Post Your Record Storage Area


Recommended Posts

pics soon! we just moved to a new house, and there's a whole room that is just my record room and i'm losing my mind. I condensed down from 2 4x2 expedits to 1 4x4 at the moment. we still have to figure out something for all of the components to sit in or rest on to fill out the rest of the room. i have 2 eames plastic chairs in there, and still need a new table for between them as well for relaxing. might swap them out for one of the big eames lounge chair knockoffs from amazon, but i haven't pulled the trigger on that yet. just gotta find a few more crucial pieces, and i'll have pics, I promise, haha.

real Eames?

Thought i would add my setup. i know there is plenty wrong here. the TT, the speakers, etc. All to be upgraded in the short future. had to compromise with GF to let her add her girly touch. still happy with how my collection is coming (only been about 3 months of actually purchasing records)

thanks so much! it looks kind of random in this picture, but that's because i just ditched the computer that was sitting in the left corner under the Queers poster, with the monitor directly to its right. the turntable was totally on the other side basically under the boxing glove (which is an homage to the cover art of one of the releases i put out last year), so the posters fit PERFECTLY with everything that was beneath them. here's what it looked like originally:

if you notice, each poster within an individual column is the same width as every other poster in that column. that made the side-to-side growth easier and more uniformed as i got more posters. i recently had to add the 4x4 unit, so now i can hang a few of the bigger (18 x 24, etc) posters above that and not have to worry about matching sizes because one poster will complete a column above that expedit.

 

as long as you have a plan in place before you start hanging things, you can make it look pretty awesome pretty easily.

Dude, this whole setup looks incredible.

Also, I was kind of a prick to you in the raffle thread...sorry about that :(

framing the bike was too rich for my blood.

 

He has his cable hanging there too, I'm sure there's just no other place for him to store his bike. I've known other people who ride regularly to store their bike like that.

 

 

 

yeah, its the only option i had. We live in a tiny 890 sq. foot condo, no garage, and my wife's bike that was locked up under our car port got  stolen. So now my bike is stored as wall art.

You know bikes are meant for riding not to just be hung on the wall.

Yeah, this really isn't that odd. Years ago there was a house that was being passed through my family (it's been sold since, whole big thing) and while my grandparents lived there, they hung up hooks on the garage ceiling and hung their bikes upside down by them. It was the strangest thing I'd ever seen, but it got the job done.

I think that the original post was just someone teasing by giving the response that they'd give if that person had a record framed.

I hope you glued those shelves in, because I would not trust the wood pegs and the shitty particle board on it's side since there is no weight distribution.

The evolution of my storage area.  Some custom tweaks that you can't see -- the installation of a backing on the IKEA Kallax with spacers on each shelf and the hooks installed on the side of the Kallax for cord and dust cover storage.  Pretty pleased with what I have going on right now with the small area that I have.  Also a bonus shot of my record clean area as well.

Some of you guys have me so asthetically beat, it's ridiculous. But, here goes.

I'm a big Springsteen fan. Most are sealed. I have everything (plus multiple copies of most) but I still need The Rising. I know some of you guys hate framing albums up, but it's what I like.

Manchester Orchestra wall. Signed by all original and current members on their respective albums.
