I found this old wood stand at a thrift store last week and brought it home hoping it would work as a printer stand for my office.
I don't have any idea how this piece was originally used. The top was missing and several of the wood slats that created the shelves were gone as well.
But for $6.00 I knew I couldn't go wrong.
As luck would have it (and since my garage is full of stuff), I found this oak top from an old sewing machine cabinet in my pile of "to do" projects that was a perfect fit for the top.
Although some of the original shelving slats were missing, I was able to create four complete shelves with the slats I had available. Once the slats were in place it was time to accessorize.
On the top shelf I added a vintage wire basket to hold my printer paper.
I created a deeper 2nd shelf so I could display my Underwood typewriter.
The depth of the 3rd shelf is the same as the 2nd, perfect for a locker basket to hold printer cartridges and misc. office supplies.
And the 4th shelf, a narrow bottom shelf, now holds a small basket.
Since I was photographing this piece in my entry (for better light), I didn't carry my printer out for the picture. But it is a perfect fit on top!
My next big home project is to paint and redecorate my home office.
Here's a picture of the office as it currently looks.
I want to lighten the walls (not sure of color just yet) and bring in more vintage pieces.
I think my "new" printer stand will be a great fit!
Have a wonderful week.
