Okey Dokey... time for  "NEW DIGS...The Sequel"...
and YES....that is a picture of me!
Come on ... that's me ... really!
Okay ... we'll just agree to disagree.

So the next step in my Pool Room Reno (that's what we in "the biz" call renovation)
is hiding my husband's huge, ginormous, UGlee (that's ugly with a capital UG).



Ugly ... right?
Okay ... so for some unknown reason, I can't trash ...  I mean donate these beauties, so my plan is to repurpose them ... hide them ... and then some time in the future ... when no one is looking ... donate them to some underprivileged music lover in a land far, far away!

So here's the long and short of it ... I decided to use these eyesores ... er ... lovelies as bases for another table ...
cuz these guys could hold up Dumbo!


This time ... I didn't even bother to run a gathering stitch.  In my on-going desire to take shortcuts ... excuse me ... streamline, I just hand gathered the material right around the speakers ... hot gluing as I went.  I didn't worry about damaging the speakers with the hot glue ... cuz,  well could they look any worse?

I topped them with a nice thick piece of plywood ... this time plain plywood was enough.  
But ... as my daughter ... Complicated Kai always said ... I never seem to know when to quit.



I just had to add a little more spice ... some more stripes.    Spray paint and tape ... easy peasy!
A few accessories ... a blue chair ... and the ugly speakers were a thing of the past.


We're half way there ... next time a little Writing on the Wall.  
Till then ... let me know what you wear when you're renovating.

I know you're all jealous of how good I look in my work wear ... 




It is me.......honest!
