I got this great, industrial fan cage not too long ago and knew I wanted to make some sort of shelving unit with it.  I had a vintage piano bench in the garage forever.  Using it to pile up more junk.  A lightbulb went off and I wondered if the fan cage would fit on top.  It did!  Once they were a match, it was greased lightning.  

I brought in some distressed wood and vintage locker baskets.  And don't forget vintage rulers!
