HOUSE: Newburgh

A bit of the new office, now at the front of the house.

The Stendig calendar is finally hanging.

Evan’s comic book boxes (some of them, at least) are lined up neatly on shelves.

    Not only do I have and love the yellow bedding in the previous post, but my husband has a collection of comics books to rival Evan’s. Wait’ll I show him how nice this looks!!

    I’ve been reading your blog for a little while now, and I love it! I’ll have to point this out to my boyfriend tonight when he’s reading over my shoulder, he’s been keeping his comics in boxes in a closet, I’m sure he’d like to be able to access them again.

    Love the changes you’re made.

    We have those same shelves. In our loft, they took up a lot of the empty wall space. Since moving into our decidedly smaller craftsman bungalow, we’ve turned them into pantry shelves in our eat in kitchen nook. So versatile since they’re soo cute.

    Love your house… and I’m jealous of those radiators… radiator heat is the best!

    my entire comic collection would fit into one of those boxes. hee hee.

    There is a mis-fold on the front of the second box from the end, on the second shelf from the top!
    I’ll TRY to overlook it this one time! 8^)

    to add to DiP’s comment: and what’s with the little holes on the fronts of the boxes not lining up? you’re slipping, girl! 😉

    Can I steal your home? I’ve been watching your blog for a little bit and I love EVERYTHING. How do you manage to find such great things!?

    I am home sick today and spent the morning reading your entire blog front to back. It’s the best! My “3 year plan” is to buy a house upstate. You have given me much inspiration—oh the Hudson! I love your river views. Hope to be neighbors someday. In the meantime I am awaiting a move into my first, non-roommate, Brooklyn railroad apartment with my boyfriend this March. Gathering design ideas and agreeing with your love of white. Dirty whites are my favorites.
    Thanks Anna, Kelly

    I love your blog and sense of style. what kind of shelves/boxes are those, if you don’t mind my asking? Its a great solution to my husband’s magazine collection..

    • John Caruso February 23, 2020 at 2:46 pm

      I really like those shelves for comic book boxes. I have been looking for something for my collection that is sturdy but still stylish. Can you please provide the details on how to order the shelves? Thanks

    • Anna Dorfman February 24, 2020 at 3:56 pm

      This post is from 2008! The shelves were discontinued from IKEA many years ago.

    DiP & Lesley: Come on, I’m embracing the imperfections! Seriously, if I try to micromanage Evan’s comic book collection, I will lose my mind–I did make a suggestion that maybe he could look into buying all of the boxes at once so they’d match (every source seems to have slightly different dimensions, and he’s accumulated these boxes over a number of years). Maybe if I arrange them just so, the variances will be less noticeable…hmmm…

    Kelly: When the time comes, look into Newburgh! Seriously! We love it here!

    nkc: The boxes (which are acid-free) come from a variety of comic book stores and comic book supply places online. They’re made specifically for comic books, but they also sell them in various standard magazine sizes. Anyplace that sells supplies for paper media collections should have them.

    Just seeing all of that organization makes my heart skip a beat. Beautiful!

    Congratulations on the garden!

    I love your blog – it got me through a nasty cold where I read it beginning to end.

    I’m now working on our home office and would love some simple, tidy bookshelves that could accommodate boxes of gear and such. Totally random, but I like how balanced these shelves look. I suspect these may no longer be in production, but where did you find them?

  • Reply megan September 3, 2013 at 10:34 pm

    I almost fell over seeing this – I quickly had to show The Husband because I am trying to convince him that he really wants to buy a fixer-uper upstate because LOOK he could have ALL OF HIS COMICS in one lovely space! 🙂

    By the way, I’m reading your blog LIKE IT’S MY JOB. Love it! 🙂
