Man Room Built in TV unit

I am so beyond excited to share this project.  It has been a year in the making, and it is finally finished.  Let me start by saying this couldn't have been done if it wasn't for my husband who was the builder of this fantastic unit and my dad who helped us out with the crown moulding to finish it off. 

It may have taken a little bribing of a large TV with no home for it to go but it was well worth it.

I am not a fan of the big speakers but I was told they had to be there as it is a man room and all.

After researching many different options and styles we came up with this one.  It was build as one large piece and then pushed back into place. 

  Just as I was starting to paint


First Coat of Primer went on



This unit took a few coats of paint to get the color I wanted to achieve.  First I started with a dark base and then after seeing it I wasn't to crazy about it.  So I reversed the colors and did the base in the light and then mixed the darker color with a glaze and brushed it on. 



I still need to fill some of the spots on the shelves but haven't been able to find what I want yet.

Are you sure this has to be a man room, because if this was in my house I might never leave this room! I love how it turned out your guys (and you too!) all did a great job!
