We have been constantly looking for a solution to store our TV boxes. Due to space issue we were looking for a compact and also a non-expensive item. Finally, We got an idea of placing a
white shelf on top of the fire place for boxes. Now the problem is:
1. Not able to find the size we are looking for i.e. 60" L x 14" to 15" D.
2. Saw one at Low's which can be made to our specifications but a/ Not crazy about the quality and design (too plain and boring) and b/ only one side of the shelf is finished. I have no clue on how to take care of unfinished sides?
Does anyone know from where to find a good shelf? Also if sides are unfinished, how to take care of it? Or if I get one custom made, any idea how much it would cost? Please advice.

@ Steve, Thanks for giving me the much needed confidence. I'm going for it now..fingers
Re Fireplace, I am not worried about it as we don't use it. Anyways, burning woods in California is banned. As per new law, only electric fireplace can be used now.
@Woodbridge and KMS, Thanks for your suggestions. I want a basic one which I can build myself and let me tell you one thing, this is something I am NOT very good at :))
