|Meanwhile, a little Fallishness|
We are hard at work on the ManCave, and at the end of the post, I will give you one little sneak peek of the progress. I have also done a little Falling here and there, so I will give you a little peek at that, too. (HINT: look at the new header.) I told you though, that I would show you what I have done to four of the tables I already had, which are getting revised, revamped, re-shuffled and reused. I said you would probably be surprised. Here we go.
First, the coffee table above I have had in my LR for a while (which had already been revised from white to green as well as getting the tray handles removed) got a new color -- Indigo, mixed by me -- and is going to the ManCave, mainly because I can't buy a new one right now, and besides, this one is tall enough that our little PB foot stools will scoot under it. I still need to get the dark glaze and sealer on it.
Second, the one above which had been in the ManCave by default -- much too dressy for that room, really -- got some STAIN! Walnut, like it was before it was banged up with years of use. I was going to paint it French Linen and put it back in there, but the stools wouldn't fit under it, and I didn't really want it French Linen in the LR. So I re-stained it. (Can you believe I did that?) It now looks like it did when I first got it back in the Dark Ages. (That time period was about twenty-three years ago for those who don't study history.) An old friend (Carol T.) many long years ago defined the Dark Ages to me as "early matrimonial", referring to her parents' BR furniture that she had inherited. That always amused me, but then, I am easily amused.
Third, the end table (above) of that group is going back in the ManCave because (a) I already have it, and (b) I didn't have to spend any money. Right now it is languishing in the garage, re-stained like it's larger sib because the ManCave is currently a work in progress.
Fourth, the last table you may recognize if you have been reading this blog for a while. It was bought for and used in the kitchen, and then we decided to turn the kitchen into a lounge with a table just big enough for the two of us. This chunker from Thomasville's old Bramasole group, has been cleaned up and will get a light wipedown with stain to refresh the finish. It, too, is waiting patiently in the garage for the trip up to the ManCave.
And then, on to Fallishness...
|Breakfast on the porch.|
|Divide and conquer! The only way to manage this room was to paint first the front to completion and then shove all the stuff to this end and paint the other side.|
|These cabinets still need another coat of Linen White.|
Hope you enjoyed a little peek at my Fall decor... Last, enjoy this sneak preview of the ManCave transformation.
