How to: Make a DIY Industrial Record Cabinet
In the era of digital entertainment and the cloud, it can be tough to store physical media. While you can snag giant hard drives with a footprint smaller than a single book, it can be tough to find a spot for those things you can touch. Particularly vinyl records, lps, albums, or whatever you like to call ’em. Milk crates have shrunk, and with the exception of IKEA’s Expedit series, or expensive custom DJ furniture, it’s hard to find cabinets or shelves deep and tall enough to handle those twelve inchers.
Unless, of course, you make it yourself. And while you’re at it, make sure it can double as seating for your next music-filled get-together. Rachel Denbow from Smile and Wave created this industrial-inspired piece for A Beautiful Mess, using easy-to-find-and-work-with pieces from the hardware store to create some pretty stylish storage.
