With a week of school under my belt I've been using the weekend to recharge the battery. Sleeping in, dinner and drinks with friends, binge watching Stranger Things and finally . . . baseball cards!
Judson recently asked that we show off our card rooms and that's what I'm here to do today. It's a picture heavy post, which should make it a quick read. Here we go!
I thought about showing a picture of my mailbox to start things off, but really this is my cardboard journey begins.
Let's hit the actual card room, which my wife and refer to as the Man Room. Below are pictures of what one sees when they first enter the 12.5' by 14' room.
here. I spend a lot of hours on the green two-seater, as you can probably tell by the cushions.
For the record, the stop light works! I also have some ivy along the ceiling of the room to give it a little of that Wrigley feel. If you look closely along the baseboard on the right you can see a blue speck. That's one of my wife's Dove chocolate wrappers that we give the cats to play with. Simple pleasures.
Here's a shot of the closet, which is pictured in the right of the above two pictures.
Math Man" on a couple of occasions. I'm a nerd, I know.
One of my summer projects was adding in three wood shelves to each side of my Card Closet. I'm much happier with the usable space I have now.
The next picture in the roll should have been a picture of the entryway to the room . . . oops. I didn't take one. Doorways are boring any way.
The door is flanked by the recliner and bat rack on one side and this corner on the other side. Hanging from the ceiling is my Fear the Fleer entry for Thorzul's Nightmare on Cardboard 2013 contest, which I couldn't part with.
Lastly, we have the television stand which I completed about a year and a half ago. It houses baseball singles organized in boxes, a couple of binders, DVDs, books and bobbleheads. I absolutely love this piece.
Thanks for taking the tour with me.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
