We purchased our first home last fall. We knew the minute we saw the empty, white wall in the open concept living room how we would lay out the space and how we would transform the entertainment-wall. My hubby is a sommelier, so adding warmth and character with wine boxes came naturally.
We built out the wall with two by fours to hide all those unsightly cables. The horizontal pieces shown in the second picture are secured to the studs and the TV arm is mounted on top. We covered the whole wall in particle board leaving a few openings for the cables. We laid out the wine boxes on the floor, this was just for guidelines, the size of the wall dictated the final puzzle making. We attached the wine boxes using a nail gun [so much fun!] and made any adjustments as we went along. My hubby had the bright idea to attach three of the boxes with magnets, so we can easily access the conduit and the cables when necessary [brilliant!]. Adding charcoal grey to the living room walls and windsor mist blue to the dining area only enhanced the wood variations and the writing on the wine boxes.
The most expensive item of this venture was the TV bracket, of course it had to be a heavy duty arm, that extends out, so my hubby would not miss a single football play when seated at the dining table. In his defense, he found a great deal online, so we did not break the bank! We spent just over $65.00 for all of the other materials, so a couple of trips to the local hardware store (remember the magnets, that thought came after the first trip, paired with a cool Chicago weekend and two partners in crime and we now have the coolest entertainment wall, even if I say so myself.
I hope this will inspire you to create your own version, and if you do, please share your experience.
