Now you barely even notice the speakers and I have tons of extra display and storage space! I love the way it turned out. It adds a lot to the big bare wall that was. I screwed the drawers directly into the wall through each corner. Then I painted them all white. I painted my drawers/shelves after having hung them on the wall, because I wanted to make sure I would like the look once they were all up. Here is the before picture of the unpainted drawers/shelves,
Painting everything white really cleaned up the look. If I had to do it over again, I would have painted the drawers/shelves before attaching them to the wall. It would have saved me from having to tape everything off and I could have used spray paint which would have been much faster!
**THIS ROOM HAS HAD AN UPDATE**
These boxes have gone through a few transformations. Here is a picture of how they ended up. (For now anyway). The backs are covered with fabric.
