Looks great ! You are going to have lots of eye candy, to keep everyone from spending most of their time admiring the floor!

Yes it's just painted osb John....it was a lot easier to put in than Sheetrock and you can put screws or nails anywhere to hang signs, etc...GB

Can you tape OSB so you don't see the seams like sheetrock?

The room looks very nice--the floor tops it off great!

I've never seen osb taped like Sheetrock, Nicole. I did fill the seams with paintable siliconized caulk before I painted it and it looks pretty good. The seams are stil there, but not as noticeable and the caulk lets the sheet expand and contract a little bit at the seam still. I wouldn't use it in a house but it works for the shop....GB

Looks great, but you will need a bigger room, trust me.

I knew it wouldn't be big enough Craig but I talked myself into thinking that if I kept it small I would stop accumulating so much. That's not working either because the up stairs storage more than tripled my room to put more stuff and the new room is not even big enough to display all of the best things I wanted to put out. It's a losing proposition any way you slice it.....gb

I love what you're doing and enjoy seeing the progress.

A collector's display space never seems to be enough. I came to that realization myself. A space limit encourages the collector to tighten a specialty focus and pull out lesser items to make room for new additions.
