Before & After

Before
Unplggd reader Milly wrote in with this decor-friendly before and after project, dealing with their collection of LPs in a way that : This is a before-and-after shot of my husband's creative solution to displaying album art on our record shelf (IKEA Expedit 4x2 + 2x2). I thought the "lines" looked ugly so I asked him to do something about it. He simply pushed all the records back by about 2-3", and since the shelves are about 15" deep, they don't overhang the rear! The idea here is to leave the last album played from that cube out on display, so the artwork will be constantly changing.

After!

My husband has a small fetish/obsession with long play vinyl records. His collection started with a small inheritance from his Great-Uncle, then expanded with some crates from my BFF's husband. Add some choice selections from the Salvation Army, including a stereo version of Herb Alpert's Whipped Cream and Other Delights for a $1.00. Personally, rather enjoy looking at the art more than the lines. Right?

So after thinking of all kinds of ways to display the art (think fabric hanging with pockets for each album sleeve and various ways of fastening it), Hubby went over to the IKEA Expedit took out some pieces out, and VOILA!

What do you think, Unplggd readers? And how do you store and display your records in your home?
