Looking good Smash!

You might want to hit Craigs List for shelves and displays.  I have seen some really slick curios and fixtures for cheap in my area.  Snagged all my track lighting there with bulbs for just $50.

thanks!

I looked at craigslist and haven't found anything to my liking.  I will keep looking 

i gotta find out if Lowes will cut Melamine or not - for some reason I am thinking they won't because of the finish

time for an update:

just realized this image below isn't the board length that I bought, but a shorter version of the same board.


had 1/2 the boards cut down at Lowes and took a pic of the dude doing it but for some reason the picture is blowing up mega huge so anyway.....










1/3 the way completed with my shelves - the rest of the shelves are going on the bigger (longer) wall

Awesome!  Looks great man.  How long are those boards?  I am looking forward to/dreading refilling the shelves with individual figures...

I have four shelves that are 96.5 inches long and 16 inches deep - these are the "short shelves".  The other 4 shelves, aka the "long shelves," are 157 inches long by 16 inches deep.

and yeah, I thought I had plenty of room.....

and then my Indiana Jones collection took up nearly 3/4 of one of my "short" shelves - and I kinda crammed stuff in!

vehicles take up a lot more space than one might think...

I like the colour of paint you chose for the room, it should create a nice contrast between the wall and the figures.  I'm going to be starting my new Star Wars room soon and have the same type of shelving to put on the walls.  I look forward to seeing your collection come together!

Those are some massive shelves!  I couldn't even get those down my stairs.  I'm sure they will fill up fast, but really nice to have long interuppted space like that.  Congrats on making progress!
