Tom's Room Makeover: Transforming the Garage into a Music Room & Hangout

Tom’s Room Makeover: Transforming the Garage into a Music Room & Hangout

We have this pretty cool space in our garage. Fortunately it’s up in the rafters so it doesn’t take up any square footage (floor space) in the garage.

When we moved in, the space was set up like a workshop. It had a big oversized work bench and shop lighting.

Although functional (electricity, heat, running water), it wasn’t aesthetically pleasing… not a place you’d really want to hang out in.

I have my office in the house, but there was no room for my husband to have his own space.

This space was PERFECT!

….just needed a little TLC.

What we did:

  • Took out the workbench,
  • Patched up the ceiling and walls,
  • Painted ceiling and walls,
  • Installed new flooring,
  • Added baseboard,
  • Switched out the lighting,
  • Installed new sink, and
  • Decorated.

Although I’d like to add a few more decorations, this space is pretty good as-is (Tom is happy with it).

He calls it his man-cave, but it actually does function as a pretty well Music / Study space.

We added some custom features, like this pallet shelf over his desk.

And personalized the space with memories (of the 2 cutest kids ever).

With a little bit of elbow grease, paint, flooring, and decor he’s got a pretty neat getaway space.

Here’s the before and after again…
