GadgetSponge-Styled Vintage RCA Victor Radio

Fresh from the GadgetSponge Garage is this one-of-a-kind vintage radio.  It doesn't work but it's got all original parts that I gutted, repaired, cleaned up and put back together.  It's got several coats of Annie Sloan chalk paints and is finished in the Annie Sloan clear wax.  I also added a back panel that isn't standard on the original model.  

This custom item, along with my other creations, is available in the GadgetSponge Etsy Shop and at Timeline Antiques in Shreveport, LA!
