TV Armoire to Office Space

Ahhh, the gi-normous TV armoire from days of yore.

 

Since switching to a flatscreen TV on a low, unobstrusive cabinet, the big ol’ Bessy that used to house our old TV has had an identity crisis. First we stored our liquor in it, and had visions of putting up a mirror in the back and adding shelves to hold glassware. The panel in the back had been cut out to allow for the big behind of the old TV. {This is the day we moved when I was cleaning it out so pardon the dust. Okay….I’m really just a horrible housekeeper!}

However, since we moved to our new house I realized this armoire would make a lovely home office for me.

 
All the electronics fit inside, including the printer, the harddrive, and all those ugly wires. 
 
 
 

I’ll utilize the doors as cork or message boards, get some cute accessories and a lamp to jazz up the space, and a rolling keyboard tray to improve functionality. I’m so excited for this project! Thanks for joining me to check out my home office!

See how I eventually turned this armoire into a bar cabinet here!
