Do you have one of these monster pieces of furniture sitting around that your new flat screen television doesn’t fit into?
Don’t know what to do with it?
These television armoires were really popular before flat screens came out and a lot of us have them sitting around and you can find lots of them on Craigslist and thrift stores for pretty cheap. Don’t get rid of it just yet or pass by that one there in the thrift store. Just searching Craigslist today, I found two that are listed for under $75.
With just a few adjustments, you can make it a very useful piece of furniture in your home.
Need an office, but don’t have an extra room in the house? Put in a pull-out shelf (some already have them) and add some pretty boxes for storage, then add a bulletin board to the inside of the door and presto-change-o, you have an office that you can close up when not in use. I love the color they used inside this one. A great little office space.

Don’t have a craft room but need a space to keep all your supplies organized? Paint it a pretty color, add a few shelves and make a craft armoire. I like all the labeled bins in this one. Great way to organize everything.
Need extra storage space in the kitchen or don’t have a pantry. Fill it up with pots and pans, all those kitchen appliances or all your canned goods.

And, what girl wouldn’t love this! Room for all her jewelry, makeup, hair stuff, and clothes below. A great use for an old tv cabinet, right?

One more…How cute is this? What a perfect changing table this makes for a nursery.
Now, drag that big old thing up out of the basement and don’t just walk by that big ol’ monster of possibility in the store. Make it work for whatever your home is in need of…an office, a craft room, a pantry or whatever else you can dream up.
