Spencer’s ‘Man-Cave’ Project is Underway – [Photos]

There comes a time in every man’s life when he has to take back what is his; with his wife’s permission of course.

After I received her permission, it was time to start working. I began by unloading the room; moving every bit of furniture and pictures out of the room to give me more space for repairs.

After everything was gone, I laid down tarps and then began to pull out the remainder of the nails still in the walls and take down the window treatments. After that, I began to repair the old nail holes, knock, dings and scratches with spackle.

While that was drying, I began mixing the paint and laying out the brushes, rollers and pans. After applying some trim tape around the areas I didn’t want to get paint on, it was off to the races and after about an hour and a half, the office was painted. I did forget one step: Get the dust off everything you can before you paint, including ceiling fan blades and baseboards.

After letting the paint dry, I pulled the tape up and touched up a few areas I missed in my weariness. The light and plug covers went back on and then it was time to start reinstalling the furniture.

There was a lot of moving around and a lot of, ‘Why did you put that big thing over there, Spencer? It would look better over there.’ …I better not go there.

Suffice to say that it took a little longer to get finished with that exercise, but a good result was accomplished. Then the centerpieces, I would build the rest of the of the room around them.

As I get more done, I’ll post more pictures. What else would look good in my man-cave?
