Ok, I have officially moved onto phase 2. A while ago I mentioned something about taking on a new project to do something with the close in basement. This closet is in the back of the "theater" (I still dont really like calling it that, because its not a theater, but I have no other name for it yet).
IN the back of this area, I consider it multi purpose.
- kids can watch TV (I have a CRT TV in the left corner of the closet. I just forgot to sketch it in )
- dad can have the guys over for poker night
- extra seating area for when we have the big screen is on (super bowl, birthday parties, multi guest movie night, etc..)
So, while I could do this: (BORING!)
I am thinking of doing this....screw the closet! After all, its just loaded with crap anyway.
But read on...as its just more than a wall unit.
Ok, so I can't just get rid of all the crap...but what I am thinking is...how can I hinge the panels on this wall unit so that I can "open" it up and access the storage space behind.
I have some ideas to build this in 3 units. The top section, the middle, then the bottom. The top will be hinged to raise horizontally (up/down like a hatch back window) and the middle will be on the left sided hinge to open like a door (need a heavy hinge). And the bottom unit will simply sit, but yet be moveable. Perhaps on casters.
What do you think? I still have closet functionality but the use of space is so much cleaner than putting a big CRT in the corner (I have a 36" Sony Trinitron) and now I have space to put up a flat panel LCD.
