Mrs. Black is a famous chef and had purchase an old dusty cherry entertainment center. The piece had one problem, not enough shelves. She had thought of putting her cooking books into these shelves, but she needed more space.
This post shows the fifteen steps on how to add more shelves to any piece of furniture especially this cherry entertainment center.
Step 1: Measure the shelves needed in entertainment center. Fig.1 shows there is only one shelf that needs replacing. Each shelf was exactly the same in all 3 tiers.
Step 2: Fig.2 shows The Home DepotⓇ orange cart and its shop magazine, shelves and parts for the job. The Home DepotⓇ customer service center cut all the shelves for the job for free. This made this job easier and we now had clean cut shelves.

Step 5: The paint top cover had to be pressed from both sides to remove the cover. A security measure to prevent kids from spray painting.
Step 6: Fig.4 shows the second coat of spray paint that will be sprayed over the melamine shelf.
