He's laying on some Red Sparrow comics. Of course.
I got done with a slew of client projects yesterday and am rewarding myself by dedicating myself to having a Red Sparrow day.
The chest in the back is a work in progress Lisa and I have been doing. I got the chest/ottoman dirt cheap a few years ago at a thrift shop. We stripped the hideous covering off the base and then tightly wrapped the entire base in sisal rope. A few staples held it in place before we glued everthing down nice and tight. Bascially it's one big cat scratcher. If I were going to do it over I would have gotten a length of dark brown colored rope and put that in to break up the color a bit.
I'm delighted with it though and it's what I keep most of my bookbinding supplies in.
