Gone are the days when mixtapes made our hearts skip a beat – especially if the person you love spent their time choosing the best songs for you. Now, helping us remember simpler times, designer Jeff Skierka came up with this interesting Mixtape Table – a coffee table made out of reclaimed maple, walnut and lucite ( transparent thermoplastic acrylic resin). Protected by a plexiglass tabletop and supported by three simple transparent stands, the Mixtape Coffee Table is the result of the designer’s “obsession” – it has been on his mind for 5 years. Uniquely showcasing carefully considered details, the table is a 12:1 scaled replica of a cassette tape – a first prototype that will be transformed into a CNC-cut piece of furniture with a glass tabletop to be displayed in any residence. It can even be reversed to (dis)play either side A or side B. All we need now is a huge pen to manually rewind it.
An armoire can be a lovely addition to your bedroom, even if you already have a giant walk-in closet. If you have enough stuff, you may want to dedicate your armoire to neatly organizing and storing all your jewelry, scarves, purses, handbags, shoes, and other smaller accessories. Do you own enough hats? Simply replace the glass doors with netting for an interesting way to display them.
Bet you never expected this! Another example featured on Giddy Upcycled shows an armoire transformed into a big, beautiful birdcage for live birds. Of course, the glass is replaced again with more appropriate cage-like netting. Neat idea if you want to show off your feathery friends in style.
