i just found an old sony color t.v. with a 13" screen. i want to use it as some kind of decoration, but i can't think of what to put in it. the only thing i could come up with was a miniture dinosaur diarama. any suggestions?

If it's one of those older style ones, with the wooden sides, you could always take the guts of the TV out, and out a fish tank inside, with a light so at night time you could have fishy TV!
Or if you don't want fish, you could still get a small tank and make a terrarium with small ferns and plants with a light above it also, or a small frog pond, you could keep a weird pet in a tank inside the TV IE: Scorpion etc...tons of ideas!! The older the style of TV the better, they were built to last and look great with tanks insdie them.

Measure the inside of the TV to get the dimensions for a tank to fit inside, you don't want to be able to see the sides of the tank if possible. I'm hoping to do this one day myself, now I just gotta keep looking for that elusive 30+ year old television set LOL

Well it was a good idea at the time.  Undecided

Unless of course she knows someone who is a TV repairman who could rip the TV apart for her?  Shocked

when my tv was briefly showing the "all-snow all-the-time" channel, i was going to turn it into the "big bang theater." i saw this documentary where this astronomer was saying that a certain percentage (i forget how much, but it was pretty low) of the white flashes on the screen are radiation from the big bang. but then my tv started working again (dang it!).

i also saw where somebody put an xray of a skeleton over the screen of a snowy tv, and decorated up the rest of the tv. it was pretty cool. of course this is assuming that you could plug the tv in and get snow on the screen.

thankyou for all of the ideas and especially the warnings. i was going to gut that thing with my screwdriver and a prayer later on tonight but i may just hold out on that for now. the end table may work the best for now.
