Yard Sale Junk Meets A Space Saving Decor Idea…. for your small home!

For all you musicians out there, I spotted this cool, simple idea over on pinterest, and might have to give it a…er…..spin sometime. LP Records can be found at thrift shops, yard sales, and flea markers everywhere, and oftentimes they can be as cheap as a quarter- so, why not grab one or two of 'em, in conjunction with a dime-a-dozen mini night stand, and with some adhesive combine the two?

It'd make for a great gift for musicians, or for anyone with a hobby room of "man/woman cave".

This idea especially works well as the nightstand's you'll want to look for are the ones with beat and scratched tops- in other words, the cheapest ones that people otherwise might not want. You'll often find these being thrown away on the side of roads too. Blast the legs with a coat of some colorful spray paint if you'd like, and that's all there is to it.

Best yet, should your record scratch over time, just slap on a little more plastic/vinyl adhesive, and layer on a brand new record.

I personally have an old copy of Ratt's "Out Of The Cellar", and its just begging to become a table…. which I think I'll be doing soon to show you how it came out.
