It's an old radiogram and we estimate it to be approximately from the 60s.
The best bit?
It was FIVE dollars!
Honestly we didn't care if it worked or not as we thought it would make a great and functional piece of furniture - and that it does! It fits in quite nicely with my old TV/suitcase/fan/clock setup in the corner of the loungeroom.
We haven't tried the record player but the radio does work. I need to get my electrician dad (yes, it's very handy) to check it out though. We left it plugged in the day we got it and returned home to a very smoky smelling house. We have confirmed now that it was the radiogram as it trips off the power switch when you plug it in.
We did have this bookcase laid on its side as our under-the-TV unit but now it has a nice home in the corner.
Please let me know if these homey type posts are boring the bee-jesus out of you!
Have a fab weekend.
