Upcycled Industrial Cart Coffee Table

12 Dec

One off industrial style coffee table on wheels. Base is a very old steel cart/dolly. Heavy steel base with nice patina, rusty colored finish. Has 4 heavy duty casters, one on each corner and rolls around with ease. Steel frame serves as the base as uses original rough cut wood in original finish and patina. Steel risers were made and welded to the base to support the top, which is attached with 4 carriage bolts. Top surface is a nice piece of reclaimed wood which was recently salvaged. Appears to be a section of an old work bench. Very nice heavy duty wooden top, approximately 1″ thick slats which was lightly sanded, stained with Early American stain and finished with multiple coats of Minwax Antique finish. Original patina and wear was intentionally preserved.

Very nice, original statement piece with room below to store your magazines, books, etc.

1920s Upcycled Table Lamp / Cast Iron & Copper

5 Mar

IMG_3483 IMG_3484

This is an Eagle brand 1920’s vintage table lamp / radiant heater. These were originally used as small space heaters during the early 20th century. The original coil heating element is included and screws in to the standard socket to also function as a heater. We removed the heating element and replaced it with a vintage Edison style filament bulb for a warm, dramatic effect. Any standard based bulb will fit, however. The lamp’s base is made of heavy cast iron and the shade and cage are both made of copper. The light was cleaned and the copper lightly polished but still retains all of its original patina. Original cloth covered wire was kept, but the plug was replaced with a vintage reproduction.

Very cool and unique piece of history and makes a great addition to your office, living room, etc.

Available in our Etsy shop.

Size: 14″ diameter 19.5″ tall
