Repurposed chest of drawers/TV cabinet

I had a chest of drawers that I no longer needed for that purpose. The style of it screamed cottage style TV cabinet. My house is cottage style and I thought this fit in perfectly. My DBF took out the top 2 drawers, added a heavier piece of wood to hold the TV, framed around the TV cubby and added hinged doors. He left the bottom drawer to store DVD's, etc. and left a shelf open for the DVR and other electronics. I painted the doors to match the cabinet and painted the rose patterns but I didn't have to paint the cabinet otherwise. He also put wheel rollers so it would be easier to move if necessary.
