Any ideas on incorporating this column either as a cabinet or wall unit for a 40" tv?

It doesn't seem like a good idea. I think that instead you need to get a console to go along a wall and place the TV either on the console or hanging above it.

Unfortunately that is the only practical side of the room.

I would just move the tv unit so it is inline with the column. Will it fit with the top?

Is your family room in the basement? That is a very low ceiling height in the photo and the hutch seems off for that space. I would get rid of the hutch and explore other areas in the room where you can just mount the tv on the wall. If this is your basement I would focus on keeping the space clean lined. Low seating. Mid century console for tv elements maybe large floor pillows for younger family members. As for the column. Maybe you can hire a handyman to make a slightly wider wall that can serve as a hanging space or art wall and you can clad the wall in a light colored brick. Add more photos to give a fuller picture.

Help! I'm a design challenged father. I need to design a cozy room for my stay at home college daughter. She likes white furniture and low dressers. The room is 13x9. Two windows. Tight budget.

can you drywall that column to back wall and add one on the other side to create a built in look for TV and components.

Tell her that low dressers take up more floor space, of which she has little. She needs to go vertical with her furniture. I like the furniture she has, tho I think that there is too much of it. She has a fairly big closet and two big storage pieces. I suggest she get rid of one of the pieces and consolidate her clothes into the other piece. Then, as an extra holiday present, you might give her a wall mounted TV.

For white furniture, I suggest paint.
