Mancave Makeover

The mancave hasn't been painted in years. 
I may have touched up the walls a few years ago but the color is drab and dirty. I painted everything in this house a creamy yellow back in the late 90s. 
 I used a Walmart paint that has held up pretty well for its age.
I'm just over the butter yellow walls. 

 You may see my mancave board here
We have most of this. 
It it strange that our loveseat looks to be the exact one I found on Polyvore? 
We bought ours at The Dump in Dallas about three years ago.
We have the chair too.

I need to scrape popcorn and paint the walls gray. 

I have been putting off scraping this because of the section over the stairs and entry. 

Bill said he will help but we are dreading it. 
 I also have never painted the stair railing white like I did downstairs. 

Do you think a potential buyer would notice?
Not that we are selling but the stain works up here where it didn't downstairs.   

Bill would like a different entertainment center. 
He has hardware to mount his new T.V. on the wall. 

Bill made a crate coffee table and a log end table. 
Those will stay.

The other club chair isn't exactly what we have. 
Ours has a kilim sort of tapestry on the sides which is why I put the poof in the collage.
We also would need to switch the end tables. 
Bill is over these country tables.

There you have it. 
It is supposed to be 100 all week so this isn't getting done yet.
This was one of my summer goals but I'm not sure I'll make it happen before school starts. 
What are you up to today?

  1. are you going to change the flooring because to me carpet does not say man cave.

    1. Probably not. The area is open to the stairs and hall. It is in good shape so for now, it stays.

  2. Hi Katie,
    It is so hot here in Chicago land too. We got up to 90 today and Terry and I worked outside all day. I know when you paint and get started on the mancave it will look wonderful. I love the gray. Have a good week.

  3. The log table looks great with the brown leather couch. Changing the wall color will make a lot of difference. I love what you have planned. Just getting started is the hardest part, especially when you have to scrape popcorn first.
