We've featured quite a few DIY home theatre set-ups before, but this clever IKEA hacker saved himself some money by turning a few bookshelves and a coffee table he already had into an enclosed entertainment centre.
This hack isn't as sleek as some of the other IKEA bookshelf-to-home-theatre hacks we've featured, but what's nice is that you can mod the basic premise to any bookshelves and coffee tables you already have lying around—and it can do a good job of turning into a messy wall into one nice unit. This was what Michael, the creator of this hack, started with:
All he needed to do was cut the table to make it fit inside the shelves and paint it all one colour (don't worry, it doesn't have to be bright yellow if you don't want it to be). It's a nice way to make do with what you have, and save yourself from buying new furniture just to mod it. Hit the link for more photos.
