Lookin’ Good: a place for everything, everything in its place

I just have to give one more organizational tip before I go back to the real important genealogy stuff!  I have so many little collectibles and books, etc., that it is hard to display it all without making the room look messy.  After moving to our new home, my husband and I built a new “old” shelving system for my office.  It takes up one whole side of the room and is about 10 feet long and from floor to ceiling.  We bought new angle iron and metal fence posts and “aged” them to look old.  The process took a few days of trial and error, but I love how it turned out.
