Repurposed 40’s Philco Radio

Repurposed Furniture / Storage / Old Radio
CHALLENGE

Old radio/music centers from the past are built with some beautiful wood and repurposing this old 40’s Philco Radio created a beautiful storage repurpose.

SOLUTION

First, you gut the old radio and record turntable. Then the speaker was removed. The cabinet areas of these pieces were reinforced with new bottoms. We swapped out some hardware and added new Vintage style pie safe tins for accent. The top was stained with Expresso and the body painted with Dixie Belle Paint in Drop Cloth.

RESULT

Even though this old repurposed radio does not make a sound, it speaks loudly as a beautiful accent for any room with perfect storage space.
