TV Armoire Makeover

Your old tube TV may have gone to the curb, but that bulky armoire it used to sit in still has plenty of road miles. Here's how to give the old piece of furniture new life.

See what you can do with a bulky tv armoire now that your old tubes set is long gone. [MUSIC] With the doors removed, sand down the piece and remove any dust, fill in any scratches and dents with wood putty. Prime the armoire so the paint will adhere better. Once the primer is dry, paint away with a color that coordinates with your decor. And do the same thing to the doors. Remove the hardware, and sand, wipe down, prime, and paint. Install new shelves to maximum the storage space inside the armoire. Pick shelf paper that matches the paint. Give the armoire a final bit of flair with new hardware. Use poles on one set of doors and add coordinating knobs on the other doors, and don't be afraid to remove anything decorative. Our piece had dated trim on the bottom, so we removed it, added a board, and painted it like the rest of the armoire [MUSIC] And now your armoire is ready for storage. the roomy storage cabinet works well for storing bedroom extras like pillows, blankets, books, and jewelry. With these tricks and a basic makeover, an old TV armoire can be stylish storage for what you need to house now. [MUSIC]
