Remember the cool retro record cabinet we used to have? I was looking through photos to add to this post and thought I’d throw things waaaaaay back to our beloved painted cabinet. If you remember, it was a $25 vintage score from the Habitat Restore in our old hometown that, sadly, never quite fit in our new home. We just ran out of logical room for it, so I had to sell it. The good news, though, is that it found a very happy home with a local gal who seemed to really appreciate the cabinet’s refurbished retro charm.
Do you have a Craigslist piece that you regret selling? This might just be my one…Scroll on for some equally cool retro refurbish projects that I’ve come across on the web, plus a few new pieces that we’re thinking about adding to our collection.
