Cyber Monday is the day to buy all the little things you forgot you needed on Black Friday and Urban Outfitters was one of the many retailers that offered flash deals earlier this week. While you would assume shoppers used it as an opportunity to stock up on scented candles, punny mugs, and neon lights, they actually stuck to practical purchases. The brand’s top-seller on both Black Friday and Cyber Monday? The Vinyl Record Storage Shelf.
The $99 find is as simple as its name suggests. It’s a basic iron metal frame with two shelves (one of which can hold a record player) and a rack at the bottom that keeps LPs standing upright. Many of the 264 reviewers who left comments about the piece praised its sturdiness as well as its size—it’s perfect for small apartments that lack built-ins. Read on for how to put the shelf to use, whether you’re a music buff or not.
Keep Your Vinyl Collection in Line (Duh!)
This is what it’s meant for, after all. If you run out of space, designate the rack to the records in your current rotation.
Make a Reading Nook
Stock the rack with magazines, then add the company’s equally popular mushroom table lamp up top.
Store Tricky Kitchen Gear
When faced with limited cabinets and an overabundance of groceries, call for backup. Dry pantry goods and decorative dishes can sit on top of the two shelves, while the bottom rack is perfect for keeping cutting boards and baking sheets organized.
