What to do with a no longer needed TV armoire/cabinet?
We had a very nice Henredon TV armoire
that was part of our wall unit so I didn't
want to get rid of it.
We said goodbye to our last tube TV.
That now left a big empty space.
Empty spaces don't stay empty very long in
my house. I managed to fill it with
a collection of stuff in no time.
Not a very good use of space.
I thought adding shelves would make this a
great storage cabinet for some of my
seasonal glasses and mugs. I also found the
back panel for the TV cut-out in the garage
when we were searching
for wood for the side and shelves.
We used 3/4" MDF for the project,
because that's what we had in the garage.
Nothing is nailed into the cabinet. The shelves
just rest on slats that hold the sides in place.
We can remove it anytime. We used the
trimmed-off pieces of the MDF shelves for
the slats. Nothing ever wasted here!
Loaded it up and still have room to spare!
The space is 40"W and 24" D. The four
shelves (counting the bottom) give about
26-2/3 square feet of shelf space or the
equivalent of 26-2/3 feet of regular kitchen
cabinet shelves. In other words...Lots!
All behind closed doors.
I love projects like this:
*very little time
*very little skill
*use up stuff in the garage
*lots of organization and storage!
