For most people, nothing is more satisfying than curling up on the sofa binge-watching their favorite TV shows or Netflix series. However, an uninspiring TV stand can suck your energy, leading to a less exciting experience.
There’s nothing to worry about because with DIY, you can build a TV stand that’ll breathe new life to your living room. With a creative mind, the possibilities are limitless and you enjoy other benefits. First, you save your money. Second, it’ll add a touch of exclusivity to your home.
Here are unique DIY TV stand projects to keep you occupied this spring.
1. Concrete Top
If you have some extra cement remaining from your last construction project, it’s time to put it into use. You might also add other materials like wood and metal. Remember to include plenty of compartments for decor, books, game consoles, and more.
The most distinguishing feature of this TV stand is the concrete top that gives it an industrial feel.
2. Retro Revamp
Although TVs are kept at the front and center of a room for after-work Netflix binges, they don’t usually make the most impressive statement. Most people have TVs anyway, but what else adds that unique touch?
Well, take the style factor a notch higher by displaying your curved screen TV on a vintage or classic dresser, which can be painted, sanded, and gussied up to be an attractive and functional complement to your entertainment quandary.
3. Rolling TV Stand
The wheels of this moveable TV stand give it a rustic, vintage look that’s simply amazing. You can use the spaces available on the supporting boards to store your photo albums, stereo set, and small indoor house plants. The fact that you can move this TV stand easily makes it a great pick if you have a tiny house that you frequently rearrange furniture to serve different purposes.
4. Floating TV Console
Tired of your vacuum cleaner getting stuck under your modern TV stand? Why not raise your TV. Create the illusion of a large space by mounting your TV on the wall.

Sliding doors are stylish and unique. In addition, they give you quick access to other devices in the middle compartment. They provide the much needed hidden storage.
