Looking for ideas to decorate my man cave...was wondering if you guys had some ideas for what I could do with my sheds I found over the past years...don't have a ton, but enough...any pics would be great, and it doesn't just have to be pics of sheds...any neat ideas for a hunting themed "man cave"

If you have cabinets with doors or drawers, use smaller ones for pulls. Use them so the curved part is away from the drawer or door and screw them with 2 screws.

I have a ranch style home and this is my entrance to my mancave!



One of the problems I was having with designing mine was the duct work for my central air and oil hot air system. This is how I got around that.



At the far right of the above picture you can see how it is even with the drop ceiling. I was actually quit pleased with how it came out!



























Good luck with yours and post some pics when your done! Sorry for the pic overload!

Good work on the duct work covers!

I just cant cut up or drill holes in any antlers that I find, big or small.I think they look great as they are.

Maybe make some shelves or some other ways to display them.

Big 28 hunter I love your man cave. I would love to do my basement like that but money is tight. We just built our home about 3 1/2 years ago so it will be awhile before I can do something like that. I thought I was a hunting machine but I see you have me beat. I like the way it is decorated. It is not overkill and my wife would not have a problem with the way you did your man cave. Thanks for sharing such nice pictures!

Here are some shelves that I made with some sheds that I had.......I have made several sets of these.....they are super easy to make, and they look pretty sweet.....





I have also used tines, and antlers as hooks on coat trees, and coat racks.......



I cant really help on the mancave thing as my entire house is basically decorated in the style of what some people would call mancave........the wife likes the stuff as much as I do, so I guess I lucked out there.....

Appreciate the kind comments guys! Thank you! It took me 18 years to get it done. Went through the big "D" shortly after the house was built. Which is why it took so long. Also raising three girls by myself was my number one priority! One mistake I made was putting drywall on the one side and T1-11 on the other. I like the T-1-11 much better!
