I was in the middle of refinishing a vintage turntable, when I realized I might not be able to update the speaker fabric without damaging the speaker itself! 😬 so I thought to myself, I wonder if I can just paint it?!

check out my Instagram page!

Before and after 👌

I redid the outside of the turn table, I sanded it all down and re stained it. Than coated it with a water based poly clear coat.

I put painters table around the wood of the speaker to make sure I didn’t get any black paint on what I had already done!

I than added ultra grip by Fusion Mineral Paint to the speaker and let it dry.

After the clear coat dried, I added coal black to the speakers!

Thankfully fusion mineral paints dry time is super fast!

Here you have it! A very freshly up cycled vintage turn table 🤗😍
