Walmart offers the Walker Edison Wood TV Media Storage Stand for TVs up to 75" in several colors (Grey Wash pictured) for $150 with free shipping. That's tied with our mention from three weeks ago as the best deal we've seen for a TV stand of this size. (It's the best price today by at least $17.) It features adjustable shelving.
You don't need to hire a contractor or do extensive renovations to add value to your home.
