Put Another Record On

My gift to Brian this Christmas was a record player (or turntable, or phonograph). We’ve each been building up a collection of records over the years (mine started when I purchased Debbie Gibson’s Out of the Blue in the second grade), so it’s been great to hear our records through the speakers. The thing is, now I want some sort of furniture piece to hold the records and player. My current solution is a wooden TV tray and a plastic milk crate (note to college students with little money- buy these things, you will keep finding uses for them until you win the lotto and can afford to actually decorate your whole house at once).

The contenders:

Urban Outfitters

West Elm

CB2

And if I do win the lotto (or stop buying food):
