Good Questions: Tasteful Way to Store CD’s?

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Hello AT,

I wondered if anyone had advice about cheap but tasteful ways to store CDs. My boyfriend is a musician and has over a thousand in his collection. I would love to buy him solid wood CD shelves, but prices for those are prohibitive. I’ve seen some shelves listed as “wood finish”, but fear these may be fairly ugly and not last too long. Any creative ideas or recommendations would be very much appreciated!

Thanks so much, Sarah
