While I’m dreaming up our next family vacation, or what photo I might want to hang in my new Mom Cave, my husband is making plans for a space of his own.
The garage is his domain. And he’s turned it from a regular two-car garage to a fitness oasis. And just when I think he’s done, he informs me of his plans to add more. But I don’t complain or even mind, because his man cave is open to all. And by all I mean our kids. Which is a huge bonus for me.
Recently he decided he wanted to give his space a little makeover. A couple years ago we went to Sears and got him some Craftsman products to help improve his space: A wet/dry vac to keep the floors clean; a storage cabinet to keep his equipment organized; a fan to cool the room when we were working out and a toolbox. He had a lot of the supplies he needed, but the look could use an upgrade. And if your husband is like mine and loves a good toolbox or DIY project, Sears is offering up to 50% off of Craftsman tools from now until 6/18.
He went and eyeballed some blue paint and had painters cover the three walls from white to cobalt blue.
When it was done? He HATED it. The blue wasn’t BYU blue. I liked it, but he held up posters and t-shirts to compare and show me it was off. For a week he researched official blues and came up with a whole color scheme and design idea.
We had the painters come back, re-do it with new colors, then installed a BYU border along the top. Now it’s perfect! … Or so I thought.
“I think I want a TV in there,” my husband said a couple days ago.
We have two TVs in the house and four tablets. I’m not exactly too keen on the idea of more screens. But he says it would be nice for the kids to have something to watch while he finishes his workouts–Giving me more alone time. He was definitely trying to make it sound appealing. And it was working!
With Father’s Day coming up I’m sorta in the “why not?” boat. Smart TVs are pretty inexpensive these days and it would really top off his Man Cave. So this week I’m heading back to Sears to pick one out with the kids, and maybe even a mini fridge if I’m feeling extra generous. In all honesty it’ll likely end up being stocked with water, snacks and juice boxes for the kids, because that’s the kind of dad he is. And exactly why he deserves it.
