This week’s update for my One Room Challenge ManCave Garage is all about creating a fabulous artwall (using Posterjack) and sourcing the furniture for the mancave. Garage Living starts next week so I don’t have any garage progress pictures to show you — YET. Last week’s post was all about the finishes for the garage so this week’s post is focused on decorating the mancave part of the garage. This is the area that I’m talking about:
The decor theme is all about motorcycles, cars and sports — everything a typical man loves, My first idea was to go with a very cool den-like vibe with a sofa, coffee table in black and white, accessories in stainless steel, with pops of colour coming from the artwall. I also fell in love with the checkerboard flag rug from IKEA. This is what I envisioned.
My husband loved the rug and the artwork I’m getting made from Posterjack but he had a slightly different vision. Sean wanted to go more with a cafe/pub/bistro look. So we kept the rug and started doing some research on Amazon. And then we found these fabulous bar stools replicating motorcycle seats and that was it. SOLD! Here is the revised vision board for the mancave.
I’m in love with these stools….they are so unique and fit in perfectly with
our Sean’s mancave decor theme! The neon H-D clock is also quite adorable.
The artwall is going to consist of the 3 earlier themes I mentioned….Harley Davidson, Porsche and baseball – specifically the Toronto Blue Jays. As a surprise (but not so much once he reads this post) for my husband I got a 24 x 38 sized canvas of his Porsche and a 18 x 24 image of the Blue jays ALCS game 5 opening ceremonies (a picture he took) re-imagined in photo board for the artwall. I also got something made at Posterjack of his motorcycle which will have to wait until next month’s reveal….but its going to look fab-u-lous!!!!!!
Intermingled with these pictures and other framed photos of his Harley & Porsche is going to be some vintage & one of a kind items he has purchased at auctions and on the internet. Its going to be a gallery wall that all men will lovingly gaze at & drool over for hours. I can’t wait to show you!!!!
That’s it for this week. Don’t forget to check out what all my fellow #ORC participants are blogging about by going to Linda’s Calling it Home website! And check out Posterjack’s website — you can save up to 50% on select sized canvas prints…now that’s a great deal!
