Okay.  Moved into the new place recently and finally getting things organized and settled.  This is what has been done to the comic room so far.  I’m stuck creatively.  I’m not the best with trying to figure out how to display my collection.  I know I probably need a new shelving unit/display case or two.  The old lady has a lot of things to display also.  So, here are a few pics.  Any suggestions?

I can’t wait to see the posters hung on the wall!

1.  Where are the comic books?!

2.  I think I would keep the comics away from the windows but the toys and videos and cheaper posters would be fine, maybe move the desk over there.

EDIT:  I just noticed a heat grate in the floor too which the paper products may not like.  I think if you put the desk in front of a window you could examine comics in natural sunlight better and even take better pictures.  Added bonus is if it is a boring book you can look out the window for a few minutes before pressing on!

Just a thought, paint the walls?   I find a darker color on the walls really help the room pop more, once you start putting things on it.

Hey, you have two of my green marvel boxes, where did you get them?  I love that rustic stand, needs some comics, no?

I don't know what WW2 bunker you found that chair from, but it does not look made for anything but hitting guys over the head with in a wrestling ring....

You have a lot of space for stuff on the walls, some type of shelves to add something to the bare walls whether to hold comics or statues would really lively up the room!

I don’t really have a huge collection.  I only have about two short boxes worth of books, a good portion of which are slabbed.

The grate is an intake.  Good idea about the desk, maybe I’ll roll it over there and see how it looks.

That’s definitely something I need to do soon. I thought I’d seen some Schomburg lithos at some point on eBay.  Maybe I’ll try to find one.

That’s a good idea.  I think I’m definitely going to need to expand some displaying space.  Maybe I’ll make a trip to ikea this week.  I see people like the IKEA Detolfs.  Hmm...

I definitely like the idea of painting the walls, but since I’m renting I’m not sure what my landlords stance would be whenever I move out.  Worst case I’d have to repaint which wouldn’t be that big of a deal I suppose.  I feel like maybe I need a better lighting situation.  Get a nice lamp or two.  I’m not in the room on a regular basis so most of the time the lights are off with the door shut.

I got them from two different stores near me within the past couple years.  They both got them with collections they’d purchased.  Both store owners are friends and they pretty much just gave them to me. 

Yeah, I’m stuck in what to put in the spinner.  Since it’s a rack that was manufactured just after the Comics Code came about, I feel like it would be neat to fill it with PCH, but that’s a tough nut to crack these days.  It sits empty a lot which is a shame.

Haha.  Yeah, I need to get a decent chair for the desk.  I’ve been using a folding chair for the past several years.  

You’re right, I definitely need to get more shelving or display cases.  I used to have a glass showcase that was about 5’ long but got rid of it about 9 years ago when I had to move.  It would be awesome to have one of those again.

Thanks for all of the input so far everyone!  It’s fun putting the new room together but also a little stressful, so I really appreciate all of the suggestions.
