Jonas secretary into a TV cabinet

Materials: Jonas Secretary, L brackets

Description: We removed the back, front door/desk surface, and the top drawer. We used the L brackets to secure the former door/desk where the top drawer used to be to support a dvd/vcr. We also used some L brackets to keep the unit steady, since it was a bit wobbly.

I also decoupaged “princess” wrapping paper inside the two remaining drawers, since this is for our 3 year old daughter.

    How big (tall) is the cubby space on that unit?

    Nice Hack! It totally looks like it was manufactured to be a dresser/ TV mount!
