Wall shelf from a coffee table with a bonus end table!
They say, "I went to Ikea to look for wall shelves for the components (stereo, dvd, etc) - avoid using a piece of furniture just for the components. None of the wall shelves Ikea sold were deep enough. I then purchased two Lack coffee tables and used the tops as the wall shelves. I secured them to the wall with the Ekby brackets, and wired the components through the back of the wall.
With the leftover coffee table bits, I constructed a decorative end table, perfect for housing a lamp, using the Lack's second shelf as the table top, and a base stablizer. The legs form a column as the base.
