A while back I asked for opinions on color combinations for this piece and I'm thrilled with all the votes that came rolling in.

It was love at first sight when I spotted this piece at a local thrift shop.  Just look at her fabulous detail! I could see the potential for new life but I wanted to give her some function as well since the original stereo was missing.  We took it to DeVos Place in Grand Rapids,...
