In two and a half weeks I will be moving from my parents to my own apartment. After eight months it is time, and I'm really excited! Because this apartment will be bigger than my last, I have been trying to acquire some more furniture. Because I'm a crafter and a college student, my goal has been to fix up old furniture and save some money in the process. After a sudden bit of inspiration from Pinterest (I feel like so many conversations start that way), I realized I could turn my parents old 1978 RCA console TV into a record player stand.
After recruiting the help of my tech savvy boyfriend, we removed the back of the console, only to reveal this mess:
At which point I said, "Let's do a bit more research before jumping in." Meanwhile my poor service dog cowered under one of my sister's table (a garage sale find):
So this project has been put on a hold for a bit, but hopefully will be resumed either later tonight or tomorrow. Any advice any one might give for dismantling a console tv would be appreciated. :)
