Do your teens have a collection? Or vinyls?
My daughter has a collection of Petshops and
My Little Ponies that she has acquired over time.
Over the years the problem has been how to display it.
In her vintage display case they looked too small, so back they went into a basket where the cats got them and yanked some apart and the poodles chewed them.
Then about a year ago or so, we went to Ikea looking for a way to display them, and we left with the Mosslanda. At the time, these ledges were 3.99 or 4.99 a piece. Now they are a bit more, but compared to PB or other makers these still are a bargain. Plus they are easy to install, because there are screw holes. No trying to figure out the back holes and where to line them up. All you need is a screwdriver and a level as long as they hold in your type of particular wall. We chose to put them on the one drywall spot in the house; it is a closet that at some point was added to this house.
This is our before. The white does not do the collection justice. So we removed the ledges from the wall and took them out to the backyard, and she placed them on some cardboard and painted.
Here they are now. The shelves were painted with a Rustoleum's Metallic Gold, and now they look like metal, which gives them a modern edge. (The cat art is available at Fab Funky or a unique shop. A unique shop is where she found this one. She has had it a while, but recently we saw the creator's shop featured in a magazine.)
These shelves can actually display items up to 17 3/4 inches. They also have a groove to hold plates or frames, but we think they are great for collectibles. Since they are only 4 3/4 width, we were able to place them behind a door.
So that's it.
I hope you are enjoying your week.
