  • Without seeing it, it's a little hard to tell you the best method. After removing the old shelves, you will need to have glass cut to the same size. Supports will also have to be installed for the glass.

    Hi Lori,

    Do you have a picture of your tv stand you could share, without seeing what you are starting with it is near impossible to offer you good ideas?

    Basically, if your shelves just lift out, then replace them with glass. If they are solidly in there, it wold involve cutting them out, making a support or installing brackets and setting glass shelves in the place of the wood.

    Can you give us a little more information about your goals in doing this?

    Would you like to make the stand into something else, or by 'redo' are you referring to refinishing so that it looks new again?

    You can paint it. Remove the glass shelves, if possible, or cover with newspaper and painter's tape. Then you are ready to clean with tsp, prime, and paint.

    Hi Lori: You could use some dark stain on the wood and maybe put some battery operated tea lights in the back and then some decorative objects on the glass.
