Repurposed Stereo ConsoleMay 14th, 2010 in member junk
Last Friday I was out garage saleing and came upon this stereo console. Previously in a magazine I had read, someone had redone a cabinet into a wine/buffett. I thought I might want to do something like that. And here was my chance. The lady of the house said the price is right! Make us a offer. I did. They excepted $20.00. This cabinet was HEAVY. It took 4 people to heave it into my truck. When I got home, I knew I was in trouble. When taking it out of my truck, my husband said,"What did you buy this thing for?" Of course I explained, you just wait, it's going to look great. You'll see...After taking all the stereo equipment, speakers out, sanding and 4 cans of spray paint and a quart of swan sea blue enamel. This is how it turned out.
Why I liked it: I thought it had a great shape to it. It's made of real hardwood! The speakers had cool curved iron detail in the front. Lot of potential! It could hold a big screen TV on top or under the top you could mount a small flat screen. Storage for DVD player in cabinet underneath. Or I could make it a wine cabinet with wine stored on the sides and glasses in the cabinet, and maybe a little cooler in the cabinet.
