The tv needed a shelf to sit on. I went back and forth as to whether or not I wanted to hang it on the wall or just make a shelf. So I went with a shelf. I found a scrap piece of wood in hubby's work shop that was already stained so I had to sand it down to restain it. Then I found another board in the barn that was used for something else and I ran that through the planer to make it thinner and help take the stain off that.
I cut the one board in half and then pocket screwed it together to make the top of the shelf.
Here's the dresser and tv before I moved the mini fridge into our closet.
And here it is now.
change the color.
Eventually I'd like to get a tv that is a bit smaller. I know I measured a newer one that doesn't have the big "frame" around the screen and we could get the same size screen and the tv will be much smaller than that one.
