Because Rootbeer asked me to...The new Man-Cave!

In searching for a new name for this room BBB came up with “Supernova Lounge” in response to Stars’ 70k VPP gimme for me this year thanks to me being British. So that will more than likely be it’s new name once I’ve made it to supernova, if i don’t it may be called “Fail Lounge”

Now I’m not going to show what this room was transformed from because, frankly it’s embarrassing and only Lysistrata and anyone she’s shown the pictures to is fully aware of the lurking horrors of the time…and the incredibly busto chair.

What I can do, however, is a kinda step by step guide AFTER I’d got rid of most of the crap from the room.

Long story short we had a set of mirror’ed wardrobes in this room and it hadn’t been decorated in 15 years almost aside from a little paint and needed a full do-over. However removing the wardbrobes also pulled off a ton of plaster, half the coving and destroyed some of the skirting….I always hated that thing!!

The rubble left over after we’d got the wardrobes out.

Hmm maybe we were a bit firm yanking off the wallpaper? Ouch

Carpet comes up and good riddance…yeesh I got such burns from that thing.

Lining Paper is now on after we’ve done our best to fill in the damaged plaster on the walls but it’s not perfect

Laminate floor going down and first appearance of my version of Fail-Bear, “Drink Holding Panda”….this time without a drink…he’s been slacking off.

Truth be told I just found it in the mirrored wardrobe obviously stuffed there many many moons ago and he was something made by my mother surprisingly…tha’s not a bought one that’s hand made!!


New Halogen lights replacing that horror shade

Wallpaper goes on far side of the room, the rest will be a single pattern which is a fatal mistake we won’t make again…NO PATTERNS!!!

Beginning to fill room with stuff. New chairs, projector, Playstation 2 (to be upgraded to XBox 360 based on performance at the end of the year) etc.

Projector’s On!! And I have CURTAINS finally!!

They’re the speakers which aren’t up yet but will be shortly. 500 Watt jobby…should irritate the neighbours.

Focal Point, yup it’s the projector screen. What a nightmare THAT was to put in. Had to go into the loft with various lifeforms I imagine live up there now and screw in another piece of wood to screw the damn screen into.

Can’t not have a rug on a laminate floor :). Goes with the rest too.

Sub me for the panda and I think we have one relaxed Boomer.

Been a lot of hard work but I’m pretty sure it’s worth it. Love it at the moment and I’m pretty sure once I’ve got all my tech gizmo’s in here it’ll be even better.

Pretty awesome. Wish I had space for my own, looking at new TVs now but it'll probably have to wait until holiday discounts at the very least.

Careful or I lock all the windows in the "Open" position next time you come over Mr. Ribchester :)

I can't believe I missed so many posts. I can finally relax and stop tilting my face off about your horrible chair!
