A few weeks ago we were looking through our recyclables for another craft project. I noticed the butter container and immediately thought of a Retro style TV for the dolls. I know that 50’s Diners don’t typically have TV’s in them, but we have decided to add one on our bar top. So, since it’s in our diner, we made it part of the diner series! It is so crazy easy to make! One of my favorite features is making the lid the TV screen and having multiple screen options! So cool! Also, we did not add legs since it will be on the counter, but you can always add the 50’s style legs to it. I also had the thought that when we make Maryellen’s TV Console, we might just make an opening so we can slip this TV into place.

- You can use regular buttons for the knobs, but I like the ones with the backs because they look more like TV knobs.
- Save up several lids that way you can make several interchangeable screens.
