17 TV Stand Media Console IKEA Hacks

These DIY IKEA hacks for TV stands and media centers create unique and stylish pieces for your home.

A TV stand is a very important piece in your living room.  Most of us have TVs in our living rooms and we need a great stylish piece of furniture on which to perch them.

This is where IKEA products come in!  IKEA already sells numerous TV and media centers/units that are already stylish and affordable.   For instance the Besta TV stand is the perfect piece for your TV already!

But you can also hack not just the Besta, but also other IKEA pieces of furniture to create more unique and even more stylish pieces for your home.

I was recently looking for a new TV stand for my basement living room. I trawled through numerous websites and online stores looking for the perfect piece.

Nothing took my fancy quite enough it seemed. So I started to look at other options, and this is where these IKEA hacks came in! I already love IKEA pieces, especially the Besta, but I wanted to do something a little different.

These 17 examples show you exactly what you can do with a little elbow grease and imagination. You can have a stand-out TV/Media center in your living room that is so unique nobody else will have it!
