Well, I'm still perfecting the plans for the living room TV unit. In the meantime I decided to go ahead and make a cabinet for the bathroom. I've been looking around to buy one but the ones that fit my requirements exactly are way too expensive and I didn't want to get one from Ikea either. So yesterday I whipped up a cabinet. Well it's not finished yet but it won't be long. Finally after all this time I think we're near to finishing the bathroom!!

Here is the structure, still missing one panel on the back and the doors. It's 100cm wide, 90cm high and 10cm deep (without the doors which will be mirrored).

My cat is modelling it for you!

Work on the apartment this year has been going very slowly. We've been away for almost 2 months so all projects have come to a standstill.

I've been planning to build a TV unit for the living room for a long time but my ideas about how it's going to look keep on changing. Last week end we dismantled the old units and hung the new TV on the wall. So now we are in desperate need of the unit. Hopefully this will make me get around to making it quickly as we need the storage!! We have boxes of stuff all around the living room!!!!

The pic below is a PSed pic of my first ideas....

My newest ideas are to have it less bulky and a bit more streamlined. I think it looks better but obviously gives me less space for storage. Here it is in two different finishes. Excuse the quick Photoshopping!

I'm also working on some shelves for an alcove we have in the bedroom. Too messy to take a pic at the moment.

So, what do you think of my ideas for the TV unit?
The kids are back at school next week so work will (hopefully) start then!!!
