What To Do With An Old TV – Six Bright Ideas
Their time has long gone, but this doesn’t mean their practical role ends once new technology arises. As we have used you, taking old things and repurposing them in our homes, giving them a whole new utility. This time we will take a look at old TV sets, those bulky wooden boxes which wouldn’t display anything beyond the black and white chromatic combination and which now lie scattered in basements or garages. From simple decorative items, to practical things, here is what to do with an old TV.
You already have the wooden frame, the first step to crafting a chic mini-bar which will become the epicenter of the socializing activities at your place. You only need to add the fine drinks to complete the favorite spot of those will call on you.
Remove all the electronic components from the old device and rely on the same wooden frame to get what you can see below: a cute lair for your pet, either a cat or a dog. Draw your inspiration for the designs below.
And since we mentioned living creatures around us, another option, with a clear better aesthetic value, is turning the TV set into an aquarium. You just need to make it water-tight and your living room will then get extra originality.
Efficiency through simplicity is another rule guiding home designers. If you’re not patient enough to put into practice any of the above-mentioned projects, then keep the old appliance just for a decorative purpose. It is ideal to integrate it into a rustic or vintage décor for a better visual effect. Or give it a themed approach, such as winter holidays.
But if imagination takes you beyond the limits of decorative items, then kill two birds with one stone and turn the TV console into a chair so original you won’t find another one within a range of hundreds of miles. Until someone else sees this picture, of course! Just sit back and relax listening to music at the old radio next to the new furniture item.
And, since there’s a constant need for new storage spaces, turn the senior device into a small book case where to keep your favorite literature.
