BYÅS Media Hack






Materials:
BYAS Media Unit, hinges, metalic strip, nails, spray paint

Description: Instead of having the unit slide out as it was meant to be, I used hinges for the door to open downwards and added a magnetic strip to keep the door closed. Shelves provided can still be added.

I cut the back panel and nailed it into the unit so I can plug various inputs into it.

I spray painted the bottom and the shelf in the middle with lacquer paint. Interior shelves can be painted also.

I saw units similar like this from $400 to over $1200. Materials might be a bit different but it looks the same. This project cost me about $135 Canadian.

    Hi,
    I’ve been looking for the open shelf dimensions (width especially) for this TV stand for days.
    Could you please take a measurement and provide it to me? I’d like to make sure my HTPC would fit.
    Cheers,
    Omar
