Antique Record Cover Side Table

I decided to repurpose this little side table to add a vintage/shabby chic feel, and to create something that brought the old and the new together to provide useful storage and a talking piece.

So I applied a genuine antique Brunswick record cover to the top with Modge Podge and 2 coats of clear varnish to protect it.

Then using the back of the record cover, I cut out some interesting adverts for Brunswick and using Modge Podge again, I created some cute little tags for the cane drawers which I attached with twine.

So much more interesting.  I love those old record covers and having them there means they can be admired all day.

  1. What a good idea! Spruce up a boring piece and preserve history of the older recording methods for young people who have no clue!

  2. I like it! The tags are a great touch. Oh the history, love the history. Were there drawers before? I'd like to see the couch too. It looks tres chic! I found you at "At the Picket Fence" - Inspiration Friday. Hope you'll come by and see me at Quirky Vistas.

  3. That's a beautiful transformation Julie. Sometimes it is really hard to part with these gorgeous make-overs.

    Hope you can join in on Shabbilicious Friday again this week.

  4. That adds such a unique flavour to your piece! The tags are a cute touch, too.

  5. What a great little table! Did you DIY that lampshade too - it's super cute!

  6. Beautiful! I love the blend of the natural baskets and the white wood. Love it :) Tanya

  7. Julie! This is so cute! I have a few old records I scored at a thrift store and they are just waiting for a good project. Thanks for linking up at Get Schooled Saturday:)

  8. I just LOVE the way this looks!! I know I would love to try to recreate it, but with my luck, I'd never find 2 baskets that would fit the drawer openings or even the right table itself.
