I found a couple of unused crate boxes I had made awhile ago and shoved them under the TV. Worked wonderful! But was a complete eyesore.
2 1x8 @ 35 inches
1 1x8 @ 36.5 inches
2 1x8 @ 7.5 inches ( make these square, so if your 1x8 measures 7.25" in reality, then cut at 7.25" etc.)
3 1x6 cut square also.
Wood glue/Nail gun/screws
FYI, the pictures show a smaller stand than what I ended up using. On that note, make sure you measure the stand your TV sits on and have the width of this TV stand be wider than that so you don't have a teetering TV :) I had to make mine twice cuz I guessed. Not fun. So, these are the measurements for the smaller TV Stand. Mine ended up being the same length just 3.5" wider.
Step 1: Cut all your wood to size
Sand the edges.
Step 3: Use wood glue and your nail gun, or screws, to secure the to shorter 1x8 pieces to the end of the piece you just cut out.
Step 7: Paint. Make sure you paint the real door squares before putting any hardware on them and securing them to the rest of the piece.
I was going to build some shelves on this side just like I did on the other side, but I'm worried about being two matchy matchy so I'm thinking this works just as well...maybe even better :)
The total cost of this should come under $20 if you already have the paint on hand.
