thought so, how much work was it to modify them for the screen to come out.. looks like you had to obviously slat the bottom, but also the sides of the inner panels?

Nice looking room, love the drop down screen implementation. Looks like you're a good candidate to post on the Ikea hackers website.

Mourning the disappearing usage of the -ly suffix. Words being cut-off before they've had a chance to fully form, left incomplete, with their shoelaces untied and their zippers undone. If I quote your post (or post in your thread) without comment, please check your zipper.

Very nice. I have a similar color room and havent thought of using white for my next tv stand. Your place makes me think of using white. I also love the hidden projector screen, I am currently projecting on a beige wall because I dont want a screen visible, your idea of hiding the screen is great. I wonder if I can do the same with a 120" screen.

i don't see why not, only issue is that it has to be completely assembled on the ground and mounted as one piece, and this thing was pretty cumbersome due to the length and weight

No subwoofer I've heard has been able to produce the bass I've experienced in the Corps!

Must..stop...buying...every bluray release...
