The kids running around from their bedroom, through the dining room, jumping over furniture in the living room just to get to the refrigerator. You know that when Pieone child does something the next one does it too.

Seclude Yourself and Love It!

You began to think. What would I need for my Man Cave? You walk around theĀ house looking for things to bring into your man cave. Your first thought is to bring your favorite recliner and television. You think to yourself if that is all I have I will be fine too. But, your mind races on and you think “how can I be in my man cave without a mini fridge for my drinks.

Well, with drinks a table will be needed. You found the perfect dual pool table that doubles as a space table and a pool table in one. Humm, that is something I can make myself.

What else can I make myself? A Magazine caddy, bar stools, oh – gotta have the “Enter at Your Own Risk” sign. Maybe, I can add a chest set to the table that I am about to make. A murphy bar, that is a hidden bar that is not visible to the naked eye. I like it. Your permanent smile changes to a mischievous grin as your thought start to come together.

  • “Maybe, you and I can share the room. You have half and I will have the other half”
