Our first TV as a couple was same this one. It was a wedding gift from my FIL. The tv went bad several years later. NC my hubby took out the innards and added doors. We have our flat screen sitting on top and I keep blankies and small workout things in the cabinet.
I'm loving these ideas!! The pet one won't work for me because my dogs are way to big! Diana, I love the hutch one. It's absolutely gorgeous! I am now thinking of going with something along that line! I'm not sure if I just want shelves or if I want doors.
We haven't yet. Things have become crazy and it went back down to the bottom of the list. Hopefully by next spring/summer we will be ready. Also we still aren't sure what we want to do yet. I really like your idea of a cocktail bar!
