Depending on your age you might remember having a console TV when you were growing up. They were big televisions with a wood case built around them and were considered a piece of the furniture. Times and TV’s have changed but you can still find these at thrift stores, which we did. This one was $20 and it worked! We decided to give this old TV a modern look for our living room. It’s used solely for gaming. This is part of our “Buff Your Stuff” series where you take old things and make them new! You might especially enjoy our makeover, Refurbishing Furniture with Modern Colors.
Console TV Makeover Supplies
- White and yellow paint
- Silver paint for handles
- Painters tape
This is the $20 TV we found at Salvation Army.
We chose our colors and then taped off areas. The main console was white and we used yellow as a contrast. The gold handles were removed and painted silver.
This is how it turned out!
It’s the perfect gaming TV.
