some times you just have to repurpose furniture to fit your spaces. when linda moved her tv bench - the oppli (pic, right) - to the cellar it didn't fit. so linda's husband sawed the sides and made new holes. and put them together again with plugs. lastly, a new coat of black and white paint to match the sideboard. and voila! it's as good as new.
