And it all came together when I came across this wonderful idea on pinterest:
I'm pretty sure I have two shelves worth, so I got a basic open shelf at Home Depot, in brown:
and one shelf at a garage sale:
Here are all the cameras I have:
I'm hoping that they will work together nicely to provide a place to display the cameras. I am planning on painting a chalkboard finish to outline the cameras and write their names, and perhaps display some pictures that would have a vintage feel of our family. My only downside is that I probably will have to sand and paint the garage sale display because some of the plywood laminate is pulling away from the unit.
One other concern is dust. I was trying to come up with a way to keep this display from getting dusty? I was contemplating putting anti-glare plexiglass to attach to the front of the cases that are self-contained, but I don't want anything to be in the way of seeing the cameras. I'm such a bad duster, though.....
After I paint, I'll post an update with the display how I improved the look of the shelves. Sorry for the bad pictures, I'm a nighttime blogger and home improver. No pictures are taken in daylight.....
