My Way to Display

Post by willssoda » Sat Jan 12, 2019 1:22 am

I like to display my cans in display cases and recently I found two cases on the “Let Go” Appfor a wopping $50. When I went to pick them Up I could only get one in my truck and they were missing the shelves. Little elbow grease and 4 shelves later a total of $75 for a new display case.

I found 2 large bulletin boards in a thrift shop that came out of our local Bowling Alley for $40 each. I started by stripping out all the corkboard and crap. I then added back glass, made side and center pieces using peg board as a template, had glass shelves made and finally put lights in them. I was extremely pleased how they came out and are a perfect depth for Quart Cones!

Nice work guys! I really like the glass curio cabinets mixed in with more traditional shelves in a can room. Just seems to add an extra element of dimension, depth and display contrast.

I picked this one up last Spring at Ikea. My wife and I had never been to an Ikea. They built one in our area and after months and months of Police directed craziness with the traffic getting in/out, we decided to check it out. Spent like 4 hours there the 1st day, including lunch in their cafeteria. Fascinating concept in retail BTW. Anyway, came across the cabinet below and absolutely knew I had to buy it the minute I saw it. Love the 1940's-ish retro look. Perfect for some random low pro's. Even came with a lock. While I didn't have to rebuild it like the two above, I did have to put it together. LOL!!

Man I'm not sure what's nicer. The case or the cans! Thanks for sharing

Not sure if those shelves are adjustable or not but looks like you could get 1 or maybe 2 more in there....
