This is so excellent!  Old TVs are so versatile.  I've been wanting to get one and do the standard 'fishtank' thing, but this is so much more creative and, frankly, useful. 

I can't wait to try it!

Awesome idea! Kitty litter boxes are so ugly, it's nice to be able to hide them away.

In case you were wondering, gutting TV's, especially retro sets, is incredibly dangerous and should only be done by a professional. Home respirators do not offer enough protection against the small particulate matter than can be dislodged. Also, older sets used lead, which makes them incredibly hazardous to not only you, but improper disposal of "tv guts" is disastrous for the environment. Finally, older sets used different electrical components than newer sets, and sometimes they are not labeled properly- a potential for electrocution. If you are planning on doing this, check to see if your county has an electronics collection to see if they could remove the innards for you.

I don't mean to chastise you, I really love your creation and it's an amazing way to cover an ugly object. Just be safe in the future : )

 I would have just made the thing into a stage for puppet shows or something dumb but your idea is pure genius! Seriously, this has to be one of the best ideas I've seen in a really long time  Cheesy. It's making me wonder what other odd things can be turned into incognito litter housing.
