My Building Collection Display

This is the shelving system I built from scratch to display my souvenir building collection. (well, part of it is displayed here) The fireplace is not real, but only serves as a focal point for the room and houses our TV. I plan to hang a painting over the TV to conceal it. The doors below house the DVD, Stereo & speakers. The shelves appear to be ‘floating’ but are attached to a framework inside the wall for added strength. I added rope lighting behind the skyline of buildings illuminate them. This creates interesting silhouettes at night and presents a different mood to the collection. I hope to present other building collector’s displays and ideas on this blog, so send me some comments and email photos of your displays to me and I'll post them here. (my email address can be found in the the profile link)
