Materials Needed:

  • screw driver
  • drill
  • paint (interior)
  • paint (exterior)
  • door panels
  • wood glue
  • knobs

Step 1

Remove the panels in the cabinet doors—ours were fabric, so we just ripped them out from the inside.

Step 2

Unscrew the lid and the crank on the cabinet’s side and set aside. Then remove the doors’ old knobs and the record player, plus any other old sound equipment.

Step 3

Paint the inside of the cabinet and the underside of the lid a dark color. Let dry, then paint the exterior of the cabinet and top of the lid a light color. Let dry.
