My Son Lives in the Basement…

Yes, my son does live in our basementActually it’s his apartment…

He pays us rent…

and I could not have a better tenant!…

He had just cleaned and rearranged some items… so I asked if I could take a few photos…

and not believing my ears, “He said YES!”…

His decor is more of a “man cave”… done by his self!

Sports dominates the areas… and some movie collectibles…

This is his home… so it is up to him to keep it clean… and he does better than me!…

I have never went down there that it is not neat as a pin!...

As you head down the steps… you immediately get a taste of the theme he has used…

Baseball, football and some other sports thrown in a little…

I believe his Grandfather had some influence…

we have a newspaper article of him striking out Babe Ruth when he was just a teen…

As you make your way down… his neatly displayed collectibles of photos, baseball bats, glasses, figurines, etc…

catch your eye immediately!…

Even the wallpaper borders are sports related…

from clocks… to bobble heads… to puzzles… to pictures…

There are figurines… plates… mugs…

and even a little bit of bowling is displayed…

These small bats are mostly made at the Louisville Slugger Field Baseball Factory here in Louisville…

replicas signed with baseball great’s names!

and a collection of different baseballs hold some autographs…

He has made a door from a poster frame for this chest… that holds a few of his model cars…

The frame is attached by screw hinges and makes quite a unique door…

I loved this idea!…

As you can see… everything is quite organized… even the eating area…

Done all by him!

As you turn the corner to the right…

you’ll find his living room…

His baseball and other collectible cards are organized in binders…

and a few of his favorite posters take residence here!…

Above the fireplace are glasses… some displayed on a shelf made by his Grandfather…

Bigger baseball bats are here on a rack… and in a decorative can like the posters…

The room is comfortable and put together nicely…

I had painted this Movie Theme door a few years back…

and it is where you enter the bedroom/movie area…

You will find him at his desk many days organizing… redoing some item he has located on our Thrift Store jaunts

We both love finding those unique treasures!

Selling on EBAY… means getting items photographed, written/uploaded on computer, priced and then when sold… shipped!

If I’m ever having the desire to watch a movie… they are here at my fingertips…

although… since they are all organized in categories I usually just ask…

I don’t think I have ever visited that the bed is not made…

but, sometimes occupied by our cats who love to visit!…

cleanest, most tidy place to sleep… and I think they have found it!
