This is a fast, easy and creative way to create enough coat hooks for many guests that visit your man cave during the sports seasons. You can either go to your tool box or tool shed and find all of your old wrenches and use them. If they are rusty, make sure that you clean them and then you can either coat them some Rustoleum or shine them up and keep them as they are. Either way, put each one in a vice and bend it as much as you need to for it to be as near in half as possible. If this is too strenuous, take it to a local workshop and have it done. Then, find a space on the man cave wall, and use long screws to fasten them to the wall in a staggered formation.
With so many flea markets everywhere, vintage is all the rage, and what better way to store your alcohol than inside a vintage piece of cabinetry. It gives the feel of the “old days” when you watched the games with your dad on the old black and white, and it gives a whole lot of space to store your alcoholic beverages without creating actual cabinets. Just remove the “guts”, put a formed piece of wood on the inside bottom of the television to cover any holes, and insert your liquor. Then hang small lights, like mini Christmas ones, on the inside of the television above the bottles and create a warm glow.
This is one of the games that everyone knows from the show “The Price is Right.” You can make your own version to play either while you watch your sporting events, or as a separate tournament during the sports “off season.” The directions on how to make one and how to play are here.
Pinball is still the rage with the updated versions that have 3D graphics and so many different themes that it will be hard to decide which one to buy!

Here is a man cave DIY that you and the boys can do while you are watching the game it’s so easy! Take all the discarded cardboard beer holders and cut out the beer insignias on each one into a square that fits the same size as a square, coaster-sized piece of tile that you can buy at the local home improvement store. Then, brush some Mod Podge on the back of the cardboard and place it directly onto the front of the tile piece. Turn it over and let it dry for 20 minutes. Repeat this as many times as you have tile pieces and insignias. Then, repeat it again 2-3 more times for each tile piece until each one has at least 2-3 more layers of Mod Podge. When completely dry, affix felt adhesive strips to each back corner of every tile for non-skid use. Finally, put a top coat of clear acrylic finish on each one.
