    So, I've been wanting a case for a while now but could never find a legitimate Oakley Case for sale locally (and if I did, it was far and I don't have a truck)...

    Wife found this case at IKEA and thought it would be great for glasses and other junk I have, but I'm not 100% convinced that Freddy and Pennywise look good up at the top as I feel they're too close to the ceiling...

    ...for the whole setup, my wife did 90%+ of the work...

    1) She drove to IKEA during lunch and bought both cases
    2) She put the cases together (which was the hardest part lol)
    3) She measured and marked the holes
    4) *I* picked up the shelves and mock fit them on the wall
    5) She drilled the holes
    6) She installed the glass bases and wiped everything down after she was done

    Soooo, for $110 (after tax) I got a couple of really nice cases side by side to hold my modest collection, and I'm happy about that :)

    If you notice, I'm in need of one more XMETAL, preferably another XX (or maybe an XM XS, not sure)...

    I have worked deals with these people in the past and I will gladly work deals with them in the future - they helped me get to where I'm at, which is not nearly as much as others, but this small collection puts a smile on my face every time I see it, and now I have a pretty decent display piece...

    Looks very cool, I like that is not just sunnies but sunnies and other items of interest, mixed in together, gives it an awesome eclectic vibe.
    Doors that can close keeps the dust off too, wish I had that.
    Strong work @Litos
