"Old" Entertainment Center is "New" again...for FREE!

Not sure what to do with your old entertainment center after buying a newer (& differently sized) TV?  My family and I have really been holding back on spending much for "extras" lately.  However, during the 2010 Black Friday Sales, I was able to find a great deal on a newer TV & we decided to make this our "family" Christmas present.  The new TV is larger and would no longer fit our old entertainment center, so we had to decide if we wanted to buy a new entertainment center (most "good" quality pieces I was looking at were in the $400-$600+ range...and it was just killing me to spend that amount) or make an attempt at hacking up our old one to fit the new TV!

Here's a (slightly corny) video showing what my husband came up with...

I'm loving it!  It meets all of our needs & it didn't cost us a dime!

Have you come up with other ways to use your old entertainment center?  Please share your thoughts & ideas in the comments section below this post!


  1. LOVE this - MUCH cuter in person!
