The fun part....

Here we go.. the fun part!

As I said in my last post I still have a glass display cabinet coming that is in the same finish as the book shelves. I've also been looking out for a couple of nice chairs to go in the corner with a table... somewhere to relax whilst another commander takes his turn perhaps?

Still looks bare of course.. I have alot of things to go up on the walls yet. But all in good time. Still waiting on that Napleonic Print I ordered ..hmmm..

And of course, no table! I'll fix that this coming weekend... then I'm pretty much set...

I've got loads of room to paint, and the other workbench will be for the bigger jobs (such as cutting up tiles for modular terrain etc...).

I've still got a bunch of books to move outside too.. but as you can see it's taking shape!

Yep.. they came early, and while I wasn't sure about the carpet we chose, I have to say it looks excellent!

So there you have it.

Essentially a blank canvas to fill with gaming goodness!

Lights, paint, not quite action....

So.. I wasn't sure if I should wait until the carpet went in to update my blog, however the idea behind the blog was to show people a step by step of how it was done..

Again not much to write as I think pictures are what people really want to see.

So here is where I am up to:

So there you have it. The green feature wall colour wasn't quite the shade we thought, but overall I'm pretty happy with the way it looks. I think the carpet (which goes in Thursday) will make the room come to life. I'm pretty happy with the lighting, although I might get some adjustable display lights put in later on when I know where everything is going to be sitting.

Overall pretty happy and rather excited. The whole family got involved with the painting and apart from a few touch-ups that are needed I think we did a good job. More importantly, we had a good family weekend together.
