Billy Tobo hybrid TV unit

Materials: Tobo, Billy

Description: We got a new 37″ flatscreen TV but I couldn’t find anything that would suit for the base unit.

Our apartment is not the biggest and space is always at a premium so we needed something on wheels that would take up as little space as possible whilst containing the TV, the HTPC and all the junk.

By combining a Tobo, a bit of some Billy shelving some castors and some pine board we ended up with a nice unit that has lots of storage and is easy to move into position for movie nights but pushes up against the wall when we want more space.
