Snare rack build from old display cabinet

So our newest partner is a drummer too, & we have drums everywhere. We're starting to rearrange the live room, & plan to organize the drums with shelves & racks. I thought I'd post a few pictures of the snare rack as I go along. It's an old display case, missing the counter top, in need of some serious love! When finished it should hold about 20 snare drums.

Glass out & cabinet painted. I saw some of the nice old wood underneath, & I thought about stripping & refinishing for a hot minute. It would look quite nice, but I decided I'm too lazy. Cleaning the glass, soft bedding, & reassembling will have to wait for the morning. I'll probably leave the small sliding doors out to see the drums better.

Finished. A few drums for decoration. Going to place carpet padding inside the wires so they don't talk back. In the future I may create a wedge for them to sit in. But right now, it feels good.

Thanks guys.
I love it when a plan comes together. We have another display case, maybe I could turn it into a ____? Actually, next up is shelving for the kits.

You need spaces....if not, going to be a bitch grabbing 1 and putting 1 back.....the color is a bit gay, but I like it overall. Maybe some
Metal/Crome sides? You don't want to bang em
Up, spacers!!!!!
