The Mancave

Ben's room is the room over the garage, so it is huge!  The builder did such a nice job, though, of making it not seem like the room over the garage.  There are no steps up or down from the hallway and it just flows naturally from the rest of the upstairs.  Because his room is so big, we can kind of do fun things with it.  Including the jutted out area for a dormer window.

This is what it looked like before (ignore the huge tv-it is still there from a New Year's Eve party-our feeble attempt to keep the children upstairs and away from the grownups!) 

Wow, that picture makes me dizzy just looking at it.  Way too much going on.  It's basically a toy storage area, which is great, I would much rather have it stashed over there, but since we have lived here, I have felt that the space deserved something more.  It has a semi-ugly built in desk, which will come in handy down the road, but for now, it's blah.  There was a shelf mounted along the wall where the toy cubbies are, but my sister and I ripped it out.

Ben decided he wanted it to be his Mancave.  I said something about it being a fort or a hide out-and Mancave is where he went. 

So, this is what it looks like right now....

I have been told that even though it says Boys Only, Moms are allowed to enter-but only sometimes.  And Allie and Coleman can come in, too-sometimes. 

It still isn't too Mancave-y, but at least we have it closed off and cleaned out!  And the curtains are really navy, not puke blue-the flash must have been mad at them.  

 Looks like a nice blank canvas for our resident artist, huh?  Anyone have any ideas for man-cave-ing it up?
