What home would be complete without the man cave? A phenomenon that’s as fun as it is practical, a man cave is a place where a man can go to be a man. There are no poufs in this room. No candle arrangements. And no chic–not even shabby chic. Here, we celebrate what matters in life: beer, sports, and…well, that’s pretty much it.
So what kind of stuff is a man cave made of? From a frosty beverage bar to your very own super-sized kegerator, we’ve curated five awesome DIYs so you can get your man cave going. Take a look, and let us know what you tried!
