I had this vision a couple weeks ago and today it became a reality!

I picked up the 60" TV for $100 off of a coworker, and hit the local furniture thrift store and picked up the countertop and cabinet for $35! The most expensive part of the whole corner is the TV mount running $150. My first woodworking project (the base of the cabinet to raise it up about 6") turned out excellent as well. The measurements were perfect. I'm super proud of how this corner looks now (before it just used to have a dart board on the wall) and I'm extra excited to see how players like it tomorrow at our game!

I might post more pics of the room soon, we have a pretty sweet setup in a lease space.

What do you guys think?

I like your thinking! I too look for budget items for my poker room. Despite getting grief from the wife, I love searching for bargains at local thrift stores! And I'm sure the big TV will be a hit with your players.

It's on a new wall beside the pool table, with much better space to throw them! Before it was tucked into that wall with a second table pushed against it, not much real estate to work with. I'll have to clean it all up and take new pictures for you guys soon.

The room has seen some more upgrades since my last post.
Ditched the old fluorescent fixtures for some nice all-in-one LED fixtures I got for $35/piece. It was an easy plug and play replacement.

Next up we decided to replace the old toilet. The plumber buddy of mine came over to do the job and he found a 1986 time stamp in it, so it definitely lived a good life. Time for a new one, and got this high powered brand new one installed there for $310 total. Nice upgrade.
Of course I also went and bought a new coffee maker, which has been a huge hit. Half off a nice 12cup for $60.
As of recently, I found a table that I got for (in my opinion) a steal at $1590 delivered and installed with some solid legs. Picked it up from a nice guy named Mark (Markspokertables.com). Hear he’s liquidating some inventory but will get back in the game soon. Excited to hear from him again.
With the new table coming today, I have also ordered a Shuffletech ST-1000 and flush mounting kit from Chan today that will hopefully arrive soon.
I am personally very excited as to all this is turning out! I will have more pictures and updates soon :)
