Wood you like to give your IKEA BESTÅ TV unit a new look?

IKEA BESTÅ TV unit wrapped in cypress wood

2 IKEA BESTÅ TV units, screwed together, with drawers and doors.

I love my IKEA BESTÅ TV units but it was a little too much white for my taste. I purchased several planks of cypress, ripped them down to about 6 1/2 inches each, and edge joined them with the help of my pocket hole jig.

I ripped the complete piece down to a width 18″ and then cross cut 2 pieces that would be the skirts for the sides of the TV unit. I attached the skirts, sanded all of the exposed sides, and then sealed the wood with an oil based sealer.
