My daughter needed a clothes hamper for her room so I converted this vintage, non-working Philco Am radio and turntable into one for her.

My colors are lavender, gray, with touches of green and pink, so it won't be identical. A guy on a farm has the radio in his barn and said I could have it for $20. Guess it my move now - great idea - love your ideaa and work Brian! I'll post the finished project when I get it completed. ~Mary~ Posted: 8:31 pm on October 24th
