Repurposed Vintage Monday: Stuff We Spotted on Etsy 

Etsy rules. Sure we all like to poke fun of the site (hello Regretsy), but it is stuff like the following that keeps us coming back to the online marketplace on a regular basis.

ReAcoustic's Vintage Gramophone

Yes, it is possible to hear contemporary tunes played on a vintage gramophone, or at least through its horn. ReAcoustic has unplugged the traditional music dock by creating acoustic speakers for modern music devices without the use of batteries or electricity. Simply place your iPhone in the slot to hear your tunes in living vintage sound.

I heart this vintage wooden crate pet feeder. First is it elevated so it is not just sitting parked on the floor. Next it does double duty as a puppy toy box. Just open the top to store a few of your pet's items. Lastly, the wood is treated with a non toxic water resistant coating that protects the crate's paint and patina.

I am a sucker for vintage cast iron so the moment I saw this repurposed Victorian water heater stand table, my heart went pitter pat. This freshly painted item is beautifully detailed and is marked, "Monitor Iron Works, NY". Table Measures 22.25 inches tall and the top has an 18 inch radius.

Old books usually have really cool covers. So why hide them? Vintage Book Clocks transforms old hardcovers into funky timekeepers. Each ticker is guaranteed to be a conversation piece.

We spotted a “chair bench” in the Summer edition of Flea Market Style, and it reminded us of a post we spotted last year on Decor Hacks. They featured a lovely bench made from mismatched chairs by Decorhacks. Harmonious colors really pulled this piece together beautifully.
