  1. Karen, you most definitely rock that super hero cape, lol

    Love the cape!!

  3. Catherine says:

    Funny lady–I can totally see the cape!
    You’d be so proud of me–I went dumpster diving behind a favorite store that just closed. I scored a super cool (and old) industrial scale!
    In any case–you were totally on my mind while I was in there! ; D

    • GTC says:

      Oh Catherine, I am SO proud of you!! I can’t believe you found an old industrial scale! That is one thing is always on my list. What a great find. Thanks for taking me along in spirit 🙂

    Hey, Karen. Good save! Love the idea. Right now we have a plastic black and acrylic chest that hubby bought many years ago for all our electronics. None of the stuff is even used anymore. I have a turntable that I’d like to have out so I can use it, but it’s stuffed away somewhere. Don’t know why. Anyway, I’d love to find a cabinet like this to put my turntable in, and to store the records. How cool ! What kind of vinyl does your hubby like ? or you? And…. what exactly is bleeding through ? and why ? Thanks bunches. Love the cape.

      Hey Patty! Start looking on Craig’s list or local free cycle sites for that Vintage Cabinet, you might be surprised how abundant they can be. Re Vinyl, we have a wide variety of tastes, we both love Jazz, some good stuff fro the 80’s, I bought 2 classic Police albums lately, late 70’s Elton John, I found a Captain Fantastic album at the shop I mentioned. It’s pretty eclectic, but luckily our tastes are pretty similar. We depart at The Grateful Dead. Suffering Husband can play that all he wants when I am not around!

      • Patty Soriano says:

        ooops….most important question wasn’t answered….. what exactly is bleeding through and why ? Thanks, Karen! We both love Elton John and have all his early records (husband’s collection). I was more into Elvis and Dan Fogelberg!

  5. MJ says:

    You make me think I could make over a cabinet like this. Have passed up on so many of them! Maybe not the next time. You did a great job and deserve your super hero cape. Just so long as you don’t try flying in it!!! XXX

    • GTC says:

      You can make one over MJ! Thank you so much for your sweet words. I will definitely not try to fly with the cape. I don’t think it is that powerful! haha

  6. Florence says:

    Karen, I love your makeover. That cabinet rocks now! Love the moniker “Suffering Husband” too. Isn’t that the truth? I could call mine that!

    • GTC says:

      Hi Florence, thank you! We are so enjoying that Stereo Cabinet makeover! Oh so true that my husband is ever patient, and ever suffering, lol! Thank you for coming by 🙂

    Love it! Looks great! I’m not sure how common vinyl players are today but it still looks amazing.

  8. […] To replace the Glass inserts in the Cabinet Doors, I turned to one of my favorite tricks for filling in cabinet door frames.  More Luon Wood.  I used the same trick with Vintage Stereo Cabinet Makeover, you can check that project out HERE.  […]
