The coolest thing I ever saw was an old friend turned the TV part into an aquarium! Kind of like this one, but it wasn't just a TV,
Yes, we turned one into a liquor cabinet by removing the record player.
Yes I have done several. Here is one I converted to a bar!
Yes ... Gutted the stereo, etc. .... Topped it with a China cabinet topper (from a budget shop) ... The 'stereo' area (below the topper) is filled with larger items (casseroles, platters, etc.). Beautiful piece! pp
I sold it once. But you can use it as a beautiful piece of furniture. I had it in our previous home and sold it while we moved.
Yes, what specific questions do you have?
Do you want to flip it?
What tools & skills do you have?
This is what I did with mine, my grandpa's old stereo cabinet made the perfect island for me :) https://www.hometalk.com/43856972/lace-doily-upcycling-on-my-radio-stand-kitchen-island
