Man Cave Make Over


"Lake front property with gorgeous view. Needs a little TLC. Quick sale. As is."

The listing was right about the view, but the small Lake House was in need of a LOT of help. Only one station worked on the TV; the beer fridge made a loud humming sound that drowned out the birds. The beer and cup-o-noodle stains could be cleaned, but the "art" and recliner would have to go.



A major scrub down later, and the Lake House was as good as new.

Deets: Neville House by CB2 sold in 2011. Chairs, credenza, lamp are MaryAnn Roy. Table is Paul MacAlister. Ball clock is minimodernistas. TV is Hallmark ornament, has lights and plays ESPN theme jingle. Accessories are Re-Ment, Kaleidoscope House, Studio 7, HBS Miniatures, and for the life of me I can't remember who made the glass bottles (I bought a bunch of them and can't find the artist's info). Anyone recognize? Updated: Okay, thanks Callsmall, it is Ray Storey. When I saw him in Chicago he only had lighting and no more bottles so I thought they weren't his. I'll have to email him to see if he'll make more.

  2. Cool!! It's a sweet little house -- I enjoy it. The glass bottles aren't Ray Storey, are they?

    1. I bought them at Good Sam, but don't have any photographs of them with the other items I bought. I could have sworn they were Ray Storey, but when I saw him at Chicago International he only had gas lamps and lighting and nothing like these bottles, so I thought it must have been someone else. Maybe he stopped making them? I hope he makes them again, I only bought six and I want more!

  3. What a fun scene! I laughed when I saw the TV - it's huge! But totally appropriate :) Love how the re-design is so bright and colourful too.

    1. The TV is 1:12 scale so it is HUGE in this space, but fitting. :D
