Apothecary Style Media Console

Today I am going to share two Pottery Barn-inspired consoles built by a couple of very talented ladies, Jen from House of Wood and Whitney from Shanty 2 Chic. First up is Jen, who sought out the assistance of Ana White to build a media console to hold her 50” plasma TV that had been collecting dust in storage. My favorite part is how the beveled apothecary-style door flips down to reveal a cubby that hides the media components. How cool is that?!?

Entertainment Center with Hidden Storage


Desperately needing an entertainment center with more storage, and more specifically hidden storage, Bee from Windgate Lane had to figure out a cost-effective solution.

Numbered Media Console

Years ago Amanda from Burlap & Denim had scored a chest of drawers for only $50 from an outlet that sells returned items. One of the drawers was missing, but Amanda cleverly stuck a basket in its place and no one was ever the wiser. When Amanda spied Anthro’s numbered chest of drawers, she knew [...Read More]

Faux Drawer Media Console

Ashley from Shanty 2 Chic totally fell in love with a media console with faux front drawers while browsing Ana White’s site. She modified the plans slightly to allow for more storage space.
