Pimp Your TV: The Sequel

Every TV needs a hood ornament

I have pimped my TV a couple of times in the past (see Pimp Your Television), but the creations eventually get cannibalized for some other project. This time around I was inspired by a wander through the Depot for Creative Reuse in Oakland, where disparate finds included WWII-vintage sheet music, old ivory piano keys complete with mechanism, and a baggie of faux jewels, all for under $3 total. The obvious project occurred: a music-themed TV.

Some day this old dinosaur will die, and with it I will lose all that lovely surface area that you just don't get with a flat screen TV. Meanwhile, the fun continues.
