Man Cave Progress

24 Feb

Happy Sunday! I just wanted to give you guys a little update on our basement, it is really coming together! Finally almost everything is done except a few little touches. But I am going to share it with you anyways…. πŸ™‚

So I would just like to take you back first to where we started….

So since my last post of ideas for the basement, there has been a bit of a change. Although we went to IKEA and got some slipcovers to go over our old couch and chair, unfortunately they did not fit. So, that being said we kept the IKEA futon, and thought we would use that as a couch instead. Our basement is pretty small, so it actually worked out better. We went back to IKEA, and bought a new grey chair that is super comfy with the money from the returned covers!! We also have a coffee table that will be coming down here shortly….

Here is our new grey chair from IKEA… it’s called the KIVIK for $250 (The pillow is Ralph Lauren from Homsense, and the blanket is Hudson Bay)

We moved the bar fridge beside the futon (now Adam doesn’t even need to get up lol). We still need to get some photos for the picture frames – Going to try and find some great group shots of our friends (I’m sure that won’t be too hard).

We were finally able to hang Adam’s draft Jersey!! That was a pretty big moment in his life, so I think it is great we get to display it finally. Β We bought the white bench from IKEA and the pillows are from Homsense. The picture to the left is of team Canada, Adam’s parents gave that to him.

Here is our Chalk Board wall πŸ™‚ I think it turned out so awesome!!! You can kind of see in the pic we actually got a piece of cork board and also painted it with the chalk board paint, just so we don’t have TOO many holes in the walls. Adam also had this idea to take an old hockey stick and hang some of his old Jerseys.

Adam has played for a lot of teams over his career, so we had to keep it limited to 6 jerseys… lol.. a girl can only look at so many jerseys ya know? The picture at the end is actually something the Blackhawks gave him from his first NHL game – It’s the game sheet & the puck… pretty cool.

We just put up this bar area today. We got a super old piece of barn wood from a little shop downtown and got the supports from Homedepot. I am going to paint the supports but leave the wood, I think it looks so rustic and awesome.

Just need some bar stools and we are ready to party!

This little area is where we are keeping all the booze! Still needs an old rustic mirror to go on the wall, don’t ya think?

So there you have it, Adam’s little man cave. We are both so happy with it – and I think we found the perfect balance of manly and still flowing with the rest of the house! Now we just need to have a party πŸ™‚

KT, XO
