Update: I have decided the wood is not great at all, and the guts of the console arn't good either. I have decided I am going to paint it. I am going to paint it red, with black glaze. I think it will be cool. I am also painting my my hallway door like a mustard yellow with black glaze. Pretty excited about this adventure. I am also excited about the fact that I made those words the corresponding color of my text. Cheerio!

She's My Pride and Joy
I have been working on Adam's Halloween costume which has turned out to be more work than I first thought. I had to go to Burlington to get some advice, then decided to go to Recycle North because I was in the neighborhood. I was so excited to see this record player. I have been wanting one for a long time, and this is nothing like what I had pictured. I fell in love with this. I had always planned on painting it black, with tacks around the edge. I am not sure if I am doing that now. The wood is gorgeous on this. It is almost animal striped. The only part that isn't looking great is the top, it is scratched up. I am going to sand and re stain it. I am also going to paint the grill at the bottom silver, and put different material where the record holder and speakers are. I will probably put new hardware on as well. The record player and radio work which is fabulous. I can't wait to get it. Tom will be picking it up within the next couple days. Oh and did I say it was $25.00. HELLO!!!! Here are some pics I took at the store.
