Today we took a trip up to Silverado Warehouse in Rainbow, California to buy some old wood for a backyard project we had in mind. They’re moving to LA soon so they’re having a pretty crazy sale right now. You can get anything on the property for pretty cheap. Unfortunately, there’s a lot of crap that’s just simply rusted out worthless junk but if you poke around you might just find a little diamond in the rough. We started looking through what was left of the salvaged wood but we weren’t really feelin’ it so we started to head out. As we were leaving caught a glimpse of a couple mid-century pieces. You should know, everything at Silverado is left outside and is pretty weathered. Some of it is under pop-up tents but it’s still outside nonetheless and most of the stuff has seen better days. Anyway, we started examining these mid-century pieces and found out they were actually stereos with record players inside. We really had no interest in whether or not the stereos still worked because we were sure they were toasted, but even though the bodies of the pieces were in pretty rough shape they still looked like they could still have a shot at a second life……with us.
As far as mid-century stereos go we’re pretty sure these aren’t any fantastic or rare models, but they have a great look and for $70 for the pair, it was pretty hard to pass them by. We’ve got some before & after ideas for these pieces which we’ll get to eventually and of course we’ll post them here when they’re complete.
There’s nothing like a couple more projects to keep us busy and pumped up! See you soon!
