My parents got a new TV and needed a piece of furniture to rest it upon. Whilst searching the Internet for entertainment centers that would fit their new, bigger, fancier TV, my mom and I discovered that a lot of the nicer looking ones are horrendously expensive. Enter Ana White's website. The website had a plan for one that I thought would look amazing in the space, and it also did not look too difficult for a beginner. So, I adjusted the lengths of the end cabinets to span the length of the room, and I promptly called my grandpa (who has a history in woodworking) to see if I could borrow his tools and his brain to oversee my first building project! He gladly agreed, and we had an incredible time building together! My dad and brother were supposed to help, but they ended up wandering off to play soccer most of the time - which was ok, because my grandpa and I didn't need them anyway! Apparently, this is exactly what my dad did when my grandpa asked him for help when he was younger, so I suppose we shouldn't have really been surprised. On the bright side, I now feel confident enough to take on new projects by myself, and my parents have a great looking media center that functions perfectly for storage as well.
