New Furniture

January 28, 2012 - 3:48pm

We've got a piece of new furniture in the house - a credenza! As you can see from the pictures, it is a wall-hanging credenza, also called a floating credenza.

New Credenza

New Credenza

This is a piece Chris and I have wanted to do for years though never got around to it. Over the holidays, I had trouble sleeping one morning and was surfing the internet when I stumbled on a post at The Brick House about a Fauxdenza. Morgan had the great idea to use Ikea kitchen cabinets for her credenza then top it with a piece of nice wood. I was in love with the idea and knew it would be perfect for us.

As soon as Chris woke up, I ran the idea past him. After some discussion, brainstorming, and, of course, breakfast, we were on our way to Ikea. Procuring materials was the easy part - it always is. There were a few hurdles that we had to clear.

  1. Wires: The first was making space for wires. Since our credenza is under the TV, it holds all the electronics and the miles of tangled wires. Chris put some wood 2x4s behind the cabinets to create a few inches of space between the wall and the cabinets. It created just the right amount of space for wires.
  2. TV: The second was hanging the TV on the wall. Lucky for me, Chris worked in professional home video and audio installation for years so he makes it look easy.
  3. Heat: The third hurdle is the amount of heat the electronics produce. Right now the solution is to simply open the cabinets to let in cool air while we're watching movies or playing video games. The long term solution will be some sort of fan to vent in air from the underside of the cabinets.

Chris and I are both very happy with this project and how it has opened up the living room. Removing the large table that previously held the TV, we regained at least a foot of space. I also love how easy it is to clean underneath the credenza.

I failed to take a proper "Before" picture but here are a couple shots that give a little bit of a glimpse of what our living room was like before this new piece of furniture.

Hi there,

I came across your post while searching for pictures of a fauxdenza / entertainment center. I'm looking to make the same piece but I have a few questions before I start and I was wondering if you would't mind helping me out.

I don't see any wires hanging from your TV into the fauxdenza, how did you conceal them? I see you mention adding some 2x4's to the back of the piece to add a gap... how many did you use and where did you place them? I think thats all my questions for now. I'd really appreciate your help!

Thanks,
Katie

I really like your simplistic approach to your living room decorations. I think you did a great job with the rug placement, pulling in all of your furniture in the living room, together.
