Need ideas for storage + tv for my living room

I'm wanting ideas on how to build my own storage for under my tv. I'd ideally like to hang my tv on the wall and have some type of storage underneath it. Right now, my tv is sitting on a tv console and it's WAYYYY to short. To change channels, control volume, or do anything with our cable or blu ray player you have to hold your arm straight up in the air and point the remote down. It's irritating to say the least. I've found some pictures on pinterest, and around the web that incorporate open shelving beside and or below the tv which i like, but wanted to see if anyone else had any other ideas. I'm looking to do something totally (or mostly) DIY as I just got some gift cards to home depot for christmas. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
I'm new to this, so I'll take some pics when I get home if this will let me upload them after the post.
