Default Garage storage/art/collections and tips and tricks

Actual vehicle projects need not apply. Those belong in the first place.

Now that I have my own "shop" I wanna decorate it so I'm thinking old metal tonka toys and tractors. Basically the toys of my youth. Besides the normal TV/radio/fridge/nudie girl posters what's y'all got?

Pointless? Yes. Cool? Yes, IMO.

Also this be a good place to post up other garage tips and tricks.

Decorate it with tools that you use.....actually use.
Decorating your garage should be very last on your list of a new home owner.
Decorating the garage is done when everything else is squared away.....this includes starting new projects

Know how I know you're gay?

Other than the hoard, I had all my old ORV sticker stuck to the beer fridge- a 1950's vintage Coldspot. (RIP)

I have almost no free wall space left in my garage after installing all the various shelving, cabinets, benches, toolboxes, and equipment. I had a bunch of beer banners I gave Scott cuz I had nowhere to put them. All I have for wall art now is a picture of a badass Cuda, some hot Monster chicks, and a hot scantily clad picture of my wife. No, I'm not posting it for you fuckers

I like metal signs. I have some road, jeep, and beer ones. I also like stickers, I have my fridge covered with them. Also I collect license plates.

I took down all the beer banners after I hung an old 19" tv from the rafters to watch sports while wrenching. And now I don't even watch sports anymore.

I have metal signs and license plates off of previous vehicles hung up. Besides that, it's shelving and other crap to help organize/store stuff.

I have an old ass signed poster of mike lorocco from red bud from 2000? and a few old license plates. Garage art is things you acquire over time with sentimental value. Anything else is gayish imo.

This. I have some action figures, and stuffed animals, and a couple toy cars on the shelf that I have found in vehicles, left from the previous owners.
