Using Reclaimed Wood in Your Media Center

It's easy to turn to Ikea for all your home needs. And while it's nice on the wallet (and the eyes) leaning on Ikea too much means you're also leaning on the environment a bit too much as well. Until the Swedish superstore figures out a way to reuse its MDF and plywood it's a good idea to take a look at how to furnish your media room with reclaimed woods.

While doing some Etsy procrastinating the other day, we found a few beautiful pieces crafted by Inspired by Nature. The family run shop, based out of Memphis, TN focuses on "earth friendly designs and customer satisfaction". That's a motto we can support!

Two pieces caught our eye, both media consoles that can accommodate your television and whatever peripherals need to be attached to it. Both pieces use reclaimed barnwood to build a sturdy and practical piece that tones down the geekery that's naturally a part of any piece of tech.

The back panel is made from 1/2" baltic plywood that has been painted with black milk paint in order to have it sort of disappear. Behind each shelf is a cable hole bored into the back panel to accommodated cables and wires. Depending on the finish, each piece starts at $450 and goes up to $500.
