There are many people who say home theater furniture looks all the same. Even if you don't agree, modifying and hacking an entertainment media furniture piece can help create a unique configuration...the only limit is your budget and your ingenuity as showcased by these examples below...
Mary from Guelph, Ontario, Canada, and her husband were trying to find the perfect entertainment center for their home. They decided to use a long wall in their house, but they wanted to keep things low, like a custom credenza because there were some windows on that wall. They weren't able to find one long enough in stores. Instead of going completely custom, they decided to combine two IKEA Besta shelves with a Billy bookcase to come up with their own made to order entertainment center.
The two Besta shelves are located on each side of the entertainment center. They are combined by using some Billy bookcase shelves as a middle joiner. The whole thing was made to look like a complete credenza thanks to some leftover wood from their flooring. This allowed them to make a sort of table top for the entertainment center, making it seamless.
