What's something creative to do with my old 4:3 TV set? Answered

I've got an old 26" standard definition TV. Nobody will buy it, and it feels like a waste to throw it out. Any ideas for turning it into something cool? I was thinking of removing the tube and making it into a fish tank or a terrarium...

If you don't know what you are doing, then don't.

if you find two more, you could hook up a vcr to them all playing the same video signal but change the color output on them to be red, green and blue (one red, one green, one blue) and then play the video during parties. I saw it done at a party once and thought it was pretty cool

That's what I did with mine if it gives you any ideas. It is tough to find someone that would want to play with the high voltage electronics inside though. Good luck.
