I forgot posting two other projects we made for the office. First, we renovated an old radio that was left by the previous owner. It was collecting dust in the basement for a long time. I forgot to take a picture of it before we started working on it, but it was dusty, really dusty. It is a Lafayette Radio, model C-37, from 1939. It is not in perfect conditions, but it is a nice piece any way. We cleaned, and cleaned, and then cleaned it again. Then we disassembled it, and cleaned everything again.
Pierre set new speakers inside so we can connect modern devices and pretend it is the radio playing. 😉
I also upgraded a little my cork board. It was a very basic one, that I just added some extra to the frame..
.. and covered the cork with burlap.
The seam appears more than I would like, but now covered with pics, notes and whatever you can’t really see it. And it goes much better with the office.
