So how this project came about was that my wife had come home from the local Goodwill and said to me, "honey, don't shoot me... I have an idea" with those words it had me a little worried what we were getting into, and then I saw it. A 1975 Quasar Console TV sitting in the back of her car. As I unloaded it, I began to ask questions.. how much did you pay for this? and most importantly, what are we gonna do with it? She begins to tell me that she has seen where other people online has made a Dog Bed out of old TV's and she thought "why not, and it's only $5 for this thing, let's give it go!" and that is usually how our "projects" normally start, my wife has a vision of what it CAN be, and I am there to run all the power tools to get from start to finish. So what you see here in this project is something that didn't have a life anymore and we ripped all the guts out of it and created something for our four legged family member to relax in on those hot summer days here in Arkansas.

  • This really turned out great. Love that you were able to turn something that was probably bound for a landfill into something really useful again. It's not only creative, but it's a really good-looking piece of furniture- so much better than a plain ol' dog bed. Excellent work!

  • This was an incredible use of that old TV and a wonderful project for your furry family member!
