I'm thinking of getting some long-term record storage, since its pretty safe to say now that i'm in this crate-digging thing for the long haul.
so far, being 3 years in i've got around 6-7 crates' worth of vinyl, but right now my storage is atrocious. i've literally just stacked full milk crates of records on top of each other in my closet--putting a lot of weight on the crates, which were so small that i'd have to tilt the records at a 10 degree angle to fit them in...so obivously, i gotta start taking better care o' my shiyettt.
i went looking around at furniture stores today, but then i realized i'm a regular on the most knowledgeable message board on the internets when it comes to this kinda stuff, and it just clicked.
so i'm sure this topic's been done before, but what do you guys usually use for long-term storage?
i'm thinking of getting this for around $95:
i went and saw it in person today, it's definitely big enough to store vinyl. and each cube of space is reinforced by the wood, so there isn't any pressure exerted onto the records themselves.

I've built one myself which is fine if you are just putting it in your closet. But if this will be on display in the middle of your room then def go with the Ikea ones, they will look much nicer than some half-ass shop class project.

it's an additional $100 to do that, which is more than i'd be paying for the actual piece of furniture.

Good luck with it all though, post a pic when your all set up!

You can skip to 2:40 if you're not interested by the guy's story. The girl looks pretty nice though.
