The design brief was to provide as much open book shelf storage as possible and glass doors for more important items to be displayed. The wood chosen was Tasmanian oak with a natural clear lacquer finish to present a light contrast to the darker timber floor. Inset lights were fitted to the bevelled glass door section and all shelves made adjustable.
The entertainment cabinet features full extension drawers and removable wood dividers for storage of DVDs and CDs. A safety-glass panel door was used for the media components section in the centre and a cavity was made at the rear for storage of the many cables and junction boxes. The styling is “Shaker”, a classic North American look known for its clean lines.

Carul was at a point where she wanted to finally retrieve her other valued Book display shelves and entertainment cabinet transformations. Before… from cardboard boxes and display items of family history – everyone has a corner crammed full of personal items in need of better organisation.. Also, in the same room, a replacement cabinet for underneath the t.v screen was required to accompany the new storage project. In the next post, you will see the design solutions completed and installed by woodwoodwoodwood.
The design of the wall cabinet includes shapes used for the original window and door frames. It was painted white to blend into and complete the overall look required by Sonia and Theo. Although alterations were required after the first installation, the second fitting proved successful – much to everyone’s relief.
