Display progress

Picture 004After a brief hiatus for a family holiday, the AFB display renovation has been back in full swing. To this point, the collection has been packed up, the old open shelves removed, the old furniture in the study / display room removed and sold and the room has been painted courtesy of Mrs AFB and her holiday renovation bug.

Last weekend a mate drove me to IKEA in his big people mover and helped me face the perils of self serve furniture and bring home five display cabinets, ten glass doors and one sofa bed. I then began the happy adventure of assembly.

A day and a half later, with only minor wailing and gnashing of teeth, we have an assembled sofa bed and cabinets ready to be filled with toys!

Picture 006Grabbed these photos of the completed cabinets – one set of three and one set of two – and thought I’d post them as a progress report before the displaying begins. I do imagine my collection will come close to filling its new home, with a bit of room for expansion.

Will check in later with the finished product!

You should really do a pictorial update on these.
It's the kind of thing that I've wanted, only you have three!!!
