Living room home cinema: My stylish projector mount and hidden surround receiver

Stylish film projector mount and bookshelf

I have been looking for a way to integrate my home cinema projector into my living room.

I wanted it to be a stylish way, maybe a way to hide it away… Then I came across the Mandal headboard.

By putting three of them together I got the perfect projector mount and a cool looking bookshelf.
It was easy. I only needed to align the three headboards and make an extra shelf for my projector.
People seem to love it and it brings a nice warmth to the room too.

I got inspired from this site to hide my stereo… So I bought two Bissa 2-compartment shoe cabinet. I cut it down to one compartment and moved the bottom plinth to get a new design. I bought two because I needed an extra top to make the bottom look like the top. My pioneer receiver was a perfect fit. I have a google chrome cast, Apple TV, and WD TV mounted to the unit.

An IKEA hack for movie lovers. I hacked a stylish projector mount and hidden surround receiver to create a living room home cinema set up.

Thanks IKEA Hackers, cool to get inspired…
