Domino's SecondHandLogos.com GadgetSponge Repurposed Side Table REVEALJuly 31st, 2013 in member junk
This is my first of at least three different repurposing projects I'm doing in association with Domino's with their secondhandlogos.com campaign. After a lot of cleaning years of dust and grime away, the sign polished up pretty nice. I had the vintage stainless steel table legs for a while just waiting for the right project. Found it! The table legs have self leveling foot pegs to match your surface perfectly! When I started, I had just planned on the Domino's Pizza sign to be just a table. As soon as I started working on it, I realized it would be a shame to waste all of the space on the interior of the sign so I made plans to see how I could finish out the inside along the way. I had the pair of vintage chrome handles in my stashes and they worked perfectly with the industrial, metal vibe allowing you to open up the top lid nicely. Ironically, I found as I was working, I found that the new led for the storage opens like a pizza box! Go figure! There's about 25" both ways across inside for some great storage options. Even after thoroughly gutting and cleaning the sign, it still retains all of the subtle blemishes from years of service. I call it "character." I used some vintage 70s automotive trim to accent the base of the sign/table. Some fabrication was involved to create the corner protector pieces. If you follow GadgetSponge, you know I've got to sneak in yardsticks or measuring sticks whenever possible. I thought they worked great to floor the base of the storage area. I framed up the interior measuring sticks with some more of that vintage automotive trim. The MEASUREMENTS are: 36" tall by 26" wide and 26" deep. You can see more pictures on my blog listing for this project.
