How do you keep, store, display your dolls if you get more and more?

    1. @Sheltie thank you! We're not too far from an Ikea so that's really useful to know. I need some strong shelves :)

    3. I'm actually considering buying corner-glass shelves that I can install myself so I can set their height as need-be, and also string up my lights in my room around them for neat lighting! They're cheap, and easy to install/adjust!

      For now tho, my 3 MSD's are sitting on my jewelry box, and I have no room for my 70cm boy coming in, so this is why I'm ready for a revamp for space.

    4. @Sheltie I need to measure the space for the shelves to see how room I've got left.

      @Pigxels that sounds like a good idea. Photos of the finished result, please!
       
    5. I keep mine in boxes and all the accessories in totes, I would love to display them but I'm saving that project for when I'm in my "forever home".

    6. @Arekushia that is so tidy! I think a lot of my boxes are in the loft. But the main problem is filing doll clothes and wigs.
       
    7. I'd love to know what everyone else uses to display their dolls! I want more Ideas on how to better display my collection <3

      I personally have been using an old entertainment unit (the big box tv kind). The TV area is for my bigger dolls and the DVD/CD shelfs are for my tiny dolls! Though it would be nice to add a shelf in the TV area, it's more or less perfect for doll display. (in my opinion of course)

    8. Mine hang out on top of, or in, a display cabinet that contains other 3d artworks. (I collect model horses, and Spouse collects other figures, and we have a cat so glass is a must.)

      They move between there and the craft area when they're having work done or helping out with a project. ;)

    9. Right now my doll family is fairly small, so I deep them on my desk. Since I'm done with college I get to decorate my desk with all my favorite things. We have a lot of other shelves filled with figures, but they aren't big enough for my MSD girls. One day I'd love to have a glass display case just for my dolls, but right now we don't really have the space for it in our apartment.

    11. My husband made me a small display box for our bedroom, but I'm slowly running out of room :sweat I would love to have them hang out in the computer room with us, but I'm afraid our cats would knock them over...
       
    12. I have custom built shelving taking up an entire wall of our spare bedroom. All of the dolls are displayed in room dioramas there, the extra clothes/accessories not in the dioramas are in a chest of drawers or hanging in the closet. The door stays shut when I'm not in that room, so the dolls are safe from my dog, dust and guests who might not appreciate them as much as I do.
       
    13. I have a couch and bed in my girls’ scale, so they just hang out on those on their own table.

    14. Wow some awesome ideas! Do any type of light globes contribute to resin yellowing? I was thinking of storing mine in a TV cabinet with glass door, but it is quote deep so was thinking perhaps some LEDs? But I dont want to damage the resin!
       
    15. I have just bought this to display my Tawny Owl Popovy doll I have on order!
       
    16. Sorry can’t get the photo to show!
       
    17. I have the ikea all glass curio cabinet for most of my collection. I'm making my pukipuki a roombox out of a lantern. I only have 4 dolls right now including the pukipuki now.
       
    18. I want them out where I can enjoy them at all times, so they are spread around my small home in displays that act as fine art. If I have an empty space, instead of hanging a picture there, I’ll create some sort of display made from just about anything I can find (a shelf, an old trunk, the top of a dresser, the top of my roll top desk, an old re-purposed TV cabinet, etc...whatever works!) There I’ll set up furniture or accessories to suit their characters, in elaborate little personalized vignettes. That way it seems like they’re all living their own lives independently, but within my space where they can be enjoyed by myself and everyone in my family. Here’s one example in front of a protected window...way more fun than ordinary draperies if you ask me.;)

    19. amaxing @PoeticSoul and @Leo Pheonix - I cant wait to get my first doll and set up her surroundings. I will definitely keep mine somewhere I can see (but away from the cats somehow)
