QUA1L, what media cabinet is that the audio gear is on? Love the look of the room, bud.

I honestly couldnt tell you.  I was roaming the internet trying to find something that seemed sturdy.   Actually stumbled upon this on Craigslist for $50.  I think I had found some decent stuff I had contemplated buying on Wayfair.com.  Just search "audio rack"

Thanks dude, appreciate it.

Anyone have any experience with these from Target?

Wondering if the specs will allow for records on the upper shelves:

Weight capacity is 30 lbs per cube shelf.

  • Frame Material: MDF Composite
  • Number of Shelves: 2
  • Maximum Shelf Weight Capacity: 15.000 pounds
  • Maximum Weight Capacity: 25.000 pounds
  • Care and Cleaning: Wipe Clean with a Dry Cloth
  • Dimensions: 31.000 inches H x 44.000 inches W x 14.625 inches D
  • Weight: 56.000 pounds

finally after almost 10 years (see page #1 for when i first got my 4x4 expedit in 2008 haha) i outgrew it and wanted to add more cubes

changed it up and went with three 2x4 kallax shelves when i saw they were on sale this past week, really pleased with how it turned out

I have a 3x2 as pictured and a 3x3. They're both holding up fine after three years of use.

Are they filled on all shelves? I just bought one and have only been loading on the bottom row cause I was scared the top ones couldn't take it, but I trust your 3 years of use. Thanks for the input!

So, just out of curiosity, what's the highest anyone has stacked Kallax shelves? Would a 2x2 on top of a 2x4 stacked vertically be asking for trouble?

 

 

 

Mine have been fine for the last few years. I DO have them all mounted to the wall also.

I'd post pics, but Photobucket sucks.

I have two 2x4 mounted vertically, with a 2x2 on top of each one.

I dusted and reorganized the collection and it looks pretty good imo, plus I haven't posted a photo of my set-up since I moved into this apartment two years ago, so consider this post a placeholder for pics to come. 

Since this busted ass site doesn't let us post photos straight from our devices. Like literally any other forum site in this, the year of our Lord 2017

 

EDIT: Alright, finally got some pictures.

The Before: Dust, an extra set of speakers (of the Bluetooth variety), more dust, and DVDs mixed in even though I still had stuff to sort into the cubes, most of which were almost too full.

The After: significantly less dust, space for growth, extra speakers moved onto the desk where we keep our modem and router, and DVDs put into some boxes and cast to the side since we rarely watch them. Not an ideal place for the DVD player, but I haven't figured out anything better for the time being.

...and an overall shot, including the actual turntable, receiver, and a cassette deck that I've yet to hook up and test. Not the most glamorous space, but I'm not made of money yet. The box underneath the turntable is full of my roommate's records.

The amount of dust in this picture makes me want to sneeze just looking at it. I'm not the most thorough/regular duster, but daaaaamn. Glad you cleaned up :)

Try to make the most of my small space and use the record shelf as a wall divider between the living area and custom closet since its just one room.
