PostSubject: New glass cabinet for my collection!    Thu Sep 17, 2015 10:06 pm

My collection is growing fast, especially with the trades I make nowadays. The animals come in fast and my collection was growing all over my desk. No space in my white cabinet left to held them any longer bounce

So, I needed more space! Many of you know the glass cabinets the Lidl has for sale sometimes? I wanted such a cabinet to hold my Canines and felines, so the shelf space they took in was empty for my collection to grow even more XD

But... Lidl didn't sell any at the moment and I needed the new space badly. So I searched on Marktplaats.nl (Dutch E-Bayisch site.) but couldn't find any Rolling Eyes Then I got a smart idea and asked Julie for help. She always finds the right and the good stuff, so I thought she might find a cabinet as well. And YES, she did! Of course! I mailed the seller immediately. After a few days of no response, I mailed again and right after that I got a mail back. That same night I could pick the cabined up at his garage box.

Everything looked fine, was still in the box and all... But when unpacking the cabinet at home, one of the glass side panels was in 1000 pieces silent pale I was sad, but after assembling the cabinet, it wasn't the worst thing anymore XD I took me a whole day to fill in the glass cabinet and to rearrange my white cabinet. It is one big annoying puzzle Razz It was fun to do, but also a big pain when some animals wouldn't cooperate...

I have made photos before and after, here they are:

Such a shame the one panel is broken Sad You should contact the company to see if they can send you a new piece, or at least give you a partial refund Very Happy

On the other hand, it looks great! cheers Congrats my friend Very Happy

I bought the cabinet from Markplaats.nl, action site, so I can't ask for a refund or a spare glass side panel Wink But I bought the glass cabinet for the half of the prize it would normally go for in the store, so I don't mind :)

It was so much fun! Very Happy I ended up talking to my animals XD
"You are going here, and you there." Razz

I didn't solve anything at all Wink The panel is still broken and my cabinet has one side without glass (the side facing my bookcase). It isn't even noticeable when you don't know it Wink

It is very comfy :3 Which enough space and everything I need to repaint or do something else :)

cheers cheers cheers

Great new cabinet! Big congrats, and I'm a little jealous of your shelving arrangements... mine al just get crammed into bookshelves unfortunately. Congrats on the swelling of your collection, all the new figures, and the new display! cheers

Whaaaaaaaaaaaa hurray!!! Okay, I've already seen the photographs, but now I'm home again, behind my laptop, so I can see them in a better size. But this is great, Karin! I'm so happy I could help you out with getting this cabinet! A pity that one side was broken, but you don't see it that much when looking at it. Wonderful, your collection looks so neat and gorgeous right now <3 Well done Applause
