Furniture styles are always changing, but one big style that has changed in the last ten or so years is entertainment centers. With the invention of the thinner flat screen TVs, those deep entertainment centers aren’t necessary anymore — something much thinner will work, or you can even hang your TV on the wall (and frame it like we did ;).
Sooo… that leaves lots of older style entertainment centers sitting around on curbs and in thrift stores. Which makes them the perfect DIY revamp candidates, of course. And our guest today made quick work of hers by removing the top and chopping it down to make it into a TV console table, perfect for holding your electronics beneath your wall-mounted TV:
When you’re revamping furniture, it’s important to use what you have wisely and make the existing features work for you. For example, a dresser made a great base for this awesome tall mudroom bench (featured here)
Or a taller dresser is a great candidate for a new bookshelf (featured here).
An old sewing table is a perfect fit for a drink cooler — perfect for entertaining! (featured here)
