Find an old console tv, remove the tube and make it a 3-d decoration. I use mine as an aquarium, too! Please notice the cool design transfers on the wall!

I love your funky, thrifty style. Keep posting pics of your artistic decorating, I enjoy seeing stuff like this and I bet others do too.
Great idea! I'm planning to buy an aquarium soon, but unfortunately don't have a console TV (except one that works and I'm using). But it reminds me of a set of bookcases I've had for many years. Around 1950 my parents had a 12" round screen TV. After it died, my Dad cut it in two crosswise, put in shelves, and made 2 bookcases out of it. I treasure them - they remind me of my Dad who's been gone more than 20 yrs., and reminds me of growing up in the wonderful 50's. Now I'm reminded that maybe frugality is hereditary.
I built some shallow sheleves and use a console fro small nick nack rack
WOW...You sure have a knack for filling the imagination with small places.......very unique....!
I like the tv console and the wall transfers were hard to spot. Cool. How did you do the transfers
were they hard to do?
I used mine for an entertainment center....Irony
