Tour of the man cave....

Well I have talked about it a few times but never really shown this room. So I thought I would give you a little tour of the "Man Cave" so here goes.....



So these first few pictures are different angels of the area where we have a living room set up. You can see Henry's big screen that my sister gave us when they bought a newer model. You also can see the rug we got him for fathers day. The navy pillows on the couch I found at Ross they are huge and I only paid $4 each for them. I love that store.












This is a picture looking at the office area which is a cubby of piles really. On the wall is mine and Henry's awards from high school and before and also Zack's. Unlike his brother Zack doesn't want his all over his room.









This wall is above the couch. It has Henry's coaches plaques. Some are from years ago and some are recent. The pictures are from the last several years with CHS.








So this is Henry's weight bench that I got him for Christmas. If you could see it daily you would see all the dust from lack of use. Also the cast iron wood stove with the wonderful brick hearth that made me fall in love with this space. This is also our only source of heat downstairs.







This is the boys trophy case from the time Zack was 5 to the present. I am very proud of them....





This is our make shift library. I really need to find a bigger bookshelf. If you will notice the carrier on top of the shelf Henry used to work at NNS. He was a shipfitter. He loves carriers and anything to do with them.



So these are pics of the man cave bathroom still being updated. If any of you come across anything in our area that will go with the nautical theme I am building let me know.....




So this picture is the little hallway outside the bathroom goin back into our storage area that really has the potential to be another bedroom it also goes into my laundry room. The reason for this picture I would like you to notice the picture of the Duke on the wall.....





While we love having this space for Henry we want to replace the dark paneling with sheetrock and fresh paint and eventually replace the carpet and tiled floor... I will add that to my dream list for my house which is getting very long....


God bless....

Hey Girl! It has been a while since I have been able to check your blog and it looks awesome! I love your background. Crystal and I hate that we were not at the cookout yesterday. We were not informed!!!! We would have come had we known. We are very jealous and miss you all. T

Oh, my husband would die to have a "man cave!"

Yeah... I think she must have told her that morning and she could go. She told me Thursday or Friday night and I had to work. :-( Where did you get your template from? I love it.
