Man Cave Ideas | DIY Furnishings For The Man By The Man

1. Denim Ottoman

This denim ottoman is great for hiding unwanted clutter in the man cave. Personally, I use it as a storage compartment for all my video game controllers, but I bet this is one of the ultimate man cave ideas you could use to store just about anything you want.

2. Wine Barrel Coffee Table

Got an empty wine barrel you have no idea what to do with? Turn it into a coffee table using this tutorial from Wm Walker Co.

Use a ratchet strap to help align the area where you’ll be cutting the barrel in half. Don’t forget to ensure the strap is straight.

3. Magnetic Bottle Opener

I like leaving this magnetic bottle opener on the door of my fridge. That way, I won’t even have to open drawers looking for a bottle opener anymore.

4. Dart Board Backing

Lauren loves wine like crazy, so she always has a ton of spare wine bottles and old corks laying around. One of the good things that have come out of this — apart from our usual wine nights — is this backing I’ve constructed for my dart board.

It doesn’t hurt that my wall has an added layer of protection against my darts. It makes one of the best sports, man cave ideas as well.

5. Crate Toilet Paper Holder

Who would’ve thought a wooden crate could be used as a toilet paper holder in your man cave? I surely didn’t!

In fact, it's one of the best rustic man cave ideas I've seen in a while.

Now, all I have to do is find an old license plate I can use to decorate the crate.

6. Jack Daniels Soap Dispenser

My buddies and I love a good bottle of Jack Daniels, which is why I’m pretty excited to be making this DIY. It’s so simple too.

Literally, all I have to do is just pour the liquid soap into the bottle and attach the head of the soap dispenser on top. That’s it!

You just made this one of the perfect man cave ideas for your kitchen or bar!

7. DIY Hooks From Wrenches

These DIY man cave hooks are made from spare wrenches I had in an old toolbox. The secret to getting them to bend is to simply heat up the tool a bit, but be cautious when you bend the ends, though.

Wrench Definition: A hand tool used for turning or tightening nuts and bolts. The tool is designed with a stout lever with a notch at one or both ends.

8. Wood Slice Serving Board

This wood slice serving board won’t cost you above $10, even if it looks fancy. Start by looking for dried and seasoned hardwood stumps, and if you can’t find any, head to your nearest craft store for a basswood slice.

9. Pallet Coffee Table

If you want to make a big coffee table for your man cave, you may need to increase the number of wood pallets on hand. This tutorial uses 3 pallets, but you can add or reduce these according to the size of the table you’d prefer.

10. Industrial Bookshelf

Give your books a manlier home by placing them in an industrial bookshelf. Begin by laying out how you want your shelf to look like on the wall.

To do this, attach strips of painters tape to help design or visualize your DIY man cave project.

11. Wall Pallet Arrow

My man cave is my sanctuary, so to help me remind myself to leave all problems at the door, I’ve put in a wood pallet arrow on the wall. It’s kind of my way of telling myself to leave all the bad vibes outside, and it serves as a unique man cave sign, too.

12. Penny Tiled Floor

A penny for your thoughts? How about some pennies on your man cave floor?

This DIY makes use of your unwanted pennies by placing strong glue and pressing your coins onto the floor. It's one of the most epic man cave ideas you can think of!

13. Pallet Bar

Always dreamed of having your own man cave bar? Well, now you can make one using some pallets, plus make your own bar stools or chairs too.

Don’t forget to add wooden boards behind the front frame of your bar. Doing so will ensure a sturdier furniture piece as well as make a flawless bar counter.

14. Beer Bottle Glasses

Put your empty beer bottles to good use by turning them into glasses. By the way, make sure to sand the edges once the glass is cut.

You’ll definitely need to make sure the mouth of the glass is smooth. Pouring your favorite beer in one of these glasses while watching your favorite movie on a flat-screen TV is the epitome of manly me-time.

15. Balancing Bookshelf

This installation piece looks super cool and functions as an awesome bookshelf. Just remember not to put too many books on one side, as it could make the whole shelf fall.

16. Suitcase Shelves

Want more shelf options? These suitcase shelves are definitely one of my man cave statement pieces.

By the way, I’ve found it’s best to take out the lining inside the suitcases before beginning the DIY because they can get a bit smelly.

17. Barrel Bed

I’ve got to say this barrel bed sure looks pretty inviting, indeed. If I had one, I reckon I’d have some of the most relaxing naps ever in just a small man cave.

18. Tire Sinks

Take your favorite room up a notch by installing these tire sinks in your bathroom. This would be perfect for a radiator springs man cave concept.

19. Nintendo Controller Coffee Table

Would you believe this Nintendo controller coffee table actually functions? I know!

I’m honestly really tempted to buy this online. It would take my gaming to a whole new level.

  1. Hi guys i jet thought i would make us aware to you we are based in uk and have a lot of man cave style furniture you might like to see. its bespoke made thanks for your time kind regards nick smith

    • Hi Donice,

      Regular pumps from hair shampoo or conditioner from the store ususally fit that type of bottle, we’ve gotten lucky and just ran to the local grocery and found some larger pumps. Beauty supply stores generally sell large pump dispensers as they need them for salons.


  2. That penny floor is certainly not inexpensive. With a penny taking up just under .5 square inches, a 10×10 ft room would have 14,400 square inches of space to cover with pennies. That means that it would require 28,800 pennies, or $288. Probably cheaper than some methods, but not “non-expensive” ($2.88/sqft just for the pennies).

  3. Hi there! Great roundup! And thanks so much for featuring my license plate crate! But could you PLEASE replace the pictures you have with the ones in the post WITH the watermarks?

    It’s really important to leave featured photos untouched so they can always be traced back to the owner.

    I have copyright info right on my blog face that asks this very thing.

    Please email me if you have any questions. Thank-you!

    • Sorry about that Donna, I’ll make that change right away. Thanks for providing the internet with all the awesome tutorials!! Can’t wait to see what other amazing crafts you come up with. 🙂

      Best Regards,

  4. You omit any mention of “filler or sealer”. What do you suggest ? Are the pennies glued down ?
    Does anyone have any experience with living with a “COPPER” floor ?


  1. […] Having a space that showcases the things you love is very trendy right now. A personalized retreat can still be used by the entire family. It can be a place to watch sports or movies, decorated with the family’s favourite sport’s team, or something else like a basement bar, games room, TV room, or billiards room. Check out these cool hobby/ entertainment cave ideas. […]
