Vintage Radio for Modern Tech

Introduction: Vintage Radio for Modern Tech

About: We're Mother Daughter Projects, sharing our DIY adventures as we learn to maintain, improve, decorate, and use tech in our homes.

I picked up this vintage radio from a thrift store and thought it would make a great place to store my computer hard drives and dock. The front would look great on my desk and the back could be open for ventilation for the tech.
