Dresser Dilemma!

Not too long ago we were blessed to have found the perfect dresser to convert to a TV stand. We thought that maybe the inside could be used as shelves to hold the components but upon closer inspection, the materials there seem to be very bowed and of very thin materials. I would post a picture of it, as I've taken a few from my iPad - but when it pops up on Hometalk the picture is upside down - I'm not sure if that's a bug or not... Anyway, they look like they can be replaced, but the material would have to be somewhat thin to fit in the slots. Being inexperienced in this area, we're not sure where to go from here. Has anyone else run across this? Any suggestions? Thanks!

    Oh good, I'm happy you've figured it out. I was gone most of the day yesterday so didn't get a chance to check back in as I normally would have.

    @Becky - Thanks! No problem. I understand how busy things can get. Hopefully I can post pictures of it tomorrow. We're just going to make sure everything works.

    Looking forward to seeing it. I have a MCM dresser I planned on turning into a flat screen TV ET center, but we decided on a different arrangement in our Gentleman's Parlor so the piece is now used as decor storage in the Ladies Parlor. I've yet to stain

    Thanks! Were thinking of lining the bottom drawer now and were still experimenting on where to put it.

    I can imagine so. I'm glad to know you're getting many projects done. Wow! I know what you mean - there's been things we've

    Thank you April. Glad you didn't laugh at the fact I hung frames before I had pictures to put in them. I've gotten a few strange looks.

    You're very welcome! :) Nah, not at all. It's good space planning. Sometimes it's good to just set things where you'd like them to go so you can get a better idea of the overall picture.

    You're welcome.

    I should have know that like minded decorating folks would understand my picture-less frames.

    Hehe, but of course. :) I could probably match that in we've hung curtains that don't even match before reprinting the room. But it helps us to see what a whole new palete looks like.
