Update The Man Cave

Well the hubs went out of town last week for a conference sooo what does that mean??   Oh ya time to do some work on his man cave.  It has needed a redo for a long time.  How do I explain how ugly it is?  It is dark, dreary and full of leather furniture and it also has a new leather theater chair (which I hate).   I have always had problems with this room.  The hubs loves this room and hates change.  I have tried to make it cozy but I always get grief from him and the boys.  They use it for football games, playing video games and just hangin out.  The last redo I painted it red thinking it would go with all our Oklahoma Sooner stuff but in the end I didn't really like it.  I have been wanting a change in this room for a while so now is the perfect time.

This is the only before picture I have I was in a hurry to get started so forgot to take photos of the whole room.  Oh ya it's red and don't you just love that green berber carpet?... NOT   I need to order a new couch but the hubs says it feels like love of a good woman just wraps around him....He's crazy!!!  Maybe I can find a really good leather treatment for it. 

Here is a sneak peak of the new wall color I forgot the name it's Sherwin Williams something I'll look it up and let ya'll know.  It already looks great it really changed the feel of the whole room.  I also added some crown molding to the top, it has a really weird ceiling line and need something to make it look a more put together.  I have yet to figure it all out but I'm working on it.  I also ordered new carpet  and hopefully it will be in and laid in a couple of weeks.  So be on the look out I hope to have it finished soon.
