The Man Cave - aka Bedroom 3 Renovation

Bedroom 3 was to be my husband’s room, or rather, the “Man Cave”.

He didn't have full design control but was much more involved in the paint scheme than on any of the other rooms.  Magnolia and light blue were agreed by all parties.

Whatever colour it ended up, it had to be better than the shocking magenta that filled the room when we got the keys.  You’d never guess this had been a little girls room...

The bed was a Gumtree find for £30, and the mattress an unused freebie on Freecycle.  The curtain pole was already there (albeit with paint sloshed all over it – so we smartened that up a bit), and the curtains were existing ones we had from Ikea.

The lamp was my desk lamp at university (again Ikea), and the frame and print were a room warming gift to my husband. The frame we already had from my uni days (again Ikea, can’t get enough of Ikea!) and the print is from Paperchase.

The big thing in this room for my husband was the bike hanging system.  This was the item which he researched and purchased and was his final touch to the room.  This solution saves all the floor space it would otherwise take up.

It’s made by Cycloc and costs in the region of £50 – the most expensive thing in the room (apart from the bike!).

What do you think?
