Convert indoor armoire to outdoor entertainment center

Hello All,

 
 
 
 

I wish to embark on a project to convert a pocket door armoire into an entertainment center that can survive the elements.

 
 
 
 

Goals

 
 
 
 

– unit will house a tv, cable box, and soundbar year round

 
 
 
 

– bottom drawers or doors will be used for deck or grill storage (charcoal, utensils, etc)

 
 
 
 

– unit will be decorated in a way that will allow me to weatherproof so not much moisture penetrates

 
 
 
 

Facts

 
 
 
 

– unit will be outside unprotected from sun, temperature, and moisture.

 
 
 
 

– unit is made out of wood

 
 
 
 

– unit is not yet purchased. I am eying several on craigs

 
 
 
 

Million dollar question

 
 
 
 

How can I weatherproof this unit and decorate it at the same time to flow with the brown deck and cream house siding?

 
 
 
 

My ideas

 
 
 
 

– use vinyl siding

 
 

– find plastic sheeting that ia decorative

 
 

– consider metal sheeting

 
 

– paint

 
 

– epoxy

 
 
 
 

That is about as far as I have made it in my project.

 
 
 
 

Please feel free to express your ideas and opinions!
