Complete Record Storage

Standard

record-storage4With 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’drecord-shelf2 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.

recod-feetCraigslist (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.
