Record Storage Solution

When Brad and I moved into our first apartment together, I knew I'd have to get inventive with storage since we were combining our things, and we were on a student budget. One thing that I noticed quickly we were lacking was art and decor on the walls. It's crazy how much personality you can give a space just by placing something on the wall. And what better to display on the wall than my favourite records!

I took a trip to Ikea, and came home with two Ribba picture ledges. Altogether, this cost me around $30, but that's a bargain, considering it covers almost all of the dining table wall. I have them stacked alphabetically (because I'm crazy), and you can fit about 4 records in front of each other.

For those of you who are interested which records are at the front of each stack, the list is as follows (from top left):
-Bon Iver
-Neutral Milk Hotel
-The Postal Service
-She & Him
