I like the Space Age, Starburst, Amoeba and Boomerang Style. I found this "Starburst Shelf" down on Fourth St in Long Beach at the Starlight Room, right by Tiki Frogs excellent Mid-Century Shop. It was really in poor shape, so I thought I'd fix it. I've been watching the "Junk Brothers" lately and they fix things up and change 'em up a bit, so they gave me some inspiration. As you can see the Foil Wallpaper was badly decomposing, the Plastic Mirror was beat up, it needed painting and it was lame.

I added Tapa and some cool woven Material Mat board, it looks cool.





We all need more shelf space
Mahalo,
Al

I take perverse pleasure in watching Junk Brothers because I often think that the final product is worse junk than what they started with. But you did an awesome job - what a striking way to show off your knick knacks.

Great job! Really hard to pull off a successful marriage of Googie and Teekee like that but when it works well nothing kix ass quite as much!

Fantastic work, Al!
You saved another wonderful piece of history from the jaws of the landfill and made another cool addition to your swanky home!
Keep up the great work...
K.
