I am old enough to remember when almost everyone had one of these. Pretty much every living room in America used one wall for the television console. We even had a stereo console that filled the other half of the wall. Then the consoles started fading out and we used our non working consoles as stands for the newer TV’s to sit on.
The TV my folks had first was till in black and white, or maybe the programming was still in black and white. I know all I watched on TV was in black and white. I still like the way some of these old TV consoles look and I like aquariums so if I decide to have an aquarium I might go find a console TV to do this project. For anyone into the vintage look this is a pretty simple diy to turn a vintage TV into an aquarium shared by Wiki How.
