Next, drywall is in and we're just waiting for all the mud to dry before painting. In the interim, I should be running around with Pledge, dust cloths, and a vacuum but it almost feels pointless. The dust always returns! Our house currently looks haunted the dust is so plentiful.
New family room with utility room beyond. That vacuum got a work-out!
Boys' toys provides a nice segue to that men's hunt club theme from the last post. To cover up the purple and gray sheetrock we're going with an accent wall of Benj. Moore Anchor Gray and an overall color of Dune Grass. I'd show you the swatches but the online versions look nothing like the real deal, so you'll have to wait for next week when we've finished painting.
Then we've got the chair and ottoman I was talking about. It's a dead-ringer for this one, color and all:

Lastly, as promised, here's a shot of the loot I picked up Sunday afternoon. The paisley is a low pile velour-type deal, the green/gray striated velvet has an awesome sheen that you can see if you look at the strip next to the selvage, and the plaid/houndstooth fabric is a drapery-weight woven. I realize they probably look really dark, but we all know there are two black labs who will call this room home and their fur is not to be messed with.
