Introduction: Man Cave

Picture of Man Cave

I moved into my wifes mothers house, and the garage was full of old stuff collected over the years, so i decided to turn it into my own Man Cave !

Step 1: Cleaning

First I had to take everything out, and throw away the old stuff that wasnt needed, this took about 3 days ....

Step 2: Wall

Next, some of the wall was missing in the back of the garage, so I hung some up from lowes

Step 3: Paint

Next was the paint, I wanted to do something cool, so i made 2 different color diamonds
First I cleaned the walls, and painted them gray

Next I measured the wall and ran tape down so that it formed diamonds

I then painted every other diamond black, then the others green

after the paint dried, i removed the tape, and there you go, diamonds

Step 4: Bar

next I made the bar, the first thing i did was take an old metal rack in the garage and cut it down, then I attached wood to the sides that had brick pattern on it, then added a wooden top and painted it black

Next I painted the old book shelves black and darkened the wood.

next I put up all the bottles, and sports crap I had

I also made a poker table, and added tv and pool table

i think what happened was that his mother in law moved and he moved into her old house.

I want to take all the stuff out from one wall of my garage and put up a wall and ceiling there. I think there is a small black berry bush on the other side holding what is there, up.
