Scavenging inspiration!

This isn’t my scavenger rehab project, but it’s so impressive that I have to post it. Gregory over at AT:LA found a mangy-looking old stereo cabinet on the side of the road, and totally rehabbed it to the point of gorgeousness over the course of a month. It was gutted, stripped, standed, and stained. The front panel was unsalvageable, so Gregory covered it with these bamboo pulp wall flats. Amazing! Here’s how the cabinet looked BEFORE:

Gregory will be continuing to document the electronic upgrade to the interior of the cabinet at Unplggd, but for now you can take a look at his step-by step process in seven parts:
The Stereo Cabinet #1
The Stereo Cabinet #2 – The Strip Show
The Stereo Cabinet #3 – Enter Sandman
The Stereo Cabinet #4 – No Guts, No Glory
The Stereo Cabinet #5 – House of Stain
The Stereo Cabinet #6 – A Stain In the Neck
The Stereo Cabinet #7 – Moving On
