I bought this tv/music console thinking it would be a great addition to our den as I don't like a total mess when it comes to my entertainment stuff. My wife likes organisation way more than I do! So after I filled this up with records CD's and DVD in the side compartments I found in order to find anything I had to get on my hands and knees with a flashlight and pick through for a selection. No good!
I had an idea! I switched out the console for an old antique portable altar for the tv stand and I built some stained pine sides on the top of the console so I could access my vinyl as I would in a record shop way back when. I still have a couple of details to finish but it's basically finished. This actually makes it fun to flip through too find my selection.
It was cheap to do and has solved my storage issue for good.
