This isn't the first time I've shown you this "jazzy" radio light.

I've done an actual post on here on my blog.  So I decided now it the time.

I bought the radio shell at the Country Junk Sale a few years ago.  The inside was empty other that some "lovely" old velvet...which I ripped out immediately.  I cut some vintage button patterned vellum to fit the spot and secured it with glue dots.

Next we drilled a hole to fit a clip in bulb from an old Christmas House...perfect.

And screwed on some wooden drawer knobs for feet.
