Our Entertainment Center ~ Hiding TV Cables

I really hate looking at TV cables and wires, and could not wait to finish this little project.  I purchased our entertainment center unfinished at a flea market a couple years ago and stained it a dark walnut color.  I really loved the rustic look of the piece, but I didn't love the open back that exposed all of the wires and cables.  One day, I had an "aha" moment, and decided to add backing to the piece to hide all the mess.  I went to Home Depot and had them cut two pieces of wood in the dimensions of the two openings.  They drilled a hole in the back of each piece of wood so we could link the wires through.  This was super easy and saved alot of time having them do it in the store.  I brought the wood home, and stained it in the same dark walnut color, and had my hubby nail them to the back.  Here is the before and after!

Much better, right?!?  I am so glad we finally did this...it was on my to-do list forever!
