I thrifted this vintage 8-track and record player and fell in love with it! It wasn't working when I found it but luckily my husband is a DJ and was able to fix it! Such a unique piece needed a unique finish. I used several chalk paint colors and wet mixed them to get the desired finish. I then used patina products to "age" the piece and green and bronze gilding wax for accents. I covered the mesh over the front speakers with canvas so it wouldn't affect the sound but give a more complete look to the front.
