Q: We recently bought a house built in 1999, and the main feature of the living room/open plan downstairs is this giant built-in entertainment center. In an ideal world we'd like to get custom woodwork but we don't have the budget for it. We're getting the whole downstairs painted white, so I'm wondering - what do we do with this? Paint it? Change the cupboard doors? Any ideas? -Sent by Amber

Editor: This is a great reminder that built-ins, which I always covet, can be a mixed blessing. Have at it, everyone! What change(s) would you recommend for Amber, keeping her budgetary restraints in mind?
