Repurposed Wrought Iron Table

2 Aug

I picked up this piece of rusty gold at an estate sale recently. Really old and really rusty wrought iron folding stand. Not sure of its origin, but its pretty ornate. Flower details on the pivot points where the frame folds up. Was missing whatever used to be the surface. I brought it home gave it a few coats of white paint. I had a left of piece of nice hardwood that I had used recently on a coffee table. You may remember, it’s some kind of exotic hardwood that was used as a pier plank that my dad had planed down about 30 years ago. Sanded it up, stained and sealed it. It fit perfect. This piece would make a cool accent table in the house or a perfect plant stand on your patio. The wood has withstood years and years of abuse so it will last for many more years. $40

Vintage Repurposed TV Table

6 Jun

We recently came across this vintage 1949 TeleKing tv set at a yard sale. Aside from the fact that this thing was a completely useless piece of technology by today’s standards, I had to have it. Talked with the owner, went back and forth on the price and eventually stuck a deal. The guy’s father in law was a TV repair man from New Jersey, he passed away a couple years back and he ended up with this old TV as well as tv repairman’s kit -  which we also scored. Anyway, back to the TV. I couldn’t justify having a paper weight this large to sit around the house, so I tried to figure out what I could do with it. Due to the fact that analog tvs are now virtually unusable, I decide to gut the tv and repurpose it as an end table with storage. Kept the cabinet and knobs intact, added some legs, as this was a table top model and I think it turned into a pretty cool table. You definitely won’t find another one like this. SOLD
