I am looking for an idea on how to repurpose an old floor model tv.  Was thinking of some type of storage but have no idea where to start.  I am a virgin DIY'er.  Thank You

First off is safety, those capaciters can still contain power and can kill you. Second is finding a way to properly dispose of the tv components you remove.

Here is a great write up and some good comments about changing a console tv into a shelf unit. I thought about doing this but for safety and disposal reasons I decided to just find something else I liked better.

Icon_missing_thumb AidelK That shelf on Apartment Therapy is beautiful! I once saw an old tv cabinet in a dr's office that had the screen removed and replaced with an aquarium. It was whimsical and nice-looking. Sounds a little daunting for a DIY, though.
