You need to smell of leather and rich mahogany when you're on the trail! I like to LARP as a much richer man, its hell on the wife, taking a "fake it till you make it" approach. Did you paint them to match the carpet? I like it. I really wanted some kahki carpet for the top of the drawers, thought that'd be better for the safari look.
I feel like we are in that old Ricardo Montalban Chrysler commercial for the "Cordoba"!! LOL
I was thinking of some carpet to match as well but found it was too slick so I went with a spray on bed liner from advanced auto. it was a very close match and gives a nice texture to the drawers.
