A New Storage & Display Cabinet

I just returned from picking up a new storage and display cabinet for all of my models. It is the IKEA Bjursta storage cabinet that I first heard about while reading Olicanalad's Games blog several months ago. Of course, I procrastinated buying it from IKEA directly and when I finally decided to pick one up I was disappointed to discover that IKEA no longer sells this piece of furniture. Drat. Luckily, I was able to find this exact cabinet I wanted from a nice lady across town named Joan who was selling one in perfect condition, for half price, and already assembled. Some things just work out.

The cabinet has glass doors and five glass shelves and also has a nice drawer in the middle for additional storage. It is a little dark in the cabinet, so I may need to look into adding some lighting. I'm looking forward to moving my armies and painted figures out of the old storage and other cases and into the cabinet today.
