Decorating your garage - Page 2

post #16 of 25
The garage is definitely part of the house. If I have a garage, I prefer not to put the cars there. I put couches, lights, TVs, music instruments, record players, etc. there, because that's where all the pot smoking occurs and most parties are conducted.

Garages are for cars (and bikes and tools and torture devices, wait I’ve said too much…) and should not be filled with furniture, or TV’s or other such misc. household items. In fact, when it comes time to decorate my garage, I’m making it an homage to whatever car I own at the time. If I own a Porsche for example, I’m decorating the walls with posters of classic races, like the Carrera Pan-America, and pictures of models from bygone areas like the 959 and the 550. Although I could see if you smoke pot how the garage would be a good place to do it… Jon.

The best way to do that, Brian, is to build a house, and where the garage is, tell them to put in a basement, finish the interior, and put in triple-pane sliders in where the garage doors go. ~ Huntsman

I have considered this too but there is no air conditioning there. Also, the primary appeal of partying in the garage, the ease of cleaning and the decreased likelihood of damaging something vaulable, to me is akin to putting plastic over one's sofas.

I have four paintings in my garage:

A study of a dwarf from a painting by Velasquez.

A picture of the moon and black spray paint.

A small cartoon of a toy figure with a toppled glass of milk.

A copy of a nude by Prudhonne.

4 motorcycles, 2 scooters, 1 car, 7 bicycles, tools, more tools, posters on all the walls, oil all over the floor (Brit bikes, what can I do?). My garage is a disaster...just the way I like it.
