Show me some pony rooms! Please + Thank you!
« on: January 18, 2018, 01:24:15 AM »
So some background, my collection has been on pause for a few years now. Got my career and now I am a homeowner. As I look to the future, I've decided, to transform my tiny basement into a Pony Room. Always wanted one and it would me give me a reason to unpack the collection. I am willing to sink a grand or so into the project but I'll end of with a finished basement, storage, and a sweet pony hoard location.

So peeps, I'd like to see your pony rooms so I can start getting ideas for my own. Before and after pics would be great too. What were some of the challenges you faced in creating a Pony space? What are some tips that you think would save me some time or would make the end product looking nice? Anything to avoid? What are the must haves of a space like this?

First spoiler is pics of the pony room in my previous house. Mismatched shelves, constant rearranging while I started collecting.
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

This spoiler is my current ponyroom. (The room is physically unfinished- I tacked up white sheets over the studs&insulation as there's no drywall, and bought cheap rugs to cover the plywood floor. Someday when we finish our basement I'll put a pony room down there)
I much prefer the uniform shelving. White book cases on one side, acrylic racks on the opposite wall. More playset space would be nice, but it's a small room.

For sure love those white book shelfs, and that lighting!!!! How much fun us that! I dont collect playsets, but it is something to consider when designing the space. I'll have to keep that in mind. Thank you for the pics!

There's a pic of the vintage section of mine. I highly suggest getting matching shelves if you can for your pony room. I find it makes everything look more organized and cleaner.

Wow! Fantastic collection by the way! And yes matching shelving seems the best course. What did you use for the risers?

I wish I had a pony room to enjoy my ponies.  This dream castle has probably been brought of storage only twice in the past twenty years.  When I received Dasher I decided to bring some of my collection out to breath for awhile and meet him.

I love that curl!  That's why she, too, stays in storage alot.  I've had some minty ponies w/ factory curl that, if i had them out, started to loose the curl.
