The Poker Den

Well another project tackled (for the most part).  I’ve been wanting to turn our unfinished into a little hangout spot.  I’m liking how it’s shaping up so far, but I need some more quirky junk to decorate with.  I need to hit up some estate auctions or something for all sorts of weird stuff.  We scored a brand new folding poker table off of for a reasonable price.   It’s more sturdy than your average folding table and I was pretty impressed with the quality for as little as it cost.

I didn’t want to just set a poker table in an empty unfinished basement though.  I wanted it to look halfway lived in, so I’ve been trying to find some of the stuff that has been tucked away (or just never unpacked from move-in day).  Found some of the old Deep 6 stuff from the band I was in during high school.  And a few car parts I had laying around.  I guess those are decorative… better than a concrete wall I guess.  I want to get a bunch of the old tin signs and things like that.  And old neon sign from a bar or something would be sweet, but those things are expensive!

Eventually I want to get a nicer stereo to put down there.  I just have a little am/fm radio right now.  It’d be cool to put a small couch or loveseat down there, but I don’t know if it would fit down the stairs.  If you haven’t seen the entrance to my basement, it’s just like a trap door in the floor of my utility closet, and I really don’t think any real piece of furniture would fit through it!  But it would be nice to have some kind of comfortable seating down there and I could move my old 25″ TV down there with a Nintendo and/or DVD player so that players that get knocked out of a game have something to do.  Come to think of it… I bet a futon sofa would fit nicely!

So there’s the latest I’ve been up to.  Still a work in progress, but at least I’m not ashamed to show it now.  So come on over and help put it to good use!
