Man Cave – Yankees and Wine
We recently had the pleasure of converting a closet into a wine cellar in New Jersey. The customer then asked if we could paint a mural in the arch of the wine cellar, which led to a conversation about the homeowners basement.
He asked if we could turn the basement into a real “man cave” so we discussed a general theme (New York Yankees with a wine tasting area), but other than that we had great flexibility. Once the demo was complete we decided on a raised panel theme with antique paint finish (to make the room look as if it had been there a long time) .
We also decided on walnut wine racks and a distressed plaster wall finish. We then added a wine barrel tasting table with bar style leather chairs to match the custom pool table. We then arranged some of the owners NY Yankee photos and added a few of our own.
We had our friend Paul O’Neill sign a personal note to the homeowners (BIG fans) and the NY Yankee pool table light. The television was hung on the wall with 2 Yankee photos left and right as well as a walnut cabinet to hide the components. The basement was a tremendous success as the homeowners loved it and so did we.
Some day we may even do their whole first floor and kitchen! Hmmmm…stay tuned for more.
