Display Cabinets, Cute Stuff & TGIF!

Hey! How's everyone? Today I want to chat about cute stuff.
If you follow me on Twitter, then you know that I collect Funko Pop! figures. Actually, I collect a lot of things, but I have a LOT of Pops. They're all very cute, and used to sit on my bookshelves. Although I have a wall of bookshelves, it was getting to be a bit too much.
Between the toys, collectibles and books I was totally running out of room.
Well, that's no longer the case. Hubby and I went to the IKEA website a few weeks ago and found this beauty. It looked good onscreen, but we wanted to see it for ourselves before making a decision. Last week we walked down to our local store so we could take a closer look.

You know, sometimes things look good in pictures but suck when you actually see them in person...
Luckily, that was not the case with the REGISSÖR. It was just what we were looking for: a sturdy display cabinet big enough to house a bunch of adorable collectibles. Hubby picked one up a few days later, and by the end of the weekend we had this:

I LOVE the way it turned out. Sure, it might be a little crowded in there, but hey, I'm super excited about their new home. And it might not look like it, but there's definitely room for other additions in the future. We put the cabinet in the living room near the desk, so it might even be a source of inspiration.
The other really cool thing is that I finally got a chance to unbox and display my Movie Maniacs:
I've had them filed away for about 15 years! We didn't have anywhere to display them before. But more importantly, we didn't want to freak our daughter out when she was younger. Now she's old enough to not be scared. Plus she now knows that her mother's a horror freak. :P
Don't they look really cool? Love them!
I'm very happy with how it's shaping up.
We live in an apartment so this isn't the only thing we're doing to maximise our space. Every couple of years we try to re-evaluate what we've got and try to figure out the best way to make the most out of our living area.
Well, that's about it for today. After I finished sorting out this cabinet, I got stuck into the bookshelves so I've spent the latter part of this week working on that. I'm soooo tired. But that's not the end of it, we've got more planned for the weekend.
But that's probably something to chat about another day.
Oh, and BTW...

Also, have an awesome weekend!
