What on earth is happening with that empty cabinet...?
Well... it's a bittersweet moment here at The House of War.
As many of you know (or at least whoever has kept up on this blog) I have a happy little son. He is two and a half, and just about the kindest, most lovable child I've ever known. He loves toy soldiers, and his toy cars (and repairing them) and is a great kid.
And now we are expecting #2... a little girl. My collection is (OCD) complete!
However, that comes with a caveat... the toy soldier room now has to be converted over to a bedroom:(
Down will come the table, the cabinets will disappear, the prints and antiques will come down... all of it.
Now, there IS an upside... we have a GREAT downstairs den that doubles as a guest room. It has lots of wall space, wood paneling, great shelves, a lit gun cabinet... and guess who is taking it over to display his figures?
Yep... me! So, I'll have some updates over the next few months as I disassemble the table and take apart the room... but the FIRST task was building these sliding-door cabinet fronts to keep my boys safe! I'll have the "how to" soon, but thought folks might like a peek!
Some day the House of War will return... I do anticipate, someplace down the line, having a permanent man cave in a future home, with several tables and a lot of other extras. So, someday, I'll be back with something great. In the meantime, however, a lot of the great photo opportunities will be on hold, with only the smaller projects and all featured.
So! I hope everyone can stick with me while the House of War becomes something else!
