While trying to find a spot for something in our junk....I mean storage room I came across this that a friend of mine made me when I had my red '67 probably in 1983, he's a carpet installer and still use him and are still friends. I texted him to see if he'd make me a teal one....think he's ghosting me 馃槈 Anybody have any cool garage art 馃憤

Since I don't have a garage, but I do have a well pump house that is big enough to house my tools and compressor, I have an "emblem board" on one of my swing doors. Some are off of cars I owned and junked/sold and others are from junk yards I used to go to.

Being single guy, the inside of my man-cave has assorted wall/shelf art throughout. LOL

Jared,
The "happy wife - happy life" is one side of the coin. When I hear that I tell them, "happy man, now that's the plan". Gotta keep things on an even keel!

Both sides balance here my friend. I think we've done a good job thus far keeping it level. I have a to do list that is a combination of things for the house, things for the wife, things for the kids, and things for me. The house and kids things come first followed by everything else. I limit to one or two bigger home improvement projects a year and make sure the path is clear when I need time for hobby stuff. This year the big projects were painting our bed room and rebuilding a collapsed retaining wall. Kids things were driving my youngest to all sorts of marching band events and helping the older two with their rolling death traps. One of their cars really kicked my butt in the early summer. I picked it up really cheep because it was mechanically totaled and spend a bit of my spare time working on it. The wife's stuff was a lot of small things this year and mine was building and installing an engine in the Pontiac and prepping, then destroying, a junker class stock car. The engine install and start up ate up about a months worth of free time. Busy year but my projects ate up more of my time than hers did this year.

This sounds like I went off topic here but I didn't (yet). With all these other things going on, my plans for the garage have been on hold. I plan to paint in there and install Race Deck flooring since the concrete has a very old epoxy coating and is cracked to boot. I'd like to re-hang and organize the stuff that I have in there and add what I think would fit in.

I was watching a tv show last night on Britbox, and a guy had an old scalextric ( slot cars) track on the wall, thinking of doing something similar on back wall of garage, maybe even make it drop down and be useable!! Something like this鈥

Baaad, That carpet is too cool! I can see that in the trunk for shows.

Army, that letter is going to make a fantastic sign...I look forward to seeing the whole thing. Really good 3D effect on the cam!

Here's a few things that one might consider "art" in my shop...(76 C10 front clip)...

A loooong time ago, when my boys were little, I mounted an HO train layout for them onto a 4x8 sheet of plywood and hung it on a wall in their shared room. It was hinged at the bottom so that when they weren't using it, the whole thing could be folded up vertically against the wall. I made a frame out of 1x4's mounted on edge and attached permanently to the wall, such that when the layout was "up" the edges fit just inside the frame so that the whole thing looked sort of like a giant 4x8 "box" that stuck out 4" from the wall surface. On the face (the underside of the board when it was down) I made another picture-frame looking pattern out of 1x4's. The two end pieces were hinged at the top, such that when it was "down" they swung down and made legs to support the layout.

I had to get it down and put it back up for them because it was too heavy and too tall for them to deal with, but the whole thing worked out pretty great.

We never did anything with the side that showed to the room when it was up, but we could have turned that into a chalk board, white board, cork board, hung pictures on it, etc.
