When we built our house there were a few pieces of vintage furniture from my grandparents house I wanted showcase in our home. This radiogram was a feature in my grandparents lounge room and I loved it. We were also considering purchasing art but I loved the idea of having record covers on display.
After extensive pinterest research we discovered Ikea shoe storage boxes are perfect storing records and Ikea frames were the perfect size for record covers! We had a large plain wall above the stairs but to create a record space there was much harder than you would think. We moved lights, added a powerpoint, mounted the storage boxes and had difficult access to hang the frames! I’m really happy with how it turned out, what would have been a dead space in our house feels like another room.
It was a quandary to source and decide what covers should go in the frames. I picked up these records for $2 each to get the project rolling. I’m still rummaging in record bins to find new gems….. I think it might turn into a changing feature wall.
