Using an Old Console TV

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!

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 like the tv console and the wall transfers were hard to spot. Cool. How did you do the transfers

were they hard to do?
