Although this unique console has a refurbished-vintage look to it, Stein actually made the piece using two Ikea Rast dressers and some beautiful hardware. The result is an inexpensive console with a very expensive look. Read the full DIY on Stein's blog.

The TV stands alone ... no more! We may love curling up on the couch to watch our favorite shows, but the TV doesn't need to stick out like a sore thumb the rest of the time. Treat the entire surface of your entertainment center and the wall above it as a style zone and you can successfully draw the eye away from the attention-hogging box. A long, low entertainment center works best, but on a smaller piece you can still flank the TV with a pair of sculptures, as shown here. If you have more room, try a pair of urn lamps plus a stack of books. Either way, a gallery-style art wall or floating shelf above the TV is a great distraction.

10. Bring in some bling. Can you guess what this looked like before it was transformed into this smart glossy black and gold TV unit? Believe it or not, it used to be two pine Rast chests. Homeowner Naomi Stein of Design Manifest took them up a level by adding three coats of a high-gloss black paint and detailed gold drawer pulls. (See the how-to here.) She then pushed the chests together, and a carpenter designed a low box for the top to house the cable box, wires and remote controls.Read more about the house and see other clever hacksYour turn: Do you have any fun furniture hacks?
