GadgetSponge @ Home: The Custom Cypress Crawfish Party Table

Heather recently sent a pic of her custom GadgetSponge creation -- the cypress crawfish-themed party table (HERE).  I always enjoy posting my creations in their new home.  So, if you have a GadgetSponge creation, please send a pic of it in your home and I'd be glad to share it with everyone else!

Heather also bought the recent custom upcycled Nightstand / Mirror piece (HERE).

Custom Triple-Locker Bookcase! 

Here's another locker-inspired bookcase that I finished recently.  The doors wouldn't open up so I had to cut them off and then I decided to make them into a bookshelf or storage shelf system with a place to hang many items, like coats, in the middle.  The vintage wire locker baskets up top, the vintage gauge sticks on the front of the custom shelves and more bring it all together!

Custom Singer Sewing Machine Base Wall Shelf with Yardsticks and Gym Wire Locker Baskets!

Yo!  Here's some goodness fresh from the GadgetSponge Garage!  I've been struggling for about as long as I've been repurposing trying to figure out how to use the individual parts of an antique Singer sewing machine base.  I plan to have a great idea for all the parts before I done!  Here's a shelf I just finished using a couple of the center supports...

 

I use the vintage wire gym locker baskets a good bit because folks really like them and they look COOL!

The front connection point on each Singer sewing machine base piece stuck out too much for my tastes so I cut them off and ground them down.

You KNOW I've got to have a yardstick in there!  I also used a vintage piano music sheet support as the stop for the locker baskets.  And you can see my little metal nameplate down there that I put on all my creations.

Measurements:

22" tall; 36" wide; 21" deep

This table will be available in my ETSY SHOP (HERE) soon.  It can be seen in person at one of these three locations:

Repurposed Vintage Red Locker Storage Bench

I've got a lot of catching up to do, so I'll continue the highlights on my most recent creations.

Here's the next -- It started with just the door and front frame of a vintage locker.  I built the box and added baseboards for a finished look.  I enclosed the bottom box and gave it a special door at the original locker bottom.   I gave it a complete, custom paint job and added a metal ornamental piece on the front that I was saving for just the right project.  For the bench back, I used some sides from vintage Singer sewing machine bases.  Old casters make the whole piece mobile!....
