Upcycled Nightstand Record Cabinet w/ Light

Hey folks!  Been busy working in the garage and with Shreveport Salvage but I do have a few creations that are new to post.  Here's one of the latest.   My wonderful daughter wanted something to store her record collection in and I knew exactly what to do.  She had limited space so I remembered doing a design before that was very vertical and didn't take up much space (HERE).   But, of course, it had to be different and totally unique.  So here's what I came up with....

I started with a great, little vintage nighstand and went vertical from there....

An old car emblem adorns the top of the nightstand.  Ties in well with how my beautiful daughter has transformed into an awesome young woman.

A record collection is all about displaying your favorite albums at certain times and enjoying the album art.  So, I made these side display racks with old toy train tracks and building blocks.

Up top, a vintage tail light housing serves as the location for the light switch.  Behind it is a vintage wood clock body, a vintage flashlight and finally a lamp body piece route the power cord to the back.

I had been saving this awesome glass rod light for a special project and this was the perfect project.  On the back I mounted some vintage tin.

I left the drawers to the nightstand natural for some great warmth and contrast.

Some decorative, punched tin surrounds the light canopy.

A new LED bulb that looks like a standard bulb lights up the piece.

Measurements:  Height 78"; Width 18"; Depth 23"
