Man Cave Activities

Man cave 2I haven’t updated you in while on the “man cave” activities, so here it what is going on.  The biggest change is the walls have been re-plastered and should be dry enough for paint on Monday.  I am amazed how much the new plaster has improved the space, no more cracks and everything is even. The landlord let me help pick the paint and we decided on a very light butter yellow.

I also got this great desk from the thrift store last week for only 10 euro.  I have been working hard getting it ready for use. Don’t gasp but I am actually taking the paint off. I know, I know, so not Maggie, but the paint job was too horrid to go over and when I started to strip it off it appears to be solid mahogany . But it will not be totally paint free, you’ll just have to wait and see.

What else, Oh yes, my thrift store chairs have a new look with a sleek coat of black paint. You’ll see were this is going in the next photo.chairs

Which brings me to the most exciting news! My fabric arrived yesterday and I can’t wait to get my hands on it. Well actually, I already have .The first chair cushion is done as you can see below. Isn’t this fabric great! I can’t wait to get them all complete for a big reveal of the finished chairs.

So now I am off to the next hurtle, finding a rug here in Germany or at least finding a company that will ship to an APO. Wish me luck! If you have any suggestions on a good source I am taking recommendations.

I'd love to hear what you think!
