A new home for my Subbuteo

Post by lewisdl » 18 May 2015, 16:43

Finally got round to buying some IKEA BILLY bookcases to house my Subbuteo collection. Just got to put the glass and panel doors on

All stashed away neatly in numerical order. Now I can see what I've got. Doors should keep the dust at bay as well.can highly recommend IKEA BILLY bookcases for storing the later subbuteo lightweight teams. You can fit 63-70 teams on a shelf making around 400. Teams per bookcase.

Wow !
That looks great, mate :)

I especially like how the doors hide all the odds and sods at the bottom, leaving the ranks of the OCD team boxes neatly on display at the top !

Looks awesome :)

Think we've discussed it before - one of the pitfalls of the PLG teams is the lack of identification on the sides/ends of the boxes.

Here's a link to the specific product on their website : http://www.ikea.com/gb/en/catalog/products/S19023407/

Or, for those on a budget, here's the cheaper version without doors - now with a spectacular yellow colour on the inside of the unit (also available with a black inner colour or just plain) : http://www.ikea.com/gb/en/catalog/products/00284782/

I actualy got a deal on the doors as they are 30% off at the moment to family members. So only paid £208. That's about 4 or 5 rare teams worth.

Very nice indeed, well done!!
It all seems very easy, this revolution game
But when you start to really play things won't be quite the same
Your intellectual theories on how it's going to be
Don't seem to take into account the true reality

That looks great, well done. Reminds me of toy shops in the 90s

Top class! Many thanks for posting - I've been looking for something suitable to store my collection since moving house.

This looks like the ideal solution. Now to get a lot of gear out of boxes .... ;-)
