(Wo)Man Cave

Remember this room?

Now it looks a little more like this…


Not as ugly

I had no intention of redecorating our loft space, but my cousin was moving out of her apartment and had some furniture to get rid of and I couldn’t let the opportunity pass by. A couple of coats of chalkboard paint, a new couch and armchair and some accessories completely turned the once overcrowded room into a less overcrowded room. There are still a few things left to do like draw on the walls and insert a bookshelf along the back of the space, but overall I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.

The Husband refuses to have me go on calling the loft a man cave though. Acoording to him, the pink pillow officially converts the space into female territory. So despite my orginally trying to create a nicer place for the Husband to enjoy football games, I inadvertantly turned it into my own haven where I can sip wine and watch Sex and the City in peace. Amen.

Did I catch your attention? Good. Now back to my boring home decor post, which has nothing to do with sex. I snatched these horn candlesticks at the flea market for $10. They’re replicas of much more expensive versions I’ve seen online. I’m going to spray paint them since the black isn’t really doing it for me. Should I go with a glossy white or a brassy gold? Tell me what to do.

We had an exhausting weekend filled with endless driving, relocating furniture, painting and other body-breaking work. The man cave is still in the works, but it looks like a completely new space after just 48 hours. I’ll post progress photos soon. Happy Monday cheries!
