Radio Cabinets are My Favorite!

I love repurposing old radio/record cabinets.
They have such style and character, and I love making them useful again.
This one was especially fun to do because my 12 year old son worked with me.
We gutted it together, then he built the shelves and attached the back.
There's our cat, investigating this new possible napping spot...

We left some nicks and gouges as a reminder of it's rough and rowdy past...

Painted in ASCP Country Grey, with a waxed finish.

It would make a nice media cabinet/TV stand, entryway piece, or book shelf.
The possibilities are endless!

Industrial Style Coffee Table

What do YOU do with an old wood tool box?
After cleaning this one up and waxing all the wood,
it seemed natural to add metal caster wheels to increase the functionality.
It suddenly became a prospective coffee table, side table, toy box, blanket chest, photo prop...
What else can you imagine?

It's dimensions are 32" long, 16" wide, and 14" tall.
This piece is now SOLD.
Have a lovely day!

Telephone Chairs are so Cool!

Not only is it a chair, but it's a table too... How cool is that?
This one is a hip mid-century style, painted in ASCP Graphite.

Here is a picture before...
ah, dang! I forgot to take one!
Trust me, it looks much better! ;)
