Johnny G: Where did you get those shelves? Home Depot? They look familiar. Looks like short boxes fit perfectly on them. Nice set-up!

While I don't have enough of a collection to justify a dedicated room, I do have a "comic cabinet" as part of my media room :





On the opposite wall is the home theater set-up:

Nice rooms I don't have nearly enough books to even dedicate a shelf to them but with time.

I got the shelves at Lowes... under $80ea and they fit 25 shorts perfectly! I do recommend getting a wood panel and having it cut to fit the shelves. They are "rods" so they can dig in to the boxes and perhaps books. It also makes it much easier to "slide" a box out. I just bought 2 Maple panels (matched desk in previous room) and had them cut right at the store... tack on another $30 or so.

I do believe they have similar at costco... I believe the ones there even have wheels and a "lip" on the back

Thanks!

John

It's funny to see how people think differently. I've used similar shelves from Metro (before less expensive versions became available) for about 12 years and now buy mine from Target. I actually like the rod set-up on the shelves and haven't put boards underneath the boxes. In my mind, it allows air circulation, prevents micro-environments from forming and discourages insect activity. I definitely see your point, though--I know I'm careful when I slide out a box.

Also, I typically pick the black finish, which is, I believe, epoxy, with less off-gassing danger. I'm sure I've overthought this.
