and one end to the cabinet doors.

NOTE: It may appear that I have missed a step here regarding cutting the cabinet doors, but remember that they have already been cut to size by my hardware store.

Not only does this shelf create additional storage for TV and media connections, but it also provides additional support for the TV stand.

To fix it in place, you will first need to create brackets from the smaller cuts of wood. Don’t forget to pre-drill two holes for each of the brackets

Apply clear gorilla glue to the back of the brackets and attach it to the inside of the sides of the TV stand (use a level to make sure it’s straight).

The support I had bought was wider than my cabinet – so I had to cut it to size with a handsaw before nailing it in place

To make the loops, measure and mark where you want each hole to be. Then use the drill with a 3/8 bit to create them. You will need to use some force to ensure that the drill bit cuts all the way through the wood.

Now if you like the raw look, you could stop here with this tutorial and attach your desired legs.

It took me a total of 3 hours to apply the painters tape. I really wanted to make sure everything was straight before even trying to paint.

The black stripes worked out to be 9.1cm thick. And I used a gap of 8.5cm between each stripe.

I am very pleased with these legs that I bought from Amazon. They were great quality and the color matched the cabinet perfectly.

I mean it looked pretty crazy in my studio, but when I brought it home and put it in my living room, I nearly died at how pretty it was!

It pains me to admit it (because that would mean admitting that my husband was right), but this new TV stand matched the decor in the living room much better than the first one.

Build Office Builtins With Ikea Cabinets

My husband and I have been into this DIY thing for over a decade but I have only recently started documenting our projects and plans on our blog. With a super tight budget it’s hard to splurge on store bought items for our home, so we build our own furniture while trying to use as much salvaged and reclaimed wood as we can. Case in point, this DIY reclaimed wood TV table.

Here’s what we’ve been working with – a dresser we picked up at Target about 12 years ago for $100 that has served multiple purposes. First, clothes storage for our bedroom, then a changing table / dresser for our baby (now 7) and finally as a media cabinet in our living room. From a distance it looks cute and unforgettable, but get a little closer and it’s a little rough
