[The inspiration...a photo from Urban Outfitters.]We posted Steve's California Bungalow and Garden Retreat house tour on Friday and today, we want to point out his custom made TV unit simply inspired by...a photo. To hear how Steve turned this photo into a real piece of cherished furniture, click after the jump.
[The custom made piece!]We love that Steve truly had the picture recreated down to the look of the feet of the unit and the amplifier detail. In Steve's words..."The entertainment center was custom made to match a 50’s postcard I found at Urban Outfitters. I gave the furniture maker the dimensions and the picture. He did a fantastic job of recreating the piece. I designed a fake speaker at the bottom which I covered with Fender Amplifier fabric I found at an amp repair shop. The pull hardware is actually 50’s “dead stock” I found at Liz’s Antique hardware, in Los Angeles." Click here to see the TV unit and more of Steve's California bungalow and garden retreat.
