Re-purposing storage over basement stairs

2 years ago

We live in a midcentury house that has a deep storage in the kitchen, built over basement stairs (see photos). I think the previous owners use this storage as pantry. We remodeled the kitchen and added pantry space elsewhere, so we don't need this anymore.

I'm curious if other people have/had a similar setup and what they have done with it. I understand this was pretty common in houses from the 50s.

We are wondering whether we could build a unit with bookshelves and space to mount a small tv over this old pantry. Looking for ideas and photos. I haven't been able to find anything on line.
