(In case ya missed it, Phase 1 is HERE.)
Well, this has been a bit of a physical ordeal! Phase 1 was easy-peasy as there were no heavy parts to assemble with most of the job being straight forward but this, by contrast, was a bit of a head scratcher due to a twisted 'level' to the floor and cumbersome parts to work with as well as a new skill or two to learn (often the hard way).
Waffle aside, here is a taster of what I've managed to achieve so far with Phase 2:

I donated to a charity some unused furniture to help with making more space and decided to recycle other old furniture items for Phase 2. Two old bookcases, some ols kitchen shelves and an oversized four drawer chest. The chest was far to deep so off came the back 8 inches, it was too tall so off came the top section and the top drawer and the parts went towards constructing a single drawer chest with vinyl storage underneath. The old kitchen shelves became vinyl storage dividers and, once it was all sorted, then came the paint job:

I've posted more pics to Dropbox for your viewing pleasure and as a reminder to me why my body aches so much and why I'm pretty exhausted.
For some time I couldn't decide on whether or or not to buy new materials for the job or recycle old furniture. If I bought new I'd would have to take all the old furniture etc. to the local dump for disposal along with any unwanted off cuts & waste from new materials so a recycling job won the day. In an ideal world and with a much larger Boom Room, I would have gone for big, chunky, battle scarred dark wood, the sort of thing reclaimed from Ye Olde Shippe.

Now, manoeuvring the long old bookcase timbers around in a Boom Room packed with delicate BB's was a nightmare in itself worrying about 'the other end' and what damage it may do whilst keeping an eye on the front end swing! I found this phase physically demanding but my spirit wasn't broken, just more fingernails. I lost count of the times I banged my head on the bottom BB shelf, splinters in my delicate hands were in abundance and the tea flowed like never before. I ache like I haven't in years but it was worth it.
There is still more to do with Phase 3 (storage for more vinyl, cassettes & CD's and display for several minis. Phase 4 will be the 'door side' of the room which currently has a low furniture unit with a few turntables on it. There's shelving brackets to hide, vinyl cover displays to put up, cables to run, lighting and much more besides. Did I mention the large expanse of naked ceiling? I'm sure I can think of something!
Enjoy - and "Thank you All" for the inspiration you have given me.
