SOLD! Repurpose or Upcycle This Maple Bar Into Something Contemporary!

Maple Bar

Maple Bar

This maple bar was found at an auction in Mechanic Falls recently, and we were happy to scoop it up!   Recycle it, repurpose it, upcycle it… your imagination is your own limitation!

Here are a couple of ideas I found by quickly scanning the internet…

Bar - Upcycled into a Bit More Contemporary

Bar – Upcycled into a Bit More Contemporary

Bar - Upcycled into a Changing Table

Bar – Upcycled into a Changing Table

This would make a wonderful coffee station – just repaint it in a glossy black with white accents!  (If I had the time and the space at home, I’d do it myself for sure!)

Dimensions:  29 3/4″ W x 17 1/2″ D x 33″ H

Condition: As shown in the pictures.  Use as is, or refinish it.  This would look great in a chalk blue or other country color!  Or go retro with some 1950s or 60s colors!

Just $30.00 at Heritage Collectibles!

Main Location:  Heritage Collectibles at 189 Main Street, Lewiston  ME 04240.
Hours: During the holiday season, we’ll be open expanded hours – as much as our day jobs allow.  This week coming up those hours will be

Monday, Dec 21 – 10:00-1:15
Tuesday, Dec 22 – 10:00-12:15
Wednesday, Dec 23 – 9:00-12:00
Thursday, Dec 24 – 9:00-4:00

Our hours do unfortunately vary depending on the demands of our day jobs (Linda is a social worker, and John is the post press supervisor at the local newspaper), whether we are exhibiting at a show (rare nowadays), or are attending an auction we just don’t want to miss!  If you are coming from a distance, your best bet may be to call us first to make sure we’ll be there, or to make an appointment.  We do try to post our hours each day on the shop’s door, and on this blog.

Message re Our Products:
Most of the items we offer are vintage, antique or simply pre-owned.  Therefore, reasonable wear & tear is to be expected, and our items are sold as seen and as described in the photos and/or in person.
We try to describe any damage, nicks, blemishes or other problems of which we are aware in any and all of our listings, and always include plenty of clear photographs which are integral to the description, so please review them closely.
Also, please be aware that vintage and antique items are unlikely to be in factory condition, so if you aren’t used to buying antique or vintage items – and are in fact looking for a pristine, unused item – a new reproduction may be better suited for you.
We ordinarily do not “clean up” items because such cleaning may detract from their value.
We are specific and honest in our descriptions because we want happy buyers who will return and/or refer their friends!
