People Are Turning Retro TVs Into Trendy Cat Beds

Flat-screen television sets are the norm now and we cannot even remember the last time we saw one with a larger back. Even those of us who do not consider ourselves to be rich might have multiple flat screens in our homes. That just leaves us with one problem that needs to be taken care of: what do we do with our old and played out television sets?

Fortunately, we are here to provide you with the answers that you need, in a timely manner. There’s no need to throw that television away and there aren’t a lot of places that are accepting donations right now. If you happen to come across one of these bad boys, there’s no reason to leave it behind. While there are some who will need to re-purpose the TV they already have, others may want to turn another person’s trash into their treasure.
