Anyone know where I can get a good value CD storage cabinet in the UK? I'm after something that looks like a real piece of furniture rather than just a rack - something like a chest of drawers maybe.

Have seen one or two around but only for silly money. :clueless:

Try KG's house...I'll bet it's full of secret, two headed dildo containment devices.

Thanks BGH but not quite what I had in mind!

Ikea has loads of different types for reasonable prices.

See here (http://www.ikea.co.uk/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/IkeamsSearch?storeId=7&langId=-20&catalogId=10101&searchType=product&pageNumber=-1&orderBy=score&category=%23%7EProducts&query=cd+storage)

I recommend the BENNO series http://www.ikea.co.uk/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?storeId=7&langId=-20&catalogId=10101&productId=11414
They got a depth of 17 cm, so they fit behind doors etc. You can store a lot of CDs and the look OK (if you got more of them they look in fact quite cool).

I have a nice MUJI cd storage unit (i didn't put the wheels on mine)

Guess it depends what kind of style you have going on at home, but our living room is pretty light coloured and modern and this fits in very unobtrusively.

I just use a couple of shelves on brackets, very cheap and quite minimalist.

I use a sheet of steel bent into an L shape.

Maybe I should just stick to my present solution, and throw them all into a cardboard box in the corner?

*Cover your ears, Funko...DIY decorating stuff to follow :D*

This is painfully obvious...how about a chest of drawers??
You can get them at thrift stores (charity shops, I think in UK) for next to nothing. Give em a coat of paint to match your decor. That's it.

You're right of course - couldn't see the wood for the trees!

These (http://www.cdstorageuk.com/) looked rather tempting until I saw the prices and nearly choked... :eek:

HAHAHA! Why not 10000 GBP?

There is one of them called The Shaker as well :lol:

Jesus, it's a fucking CD cabinet. Sometimes it seems people have more money than sense...

For a tenth of the price I'd buy one

Hell no I'd buy two! Do you think the company do a bulk discount? ;)

I would rather buy the IKEA stuff and 500 CDS

This Shaker
model has brushed steel
knobs and a soft sheen
lacquered finish to give it a
plain but stylish look.

sounds about right.

I always wondered how you got that plain, but stylish look.

plus you can apparently shove 800 CDs' in the Saker : very roomy!

It's the brushed steel knobs that I'm worried about...

It seems a bit pointless though when the CD holder costs more than the CDs it holds, especially when you are talking that many CDs...

Mind you, I am going to have to get a place of my own soon. I have a job elsewhere you see. But more importantly, I am out of shelf space for CDs ;)
