From A Sour Note to “Storing” Up Beautiful Music Once Again


In a past life this old radio cabinet played beautiful music. However by the time I came upon it the sweet sound of big band bliss had hit a more than sour note.
The tubes and speaker were long gone. The finish was in bad shape and the fabric speaker screen torn beyond repair.
But the lines on the cabinet were so pretty and I knew it was just gonna take a little effort to get this gem to be playing a whole new kind of tune.
I sanded and painted inside and out in my favorite, light pistachio green. I replaced the old fabric speaker screen with clear glass beads on plexiglass. The two small doors on front have clear glass pulls and open to a lazy susan. I installed casters on bottom to make it easy to rotate to the open back, two shelf storage.
So with just a little ingenuity, sweat equity and as always a song in my heart I turned up the volume and hit replay with this discarded charmer.
