Default Purdue Themed Mancave

I have finally (Well 99%) finished my mancave basement. I am a Purdue Alumni and big fan, and have built my cave around a Purdue sports bar theme. I still have to hang some Jerseys and various other Purdue artifacts.

It was a fun but long project, im ready for it to be completed.








Bar Build

The front of the bar is the Original Basketball floor from Mackey Arena at Purdue








Original Bleacher From Mackey Arena, turned it into my liquor shelf






2 - 26" samsungs and 1 - 60" Samsung (Plasma 8000 series)
I use the Harmony 900 remote for controlling everything.

Well done sir. :applause:

I particularly love the use of wood/bleachers as well as that TV setup.

Yeah, I think the TV and the bench setup is most bad ass.
I'm not a Purdue fan, but I think you did an outstanding job in bringing it all together and not making it cheese ball / hacked together.
Is that is all DIY, it's well done. Serious looks like a professional came in start to finish, design, construction, etc.

Agree with Quads. I love how you incorporated the floor and bleacher. And you got the TV setup just in time for March Madness. The basement looks great.

Outstanding. Very nice tribute without corn-balling it.

Glenn Robinson would be proud to watch the tournament in your basement.

BTW, what did you do with that pole right in front of the bar?

Any of these ideas?

Great job especially with the "Play Hard.." on the stairs on the way down! However you need a LOT more stuff! I would ship you some of mine if I wanted to part with it! But an easy thing to do is to figure out how to use what you have. For example I have over a dozen Purdue baseball hats and I hung them up around the top of my room. Same applies to tshirts...either mount some of your favs on boards or get creative. Bottom line is you need more stuff in there and I am sure you have it! BTFU!

Thanks Quads, I did everything outside of hanging drywall. Designing it was my favorite part. It's amazing too how fun carpentry is with the right tools.
