Ok, its not new. Its actually really old, but it is new to us!
My hubby found this treasure by a curb!
Off-course it didn't always look like this, but I saw the potential it had as soon as I saw it.
The best thing is that it actually works! I have already started picking up records at thrift stores.
Now this beauty stands my living room:
Here is the before.
I am not sure when this was made.
It has no stickers or tags inside.
The top is covered with particle board and the sides are actually plastic.
Look at the nasty red fabric over the speakers, Gross!
I sanded the top and gave the whole thing a good cleaning.
-I gave it one coat of Kiltz primer
-One coat of Crystal Blue by Valspar Signature in Semi Gloss
-I then glazed it with Martha Stewart metallic paint in equal parts of vintage gold and cast bronze.
-Then I gave it three coats of Minwax Water Based Polycrylic Protective Finish
The sound is wonderful!
I have already picked up a few christmas records at Goodwill, I cant wait for the Holidays.
I bought a small sheet of the radiator sheet cover, I think it goes very well with the original hardware (which I gave a good cleaning to)
Thanks for visiting :)
