I’m not sure if you can tell but I forgot to take a before picture. And I don’t own Photoshop. But I can sure use MS Paint.

So my dad got a new TV that wouldn’t fit in his entertainment center. We were going to build him a new stand then I got to looking at the old one. It used to have a frosted glass door on the side with a hole for the TV on the right.

We just cut off the top section with a circular saw and then reattached the top. Initially there was plans to also cut down the door and the glass and reattach it but that didn’t happen.

Only took about an hour of work and saved a entertainment center from the roadside.

I was reminded of this by PetVet's funny post today. I suppose there are all kinds of options.

Cool. I love reworking exisiting pieces. It looks way better at a smaller height. Plus, Madagascar!
