A DIY Dowel Clad Entertainment Unit Downunder


Loved this DIY project by Nyome Blanchard and her husband that I spotted on Instagram over the weekend so much, I asked her if we could share here on the blog.  Measuring in at just under five meters (approx. 16.5 feet) wide, they were determined to find a way to have a custom wall to wall built-in within their budget in their new home in Fern Bay, NSW (Australia). 

Using 5 x 900 mm laundry top cabinet flat packs from a local hardware store, the couple wanted the project to be taller than a standard tv unit to give more visual weight in such a long space. They also needed it to be quite narrow so it didn't impede on the usable space in the lounge room. 

They clad the doors in half dowels and added a beautiful stone top. The result is stunning! Follow @lanchesbaybuild on Instagram as they continue working on their gorgeous home. In the meantime, check out the before/after progress!
