a thrifted solution to a storage problem

My boyfriend and I just moved into a new place, and I finally got to get rid of some old, ugly bookcases we'd had for years. The only problem was we couldn't afford to buy a ton of new bookcases, and we have a TON of books. We purchased two inexpensive bookcases from Ikea, but there was still the problem of where to store my large collection of manga and comic strip books. I started looking around at local thrift shops, and finally found this vintage record cabinet (I'm not sure of the age...might be 1960s or 1970s?), which turned out to be perfect! I found it at a St. Vincent de Paul thrift shop just down the hill from our apartment, and the best part was the price....$20! So now I have a cool storage solution, plus a place for my clock collection. Color me happy!
