New life to an old record player/stereo cabinet


Bought & redid an old stereo/record player cabinet that still works believe it or not! We replaced the speakers that were dry rotted, sanded it, painted it, replaced the fabric over the speaker covers, hand painted the hardware that couldn't be removed & this is the end result!

    I love what you have done!!! I have one that was passed down to me.... Haven't started working on it yet... The speaker covers are torn up.... What kind of material did you use?

      Sorry. I just saw your post. I used burlap with the medallion print already on it. Good luck redoing yours! It's a fun project!

    How did you replace the fabric if the cabinet doors are all faux?

    Does this still function as a stereo? If not what have you done for the inside

      @Shannonstringer19 You should be able to get speakers at sonicelectronix.com. I got very nice replacement speaker for an old Infinity stereo set and replaced the old one easily. Just look at the back of your speaker for the specs and supply them to Sonic, prices are reasonable too. Good luck.
