About This Space

This is a second home in Florida that lacked storage and interest. So I designed the built in storage unit and a valance over the patio doors to add a little more interest and storage. The TV unit makes the entertainment a little more refined. It was built in paint grade plywood veneers. I did the painting. The screen on the cabinet that holds the sound system and other electronics is rug hooking fabric painted the same color as the cabinets. It's inexpensive and the controls shoot through it perfectly.
