I grew up listening to a lot of music from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. I owe my love of the oldies to my dad and my grandmother. My grandmother loves Bobby Goldsporo and Tab Hunter, while I listed to a lot of Queen, Kansas, The Beatles, Boston, Neil Diamond and Jim Croce with my dad. So when I graduated high school I gifted myself (go me) with a record player and I love it!!
Isn’t it awesome?? Since then i have been collecting some of my favorite records! But when we moved to our new house, I didn’t have a good place to set it up. So my husband came up with this AWESOME idea that displays my record player along with having the perfect storage for my growing record collection.
This is a Kallax storage unit from IKEA in black/brown we got for $35. I am not compensated by IKEA for posting this, but I LOVE this product. (And pretty much everything else from IKEA) My record player fits perfectly on the top, the records fit great in the cubes, and the round things are little foot stools we happened to already have that look great there and it’s the perfect place to store them. I also have a little vase in there with the boquet I held as a bridesmaid at my sister-in-laws wedding. (Which also happened to be my brother’s wedding since he married my sister-in-law) 😜 Plus the BEST part is there is room for more records. Half Price Books, here I come!
So maybe it’s time to dig out your old record player or go buy a new one! (If you like the one I have, you can purchase that here. And again, I’m not compensated. I just love this record player!) Trust me, there is something so FUN about listening to vynl with your family!
Until next time,
