Wooden crate staircase an ideal entrance to your man cave

By John Kirchner June 13, 2011

The “man cave” has become the commonly accepted term for a living space reserved for all things masculine. There’s no fighting it — boys love their toys. But a man cave can be about more than massive high-definition televisions, plush leather furniture and pool tables.

Check out this wooden crate inspired staircase from Funky Junk Interiors. It features several classic logos painted on and made to look distressed, blending the world of antiques with the old body shop vibe. The staircase provides an excellent transition to a man cave tucked away in the basement (as they so often are).

This design doesn’t require hunting down actual vintage stamped crates and signboards. Rather, one can use stencils and latex paint, then finish with a stain and varnish to give the logos some character.  Even better, a design like this looks even more authentic after some general wear.
