I made this TV unit because I am moving out of home and wanted something cheap but nice for our new place.


  • 1 Kmart 8 cube storage unit (turned horizontally)
  • 6 wooden legs and attaching brackets (bunnings)
  • 1 can white spray paint
  • 4 cane baskets


  1. Assemble to cube as per instructions (we used glue for extra strength)
  2. Spray paint the legs to match the unit and wait until completely dry. Drill holes with the unit horizontally and attach the legs with the supporting brackets at the bottom.
  3. Add the baskets for some style so you can fill with personal trinkets etc!
