some potential work happening here on the home front, I figured it might be a good idea to have all of the record albums stored together…in a more display worthy sort of fashion. At my last count, I’ve got records stored in four different locations throughout the house. If I could have my way, the records would all be together in a more decorative sort of fashion. In addition to storing a plethora of records, it’d be neat if the shelves could also store some books, pictures, decor., etc.
Yes, I know, it seems a tall order. Plus, there are things to consider like: the type of wood, construction style, coloring/finish (to coordinate with existing pieces or not to coordinate, that is the question), number of shelves, what sort of base…I could go on and on. I believe I’ve at least narrowed down where I’d like the piece to fit. With that being said, it’ll have to be greater in height than width. And, I’m really looking for a piece that can actually handle the weight that’ll be placed upon it, so sturdiness will be paramount.
Craigslist (local and not-so-local), Pinterest, and the internet in general have provided me with a variety of ideas. Any piece that I’ve been remotely interested in would need some sort of alteration, whether painting, reinforcement, design change, etc. So, if all goes well, I think I may be investing in a custom-made record shelf. Yah, yah, I know…that should make this whole thing a piece of cake. However, let me mention how overwhelming all of the existing choices have been. Within reason, I can create whatever sort of piece I want. Goodness knows, now all I need to do is make up my mind. Needless to say, easier said than done. Go figure.
