My lounge is full of STUFF and THINGS, and none of it is arranged very nicely.
(Previous thread on that coffee table)
I’ve been living in this house for ten years this week, and I can do better than this!
The plan is to attack it in phases, eventually (many months/years? later) doing the whole room in a cohesive design, with loads more shelves and cupboards, nicer materials, and just better use of the space.
Here’s what I’ve got in mind:
I’ve got the whole thing modelled and drawn up in plan and section
I’ve picked the TV corner to start with, as it gets looked at the most and is the most messy. The door will be replaced with a slider, which will go into a hidden pocket behind the TV.
It’ll all be made of MDF-on-framework sandwich panels, oak veneered on the “outside” faces, painted white on the “inside” faces, with solid oak strips to all the horizontals and verticals. I’ll need to get well versed on the panel saw, but it should be a simple matter of making lots of mostly-rectangular bits and then dowelling them together. I’ve got my solid oak parts all scheduled, and my sheets all divvied up for cutting.
All I need now some materials, some time, and some motivation, which is what this thread is partly for.
