Games Room Complete

I don't know what it is about anything a few inches off the ground,
 but boy, it's like a magnet for kids.
Brian's just completed a small project to finish off the Man Cave, um, I mean Games Room. Well, I guess we still need a few things on the wall, but that'll come. I was thinking movie posters maybe, but I'm open to suggestions. Okay, so last year we purchased four theatre seats, and a pool table.  This year, we decided we could fit four more seats in if we made a second row. Ideally they would be on a platform of some sort, to be able to maximize viewing pleasure, so a few Saturdays ago, he (I helped a little) did it up. I think it turned out pretty good.

I got a staple gun for Christmas, which came in quite handy when we attached the carpet. The platform is made from 2x8x12s and 2x8x8s (cut to 4' long) to support underneath. Then 3/4" plywood on top, covered in brown tip shear industrial carpet, just in case you were wondering.

If you're also wondering, the screen size is 104" if I'm not mistaken.

Family Silhouette Picture

Just had to share this little crafty project I recently completed. I saw this on a blog I regularly check in on - LOVE this blog. So glad I came across it. As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to make one. I'm not good at doing tutorials, so I'm not even gonna try. The short version is:
 1)Take profile pics of kids 2) print out on paper 3)Glue to black cardstock 4) cut out 5)glue to background of your choice (I pieced together some pretty srapbook paper that matched the room)
6) Frame and hang Voila!!
