then we removed all the electrical plugs that were there for DVD players and such.
Where the large hole was in the back of the Armoire (For large T.V’s.) I had some toile black and white fabric left over from some other project and used a staple gun to attach it all around to cover the hole and make a pretty background.
I think it turned out great!
I then had my cute hubby put in one shelf.
But then I decided that two shelves would be better… so he installed a second shelf.
It holds all my extra glasses, holiday dishes, odds and ends perfectly.
All the drawers and cupboards below hold my napkins, placemats, chargers and tablecloths.
With just a little bit of work I now have great storage for all my goodies.
I am participating in Tablescapers Where do you keep it
You are so clever. I can' believe how many entertrainment type things I've passed up because I didn't know what to do with them to make them useful. Great, great idea.
I see I am not the only one that converted a tv armoire into a dish cupboard! They hold so much more than the kitchen cabinets. Thanks for the idea of using it for my stemware…now to find one at a reasonable price!
Have a great weekend.
The best thing you did was to marry that handy man! I like your storage idea. Please come see mine.

Adding another shelf was a good idea. Great way to use that piece.
Joanne Kennedy says
This is a great idea! Wish I had one to store all my stuff in. With so many people getting the bigger HD TV's more and more of these are showing up at the thrift stores. Smart people like you come up with clever ideas to use them for.
