New(ish) man cave.

Hello all,

A few months back the wife wanted my son to have a larger room so I was kicked out of the guest room into a smaller room. The bribe was it would be re decorated (by us) very cheaply for about £100 all in.
Well after a few more months later I still hadn't settled in and it didn't feel right, I worked out that I couldn't find my paints easily in the current location so something was needed to be done.
I had seen a few ideas on the net but they were all out of reach of my limited budget. Then I had a flash of inspiration or a few beers one or the other. I think I saw something on line that I thought I could knock that up for a fraction of the price. It must have been beer because I am crap at DIY and other tools (ask the good lady).Any way here is the outcome,
A quick trip to B & Q and I walked out with some baton, some thin strips of wood, No nails glue a shelf and a saw.

I got the bloke at B & Q to cut the shelf on their saw, for the frame, but everything else was cut, glued and screwed by my own fair hand, and a little helping  hand to hold the shelves from the good lady Mrs West.

This one is just one long version of the two tier ones.

Please beware that normal service has resumed and it looks like it has been hit by and air strike.

A small sample of the stash. it still needs the lighting sorting out but all in all a nice place to work.
Well I have no excuse for not picking up the hairy sticks and getting them wet now, just need somewhere to put them when they are finished!

Cheers for looking, any comments or tips more than welcome.

Rich.
