Get a retro look without buying a whole appliance!

We have been trying something new at Retro Revival! Wall art made from refrigerator doors! Check out this Guinness themed door we made especially for an Irish festival we did a few weeks ago. The door came from a parts fridge. A perfect way to up-cycle a unit that is no longer functional. This piece is furnished with heavy duty hooks and can be installed on your wall. It's a conversation piece that is sure to add to the festive atmosphere of your pub room, man cave or kitchen.

WWI Footlocker Before and After

When I found this footlocker it was covered completely with this hideous brown stain.

I sandblasted the whole exterior, used paint stripper, left the brass lock unpainted, added legs and new leather straps. Painted in pale yellow and grey trim. Tons of storage inside!
