    for around 3 bills.

    long low cabnet style, expresso finish.

    preferably with a pole mount to hang the tv on.

    man we hooked ours up at best buy surprisingly enough, go take a look the have a lot of nice stands in the 400-600 range and i think a couple around the 300 mark. they didn't have it in stock when i was in their store so i bitched and got $ off plus free delivery.

    We will likely have our carpenter build one for us. He works fairly inexpensively and does a lovely job. I can give you his name if you like.

    He just built a stand for our fish tank (58 gallon - 24" x 36") with heavy duty framing (enough to hold 600lbs+ of water/aquarium), solid pine exterior, cabinet doors (with hardware), a shelf inside, finished trim and ready for stain for $240 including materials. All I need to do is stain it.

    He also built my bar:

    I will try to get better pics of the pieces he has done for us if you want.

    engh. we looked at jysk(the wife likes that place) and we didn't find anything we really liked. Some of the stuff looked ok on the website but I wasn't impressed at all with any of it in person when we went to go look. :(

    Yeah we went looking at a few things at JYSK and it all just seemed really cheaply made.

    I didn't want to put a 2g tv on a stand that was constructed by some 8yr old in china somewhere with materials that cost about 2 bucks that looks like it would break if i looked at it hard enough.

    I picked mine up at Walmart. Sounds just like what you are looking for. It has a expresso finish on the bring, 3 glass shelves & a bar to mount up to a 55" tv I believe. Price was $220 I think...

    here is a picture. Sorry for the shit quality, took it with camera on phone.

    liked the idea of the cabinet doors while we were picking one out, but cuoldn't deal with the overheating....especially with the xbox. also I reallllly didn't want to mount it on a pole thing....never liked the idea of that.
