Old TV turned into dog bed

A couple years ago I drove by a house that was throwing away an old tv that sat on the floor. I had seen posts on the internet of turning these tvs into pet beds or shelves so I decided to go back with my wife and load it into my truck and take it home.

After I got it home I worked on it for several days and had to rip the insides out, but being careful not to shock myself in the process.

After everything was out I simply painted it and made a mattress from an old cushion and a blanket.

That was a wonderful idea. Excellent job. 😆

I hope that people will save some of these TVs.
Since they are old (vintage/antique) (and probanly rare), they could worth a lot of money.
Especially if they are in working condition.

Have tested the TV before ripping out? If yes, then was it in working condition? If yes, then a collector probably would have paid a lot of money for it.

I am not a collector, and I currently do not know any collectors. I am just curious.

I did not test it because I knew what I wanted to do with it. Also it was sitting on the side of the road in the weather for awhile, and I didn’t know if water had gotten into it.

Hola @cryptolaird, dejame felicitarte porque haz realizado una gran obra. Estoy enamorada de tu creación. Eso de transformar y dar nueva vida y uso a las cosas viejas me parece algo maravilloso que todos y todas deberíamos poner en practica. Sin duda solo es necesario tener una visión con propósito y voluntad para crear.
