I wish so much that I had a pony room.  My current living situation means that I've got a very comfortable house but lack the required space.  My ponies are all currently in good quality single layer storage bins where they're safe from sunlight or squishing.  The containers are transparent, so it kinda-sorta means I get to admire them a bit, but it's just not the same as setting up a dedicated room where everything can be co-ordinated by set or theme. I hope that one day the dream will become reality!

I am here to show you one of the beautiful curses that comes with a pony room! Time to rearrange!

I have one wall of matching shelves and a husband who needs motivating to make more. Until then, I am always on the hunt for awesome display options. Sometime soon there will be a picture of the new shelf--- this is the pile of treasures that had to move out of the way!

One thing i will never do without again- somewhere comfy to sit! The loveseat is nice, and easy to cover with something pink.

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?

Wow, your post could have been written by me! I've also paused my collection for years and recently became a home owner and I'm going to turn a room in the basement into my pony room! Thanks for creating this thread, I'm sure I'll find lots of inspiration here for my basement pony room as well. :)

I had a basement pony room, let me just toss some stuff out there. These actually happened to me.

The walls were stone, and though they didn't seem damp, i had a couple boxes that leaned on them and were damaged by invisible moisture.

A 100-year flood happened, and most basements in town flooded. One pony had fallen to the floor overnight, and her package was ruined. She was stored off the floor, just chose a terrible time to jump.

Just a couple thoughts to keep in mind, the basement is awesome and dark and like any other room, has things to consider.

Congrats on pony rooms! I swear I am not trying to be a downer, just realistic!

You have a giant Frilly Frocks!  I wish I had been interested in getting her when G3 was current.  Not like I have room for her, but she is so neat!  I have never seen one in RL.

May 12! That is the tenative date for the May Meet! You could pet her!

I got her from the last Wisconsin Meet i went to, my nephew James had to share the back seat with her! He made a bet with me that if I made most of the cost for her, he would pay the last $20. Everyone at the meet bought something just to help out! It was amazing!

Stalking this thread so I can drool over the pony rooms!!  I've only got two shelves, but they are all much loved. :)

Lol!  I will mark that down in case we can make it.  That's great!  What does she even run these days?

So jealous of all these beautiful pony rooms! I have plans drawn for when I can make some space for my ponies. In the meantime I'll bask in the awesomeness of your rooms.

I could stare at your room/collection all day... are those IKEA Billy shelves on the left? What are the measurements of your risers? They look like the perfect dimensions for display. My husband is going to make me some. Oh, and are those those clear plastic egg trays you have your seaponies in?!
