In a corner of my living room, sitting unused and one on top of the other, are two retro style speakers
. The only reason that my husband hasn't hooked them up to his entertainment system
is that there isn't any place to set them up. They have sat in the corner for almost 4 years now, waiting for the day they can blast The Beatles
to my hubby's content.
Our speakers still work, but if you have an old speaker, or even a matching pair hanging around waiting for the day you will fix the broken whatever
, you can turn the speaker into a stylin' new media cabinet
. Here is what you will need:
- A speaker
- A hand saw and a rotary tool
- Claw hammer or crowbar
- Paint and wooden planks
- Screwdriver or power drill
GoodRubbish takes you through the steps needed to turn your old retro speakers into a handy media cabinet
to store all your CDs
, DVDs and VHS tapes. Be sure to read through the comments, as there is important information on exactly what digital
and optical media is safe to store with the speaker magnets and what could possibly be ruined by leaving the speaker magnets in place.
