The next space that’s near completion in our home is probably my husband’s favorite! It’s the loft turned MAN CAVE (or something like it)! At our previous home, we lived in a townhouse that had 3 levels and the “basement” level served as his 1st man cave. Our new home doesn’t have a basement, of course, so instead of using one of the bedrooms, we agreed that the loft could be his gaming/movie hang out spot. My husband was responsible for pretty much all the design choices, meaning that I would put something some where and then he would move it when I wasn’t around. But seriously, he made a lot of the decisions regarding where the furniture and art went.
The art is on the wall going up the stairs from the Family Room to the Loft. The “Man Cave” art is from Hobby Lobby bought with a coupon and the metal art is from Big Lots.
Small “Movies” art- Garden Ridge Clearance
Other art- Ross
Bookcase- Ikea’s LAIVA
White ottomans- free from Mom
Red shag rug- Shaw
The 2 gaming chairs are Target clearance, leftovers from Black Friday. The back of the chair folds down to make an ottoman and you can store things under the seat. They have built-in speakers, and they’re compatible with my husband’s PS3 and ViewSonic projector.
Metal wall art- Bed Bath & Beyond (with 20% off coupon they always send in the mail)
Canvas art- Ross
Red Chair- American Signature Furniture
Side Table- Target clearance
Pub Table- Walmart’s Boraam Luna Adjustable Pub Table
Stools- Coaster Furniture (similar to these)
Art- old canvas art that my graphic designer sister painted over
Accessory- Garden Ridge clearance
Small music/kids’ space with antique school desk from Aunt AJ 🙂
The double doors lead to our bedroom, but that “Movies” sign that lights up (and was on clearance at Kirkland’s) gives a hint to my husband’s favorite part about this space.
A screen is mounted to the wall above the opening and can be pulled down when the projector is in use.
My husband and son can watch cable, vhs and dvd movies, and play the PS3. It’s a gamer’s paradise and according to my husband, this area of our home is the pièce de résistance!
For any technical questions about how electronic devices are hooked up, just ask and I’ll defer to my husband. 🙂
