i don't want something that's 7 feet tall... That's the height it needs to be mounted.
I'll look at Ikea, I actually forgot about Ikea. I went to Home Depot, but they didn't have anything that looked good.
Don't know if it's an option, but I mounted my projector on a closet shelf in an adjacent room. I made the whole all the way through the wall, put the projector on the shelf, and then put molding around the opening to dress it up. It looks nice and works fine.

Try IKEA they have all sorts of shelving / cabinets that should work for less $$$
Why don't you just mount the projector traditionally and put the other equipment in a closet or somewhere else out of the way? It would look much better (probably). An Infra red extension kit is less than $100 and you can get long cables from monoprice.com for cheap to run to the projector from the receiver.
