I finally got to set up the game room in the house with some more things I like. Some recent additions included a nice comfy couch and a mini fridge. It’s slowly on its way to becoming the perfect dude hangout spot.
Last season I was able to add a pool table with the help from a buddy who does a lot of shopping around. He picked a used table up for me at around half the cost of a brand new one. It even comes with a cover, and a rack for the cues. This is a great thing to do to unwind and practice some fancy trick shots too.
This table was put in just before the floors were redone. I had to go with carpet because it’s way more relaxing than wood or tile. We can walk around in the room barefoot and it’s still comfy. The carpet is a low pile gray one I picked out at the local carpet shop. I figure it’s warm enough and can hide any stains that happen to be picked up. No shoes allowed in here anyway though!
I’ve been thinking about setting up a little bar in the room too. I could get a cabinet for it that opens out. The mini fridge can keep any mixers cold, and I’d just need some ice trays too. The guys and I have collected a nice stash of glass shots during traveling and it would be the perfect opportunity to show them off. I’ve been browsing some display cases available at ShotglassDC.com and they look pretty doable. I just need a place to store them and show em off when they’re not in use.
This isn’t meant to be a place to just get hammered though. I got a TV set up here recently and wired the satellite from the roof. I have dozens of channels on the favorite list to just unwind to when I need to get away from it all. I just need to get some sort of recorder box set up to tape my favorite shows when I’m not there.
A few more additions added, but some more decorating and furniture to be added to my room. It’s fun setting it up, but not quite done yet!
