A tube TV cabinet is literally cut down to size and re-fashioned as the perfect furniture anchor for an upgraded widescreen in this project from Reddit user db89, posted to Reddit's dedicated DIY subreddit.
After removing the top of the old cabinet, db89 cut down the top "cubby" to form a shelf above the drawers below. After adding a partition (from the scrap material) to the larger space to even everything out, the top of the cabinet was re-attached, turning this tube-TV closet into a sleek TV stand.
It's the perfect new spot for an upgraded TV, and it was all done while barely spending a dime. This is what DIY projects are all about — making the old look new again, reusing as much as possible, and keeping waste and costs down.
