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!....

Measurements:

37" tall; 79" wide; 12" deep

Crawfish Themed Cypress Party Table

This table sold super fast but I wanted to highlight here as I do everything.  I took an old cypress table, reinforced it and gave it some new life with some vintage ceiling tin, custom painted crawfish, wood treatment and bottle openers...

Overhauled Vintage Chief Trashcan

Hey!  Got a vintage Chief trashcan to reveal.  I found it in an antiques and collectible shop and knew immediately it needed to be reworked and serve the same way it did before.  Check it out!

The center lid lifts up to throw away your trash.  The larger lid opens to change out the trash liner.

The bottom was open with just the support frame.  So I fabricated a nice, solid base out of some wood and the use of some small corner braces.

I finished it off with several coats of clear to give it some richer color and long-lasting protection.  Now, it's ready to start a new life and hopefully last just as long or longer.

Measurements:

31" tall; 20" wide; 20" deep

Upcycled Black Pulpit Bookshelf with Light

Hey everyone!  Here's one of the many things I've completed lately.  I'm so behind on my photo editing and posting everything.  I'll try to get on it!

In the meantime, here's some pics of the upcycled black pulpit bookshelf.  

It started with a very beefy older church pulpit.  The shelves were already in the back which made for a quick idea of it becoming a bookshelf.  I added the baseboards and the vintage lamp.

The decorative accents on the front are super cool and worked well with the distressing.  I used General Finishes milk paint for the black.  It's very black and that's what I wanted.

The top was some really nice oak, I believe.  It is a solid chunk.  I took out the older components for the microphone assembly and wired and added this vintage reading lamp.  Now a large book can be viewed or put on display on the top and enjoyed while standing.

Because of it's size, this piece can hold quite a lot of books.  Or anything else you might choose to display.

Custom Carved Dragonfly Table

Hey folks!  I've got a lot of things I've recently finished so that's the reason why I've been away some.  

So, here's one of the recently finished creations.  After the Eyeglass Carved Table, I was really wanting to carve another design for a table.  I've had another Duncan Phyfe style table base that was begging for some attention.  The other Duncan Phyfe base I had was somewhat broken so I used two of those legs on the Nightstand Mirror creation.

Anyway, here goes!....

 

Here are the measurements...
Height: 31"; Width (side to side): 36".

 

Measurements:  45" wide; 33" tall;  24" deep.
