Vintage TV - But is it really HD?

I bought an early 1950's wooden TV cabinet yesterday. It cost me $1. I intend to cut down the depth and then mount a 13" flat screen monitor in the space. I will connect the power so that the old knob will turn on the monitor and the computer speakers will play through the old speaker grill. I'm not sure that I will get it all to work properly, but at least I have a plan.

I also have a very nice picture 27" Mitsubishi color TV with a very 80's faux wood cabinet. I have contemplated shabotaging the case a nice shabby red. Any thoughts on the effort?

I second would be better for shabby. Sounds like a fun project and will look forward to pictures.
