Look Guys.... The dreaded "interior designer" is invading the last refuge of men in their own home.

(IMG:http://www.914club.com/bbs2/style_emoticons/default/ar15.gif) Women Invade the Garage!

We have been run out of the family room, the living room, the dining room, and the bedroom by the "interior designer". Now they want to invade the garage. Think about it.. no beer fridge, or welders! Just cheery paint, and (shudder) ceiling fans! How are we going to put in a lift if the ceiling fan is in the way of the car going up?

This is happening to me... and it could happen to you!!

Sometimes my wife will come out and talk to me if I am working in the garage, but she knows not to invade "my space". The rest of the house is pretty much hers to decorate, the garage is my little corner of the world. :D

My wife sent me the link! I am scared that she is going to try to "decorate" the garage. She spend her weekends watchin the home improvment shows like "design on a dime" and "devine design". I hide in the garage to keep from having to listen to the decorating "gurus" fix up someone's bedroom. I want a garage, not a place where I have to take my shoes off before I can walk on the floor.

I haven't met your wife Clay, but after seeing her daily driver and hearing about how she drives at AX....I think your safe.

Me on the other hand....

I built my wife her own little corner work area in our gararge. Has a workbench and a bunch of shelves so she can do her potting of plants and some craft stuff that she can't do in the house. She has decorated it to match her tastes but has left the rest of the garage to me (so far).

Just in time for Halloween!

Here's my favorites.

"Painting each shelf back a rainbow of interesting colors produces a whimsical backdrop for a garage with completely white wall coverings."
(Whimsical?)

"For more of an understated appearance select a monochromatic garage color scheme..."
(what could be more understated and monochromatic than oil on a bare concrete floor?)

"...consider implementing a cheerful palette of uplifting primary colors."
(gag)

"Hand-painted freeform border designs"
(Shouldn't pinstriping be on the car, not the walls?)

Hehe, the trick to avoinding a decorating invasion is to decorate it yourself (IMG:http://www.914club.com/bbs2/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif) Mine has reproduction 50's tin automotive signs and numerous car parts hanging on the wall.

Not all houses are owned by married couples ya know... there are women out there who own houses (not me, but I know they are out there) (IMG:http://www.914club.com/bbs2/style_emoticons/default/lol2.gif)

Women willing to do this stuff clearly ran out of things to decorate inside the house (IMG:http://www.914club.com/bbs2/style_emoticons/default/lol.gif)

Noooooooooo :o

I had to put my foot down when the Wife tried to put curtains in the garage. I told her if she did that I would put the 914 engine in the hall.... she didn't think that was funny. :D (we need a dodging-the-frying pan smiley)

Someone has a very wrong picture of what a garage is. Let's hope this doesn't go any further than an magazine article written by an obviously misguided author.

Like so much intrusion on all aspects of our lives with advertisements, cookies and the sort, the story from the article was probably another disguised spam of corporation manufactured good taste trying to sell their products. In this article it was paint.
I have seen photos of your home and garage Clay and felt the warmth, walking thru the open cyber doors into the vast space of your garage. Seeing the products of both your 914 efforts 1st hand, those you and your wife enjoy together is as close as my own garage. Thanks.
I seriously doubt that a wife as nice as yours would tred in your 914 space without considering what is best for you as well as her own interests. Just like all wifes, much like my own, Red, they would like to see some improvements in the appearance of all our necessary 914 parts and tools laying all around and maybe get some air circulating to get rid of oily and rusty odors. :-)

HAHAHAHA......... No wife..... no worries about the Garage problem.

Yea... I've got a shitload of clothes on my bedroom floor that my girlfriend left there, but they are easily removeable..... so is she.

My Garage floor is covered in tools, grease, oil, and numerous other manly things. The walls?? Covered in titties... just the way I like it.

I do remember when I was married though. I had no garage, so the Olds 455 I was rebuilding sat on an engine stand..... in my KITCHEN. My ex-wife covered it with an old tablecloth and used it as a plantstand when I wasn't working on it.

Be a man...... stand up for your rights to be dirty!!! (IMG:http://www.914club.com/bbs2/style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

She's probably just trying to freak you out.

Although there IS something nice about brightening up a dingy garage with cheerful colors... (IMG:http://www.914club.com/bbs2/style_emoticons/default/idea.gif)

I'm KIDDING, I swear!
