Default Man Caves

A good friend gave me a "Man Cave" stencil so I made a couple of signs today for my 2 boys.

Felt good to be outside making sawdust and signs again!!

I haven't decided if I'm going to hang these with rusty old bailing wire or jute string. I drilled holes so I can attach whichever one I choose.

Here's an idea; I think I'll let the masses decide:

A) rusty old bailing wire

B) jute string

New wire with fake rust.

I should have included photos. Here's what fake rust looks like on a piece of chain and on MDF painted to look like metal.
