When I inherited this vintage 1970's Juliet record player + speaker system from my father, I was absolutely antsy to buy a TON of records. I was so happy to have something vintage that used to belong to my father because most of the neat vintage I had was from my mother. However, the wood used when making the speakers was very sticky and hard to pick up for that reason. It was unappealing altogether. The color of the wood also left something to be desired, so I decided to give them a little make-over.
Supplies Needed: your speakers, paint of your choice to coat the speakers with, paint for your details on the speakers, a large paint or foam brush, smaller brushes, a cup of water, a paint palette, and newspaper to avoid making a mess.
1. Place your speakers under the newspaper and coat them with your base layer of paint (you may also need a second coat!)
2. Draw on your designs lightly with a pencil
3. paint your designs on your speakers and let it dry!
I hope you enjoyed this DIY and please send any photos of your decorated speakers to me via polly AT paulieantiques DOT com♥. I'd love to feature them!
