Old Tv Transformation with Home Hinges

I’m absolutely in love with this TV Transformation project I found by April of Home Hinges. I was so excited I stumbled across her blog, she actually shares it with her four sisters- how fun is that?

April took this old, yucky TV:

And made this fabulous bookshelf:

    I think I laughed out loud when I saw the tv! Oh how I remeber the days of having to actually get up and change the 13 channels. My kids would be mortified! What a beautiful transformation!

  8. I remember taking my old TV to the dump. Could Have Saved Some landfill space. A friend of mine took a entertainment center with double doors and turned it into a bar. He covered the inside with frosted glass shelves, mirrors and hidden lights. The top was changed where it lifted up and displayed the bar glassware in the mirrors. All the barware, shackers, corkscrews etc had custom holders on the back of the doors. It was a cherry wood cabinet and looked really rich.
