For years I've been trying to talk my in-laws into a bigger tv. They had a 32" as their main living room TV build into a little cabinet. I wanted to hang a new tv on the wall, but they didn't want to move furniture around. I always said I could blow out their cabinet to fit a bigger tv, but they said no. Since Black Friday has started already I talked them j to a 55" and promised them I could easily make it fit in the cabinet. Here's the result.
Before. Should have taken a pic with the tv in there and the other cabinet door on. The 32 looked pretty small in there.
After. 55" fit perfectly. At first I wanted them to go 60+ and I would knock out both cabinets, but I'm glad we went with this instead.
I had bought some steel square tubing to refinance the top since I took out a support, but after taking it out and basically jumping on the top, I decided it wasn't necessary. For sure would have if I took both out.
Also, they wanted me to say the carpet is coming out in a few weeks so don't judge them on it.
