A guy who had nowhere to play video games turned the little closet under the stairs into an incredible playroom.
Mark Aspey revealed that there was only one place he could play on his console – the living room – which meant his wife couldn’t watch TV.
In an attempt to play games in peace and without disturbing his wife, Mark decided to reuse the closet under the stairs.
He created a man cave by placing a television and its game consoles on an old cabinet, and gave it a makeover with leftover carpet and wallpaper.
The whole project cost him just over £ 15 to complete, and he’s so thrilled with his game room that he joked that his wife would never see him again.
Mark shared his project on the Facebook group DIY on a UK budget, where he accumulated nearly 1,000 likes.
He said: “I’m sure there are a lot of people playing on consoles / PCs to play games and I found out that when I was playing in the living room Ms. had to sit down to watch me or go up the stairs.
“So we found a small solution, a game solution under the stairs.
“Lots of power and next to the router for a wired connection.
“The cabinet was one that we no longer use with the doors removed.
“1 x inexpensive wallpaper roll.
“Remains of carpet from a previous bedroom.
“£ 15 LED lights on Amazon.
“I just need a chair and get the job done, she’ll never see me again.”
Despite being a new playhouse, Mark admitted that the vacuum cleaner and other cleaning items will still be kept there.
Hundreds of people have commented on the game’s setup, praising the project.
One person said, “Add big bags of beans that I would live in myself. “
Another wrote: “I could do with one of them myself !!”
A third commented: “It’s a great idea, too bad you can’t fit a bigger TV in it. I think I would stay there for a while.
Someone else thought, “Sounds awesome. Perfect little playroom. I love orange lights lol.
As this person joked, “Harry Potter has an Xbox.”
And this woman is transforming the small closet in her one-bed apartment into a bedroom for her stepdaughter with great deals from B&M & The Range.
Meanwhile, this mum redeveloped her stairs into an incredible cascading wall mural after her 11-year-old ruined the carpet and it cost just £ 21.
Plus, this mom turned her “ugly” woodwork into a wall of family photos – but some criticize it for looking “common.”
