The start of my new project...

Before Picture

Besides working on the two kitchen remodels that are taking up most of my time, I'm starting a new project.  My dad asked me to design his office. He is a construction superintendent for a company in Marysville.  Their office is in a pretty cool converted old house.  The architecture is very inspiring and I'm hoping that it comes together like I envision it. dad, he's man's man, he likes motorcycles, jeeps, hunting  and all things "guy", which means my design has to be masculine.  I'm still brainstorming but here's what I'm thinking...deep gray walls, industrial elements like metal mixed with aged leathers and I sure some deer antlers will find their way in there!   I envision vintage finds mixed with sleek modern elements.  I've already found a generic metal desk for $20 bucks that I'm transforming into a high-style piece (hopefully) with a little paint and some elbow grease. Also picked up a great industrial stool that I plan on  recovering with some great aged leather.  This is going to be a fun, yet challenging experience because like most people he is trying to do it on a budget.  I will post more as the project progresses and pictures when it's complete.
