Barn (and bar!) news.

.

Continuing in the if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em paradigm, I gifted the husband some nice new pool sticks.

.

.

Canadian maple of various colors and weights.

.

.

I also gathered some of the military patches he’s had stuck in his drawer for years.

.

.

I’m trying to think of some way to display them… you know, a way that doesn’t involve sewing. Because my love only goes so far.

.

.

A few man cave appropriate books were dropped on the table…. and then –

.

.

Our bar building contractor showed up with the top of the bar.

.

.

I have to admit I was liking the 3 different shades of wood colors….

.

.

Until I realized that was the unfinished side. But after it was sanded down and smoothed, even the husband agreed it would need to be stained before the polyurethane.

Victory is mine!

.

.

And that called for a drink. Or a cocktail in a pretty can as the case may be.

  1. Ohh the Marine Man Cave is looking pretty darn good! As for those patches, you can fine a shadow box, and use liquid stitch to adhere them to a nice felt (or whatever material) of your choice. Now sewing needed AND you can remove them later should the hubs want a change. Those cocktails look awesome! 🥃🍸🍹🧉🍷🥂🍻🍺

  2. Like The Huntress I liked the idea of a shadow box for the patches but I guess that’s been nixed.
    It’s the pool cues that really impress me, though. I bet your husband’s a bit of a shark. Maybe he’ll talk the contractor into a game of nine-ball and win a free renovation.
