I've got an old 90's tv. Big black and clunky. Not quite sure how to make it look pretty without ruining it. I'm afraid glue will somehow seep into the cracks. Maybe not though? haha. Anyway if you've got ideas please tell me Smiley Oh my room is old school rock themed so something along those lines would be sweet. Or just colorful. I'm a big color freak.

if it still works, i'd try modge podge or something with fabric (not over the vent though)
if it doesn't work, take out the screen and make a terrarium. Smiley

Paint it.
We used to have an old refrigerator that we painted in big splashy rainbow stripes.
Take an album cover, or your favorite band and reproduce it. Emphasize every little feature with paint, like those old Victorian houses.
There is also a chalkboard paint you could use to turn the whole thing into a chalkboard.

Messing about with CRT's in TV's and monitors can be VERY DANGEROUS. Don't try and remove it unless you know what you're doing.

you could build a box out of foamcore and decorate that. Just leave enough room or have a hole for the heat to vent out. Then decorate the foamcore however you like.

Will the modge podge ruin it? Cause it still works just fine.

As far as I know, Modge Podge is just glue. I'd test a little inch somewhere that it won't show if it messes up the paint.
