While not exactly Bang & Olufsen's Advanced Sound System®, this is a photo of a record player, CD player, AM/FM radio and two AM radios...
M Y C O L L E C T I O N — The Ford Model T, left, and Rolls Royce roadster, right, are both vintage AM radios. I was given the RR in 1972 for Christmas, and I found the Ford at a flea market, made by the same manufacturer as the RR. They are sitting on a wooden-covered record player, which I've painted (of course!).
The original record player case was a horrendous pale wood with palm tree decals on it, but was just about the only record player I could fin ten years ago in my price range. It also includes an AM/FM radio and CD player. As soon as I took it out of the box, I sanded it and applied this paint treatment. The top of it is a painting I call "Follow the Yellow Brick Road" and the rest of the case is an antiqued dark green and gold finish. The painting is in my style, where I sand the painting when I'm done and there are several clearcoats on the top of it. The wood is similarly finished by sanding the paint off the corners and wherever normal wear and tear may have worn an original finish away, then protected under at least five coats of polyurethane.
The daisy knob is actually original, but finished in a tacky bright-gold color. After I picked out the flower with white paint on a blue background, I dipped it in a walnut-colored stain and then wiped off most of it, giving it the look of a much older casting. It really is the detailing that counts. Even though the record player is a functional "modern" piece of sound equipment, I consider it one of my pieces of art anyway. As I've mentioned, and illustrated, on this blog before, I'll paint anything that doesn't get out of my way! (Yes, this photo should be part of my Dust Chronicles, too!)
