Looking for a Corner TV Stand???

I have been looking everywhere and can seem to find the one I need. It needs to be about 35" high and hold a 32" tv. I am reeally looking for something with open shelving and no doors. Does anyone know where I can find something like this? Color doesn't matter much, though I would like to stay with black, I am open to wood or wood-grain. Thanks for your help!

The only good solid ones I can think of are those at "Unfinished Furniture" and "Naked Furniture" outlets. I'm here in Nashville and they have a great selection of stands and large entertainment centers in all shapes and sizes. We got ours at Unfinished Furniture because they were the only one with what we wanted and could hold our 36" Sony. I think both even have a online catalog.

I helped a buddy assemble an 'oak' corner TV stand last year for his weekend house at the lake. Not sure where he bought it but I can inquire. It wasn't open, though I imagine you don't have to put the doors on. It might not be as nice as what you're looking for though.

Oh I can deal with particale board as long as it's pretty strong, I'm just looking for something really tall like this:

but cheaper. Really don't want to spend over $150-$200 on it, let alone $450!

I got one similar to that from Ames before it went out of business, think it was the particle board one made by Sauder. Has room for 3 vcr's or whatever and two doors on each side for videos or dvd's. http://www.furniturebuzz.com/detail.asp?model=SW2756
very similar to that one.

Yep, that Sauder one is the one my buddy has. Actually, he has two, one at home and one at the lake house. The one he has at home is the Sauder pictured above.

Why the height requirement, if I may ask?

You could buy two and stack them.

I bought this one for my parents for Christmas. It looks very nice and I paid around $160 with free shipping and a 10% off coupon (they email these to me every few weeks). The most recent one I have expired last Friday, but I'm sure as new ones pop up they get posted on the coupon sites.

i made this for the kitchen, just used a couple of finished partical shelves.


you just need to cut a couple of cleats for the shelf to sit on, it's just a 13" tv (not much weight) so no need to find the wall studs, the bottom shelf is tacked onto the chair rail.

the bedroom set holds a 27" tv so i did have to find the studs here.

this was made last year, i'll be redoing it this spring as i have a 35" sony that will be going in it's place.

I used to have a 32" TV on one of those round decorative tables with the screw in legs (about $10 at Target or WM). They also sell Glass tops for them for about $5 and "skirts" for $10 or so. It was a pretty nice looking stand for $25. It's also round, so it would fit well in a corner. The challenge would be what to do with the components.

My current bedroom stand is...I think it's a nightstand, but it works perfectly. Very solid wood with a single drawer for remotes and game controllers and a compartment that fits AV components perfectly. Got it at a yard sale for $15.
