The Man Cave (Part Two)



TOP TEN ESSENTIAL ITEMS FOR A MAN CAVE



1. Refrigerator. (Why do you think David is standing there? He is standing in front of the total entertainment center: a mini-fridge with a TV on top. Really.)

2. TV. This TV is hooked up for games, and it also has a video player. (I would not ever recommend that cable be available in a room where teens are not held accountable. Y'all know me better than that!)

3. Bean bag chairs. Of course! Btw, several items in the man cave are donations from our neighbors, who call my boys instead of calling Goodwill. LOL.


4. Stage. There is also a cleaned-out area where the guys can jam. (It is located right next to the air vents. I can hear them all through the house when they get the guitars going. I kinda feel like Shirley Partridge!)






5. A Chuck Norris Poster. It's to the far left in this picture. It has lots of inspirational sayings on it, such as, "The true definition of pi is Chuck Norris" and "Before he forgot a gift for Chuck Norris, Santa Claus was real."

6. Duct tape. The boys built a storage unit using milk crates and duct tape. (I think one can build anything with duct tape. ) Duct tape is absolutely essential for any self-respecting man-caver. My mom-in-law sticks a roll of duct tape in each of the boys' stockings at Christmas, and they are always thrilled to receive it!

7. Air hockey table. Competition. Sarcasm. Shameless manly pride.

8. Skateboard. So Derek can "shred" all over the concrete floor.

9. Graffitti. I love the wall art!

10. Men! What's a man cave without the guys?

I would LOVE to have a space like this for my "men"! They "men" across the street from us have a mother-in-law suite attached to their house. They converted it and now call it "Man Town".

Duct tape-Great for hemming pants!

You MUST get your boys to do the following...
Go to Google.
Type in Find Chuck Norris
Then click "I'm feeling lucky".

If they haven't seen this before, I think it will really crack them up! (let me know)

OK that is looking good. And I really like the idea of the crates and duct tape...it actually looks good! We have the 2 sets of drums in the basement, go figure!
Tell the boys a cow-skin rug shure would set it off though!!

PS I have parental locks on ALL our tvs that have cable...much to my kids friend's chagrin!! I can sit at the computer and hear the complaining in the living room, LOL!! My boys are just like "yeah, whatever"!!

Rebecca,

This is AWESOME! So delighted to know that mine is not the only house with a room that looks like this.

Wish I had a picture of ours to show you...frige, t.v. basketball goal, Rock Band stage area, keyboard, and best of all GIANT CAROLINA PANTHERS BANNER. The things we do in our homes for our men!!

This is so funny! I love your man cave and good for you to have such a great place for your guys to hang out. A man cave is so different from a girl palace isn't it?

Danielle said...

Wow! They did a fantastic job on that. Love the crates and duct tape. I am learning that you can use the stuff for [anything].

I love this! Duct tape in the stocking cracked me up. God made a strange but delightful creature when He created man. LOL!

And you are a ROCKIN MOM!
