How To Decorate An Entertainment CenterIkea Entertainment Center HackForwardYesterday I did a spring/summer facelift to our entertainment center. Added some shells, and more pops of coral and greens. If your husband is like mine its go big or go home with the television. So making it pretty is a challenge. When we moved in three years ago, a built in entertainment was not in the budget, so we decided on a ikea unit. We couldn't be happier with our super affordable option and I like that I can still make this monster of a tv look somewhat pretty.See Morefrom Instagram

After building your cabinet frames using IKEA’s instructions, the process is super easy to hang these floating credenzas. You start by using a level to make a long straight line on your wall about an inch below where you want the finished top of your credenza to sit. IKEA’s Sektion upper cabinets come with a rail that the cabinets hang on. With a couple helpers, hold the rail up on the wall flush with your line and mark your screw placements that line up with the pre-drilled holes in the rail. It’s a good idea to find your wall studs and line up the holes with the studs to make the rail extra secure and to save you the steps involved with hard core wall mollies! (PS I used painters tape here to mark out the rough dimensions of Ali’s TV and some of her art before we chose a height for the credenza. Super easy and very helpful!)

My attempt at a hack on our old IKEA entertainment center to get the same look (white interior, wood exterior) has failed. I tried painting the entire thing white–even with good primer–and the paint peeled right off when I went to install the shelves. This is the solution! Going in the basement, so our “studs” are metal beams…thinking of solving with very strong mollies or putting some legs on the credenza. You’re coming to the rescue, YET AGAIN, Jenny! Thank you!

I made my first floating credenza for Lucy’s living room. Ali and I loved the project so much, we came home and made one for her family room! Her credenza was a little longer and we did a darker stain on the waterfall surround, but the concept is the same.

I am interested in how the components work on the inside. Did you cut out the backs to plug in a DVD player, cable box, etc.? Any chance to get a peek inside?? Thanks. I have been considering doing this for a while, but I think I will add faux legs to make it look like a piece of furniture rather than floating.
