Electronic entertainment is a permanent reality in almost every home. Unfortunately the media used to store that entertainment changes quickly. From 8-track to CD and VHS to DVD, our entertainment storage continues to be a tricky proposition.

If these media were as attractive as leatherbound books, that would call for an open bookcase-style solution. But most modern media are, well, pretty ugly. This is especially true if you’ve gone to the trouble of building attractive period furniture for your home.

After wandering through a home center store and noticing a clever pantry cabinet design, I carried the thought a step further and realized the same multi-layered storage could work next to my entertainment center.

Once the cabinet was finished, I recognized even more uses for this versatile cabinet. It would actually make a very nice dry bar, or you could certainly place it in the kitchen and use it as a pantry. What an idea!
