Lately, I've been coming across beautiful vintage
TV and stereo
cabinetry while making my weekly thrift shop
Most have beautiful wood finishes, and the designs are unusual and very retro
, but I haven't been able to bring myself to buy a heavy cabinet filled with a dead Magnavox just
for the cabinet. I continue to rack my brain to come up with a practical purpose for such a behemoth. What could possibly justify the time and trouble to lug this thing home?
Moxie, over on Craftster, came up with a clever and functional use for an old 1950s-style TV cabinet. Read more about it after the break.
She got in there and gutted the TV, and cleverly converted it into a cat port-o-let
-- so to speak.
After she carefully removed the innards, she constructed a shelf to hold the litter box, gave the cabinet a refreshing coat of green paint, and added a curtain over the front.
Be aware that she took safety precautions, since old TVs are loaded with lead. It's highly recommended that you take old electronics to a community or private reycling center, so they can dispose of the hazardous components properly.
