A lot of nice ideas, but they are all for naught without a nice 8-track player for some soothing sounds of the 70's. Definitely would pair well with the black light and posters.

A radiant heater works really well on the side of your body it's pointed at. Not so much the other side. In my drafty garage I close the door and use a 1500W portable fan heater. It blows the air it heats up around a bit, so you can create a little bit bigger zone that is warm. Until you open the door! Hence the move to the basement for winter bike projects.

Or - in your wood stove stack crumpled newsprint, two dry pine cones, three sticks of kindling, and two bigger (but not huge) sticks of firewood. Light it up, leave the door ajar for 15-20 minutes for max air flow up your flue. Throw in one or two more sticks after it settles in, close the door and adjust the vent. The pine cones help greatly to get the initial burn hot enough to stay lit and grow, so you don't have to d**k with it so much. There is also an awesome heat powered fan that sits on top of the stove. As the stove heats up the fan begins to blow, distributing the warm air above the stove into the rest of the space. Works like magic with our living room wood stove.

CO alarms are really cheap insurance. When I rebuilt our furnace a few years back I put one in the basement and one on the first floor above the furnace even though we've never had a problem with CO in 30 years. I also check the draft, CO2 and smoke with an old school chemical test set yearly, and have an electronic stack thermometer and an air fuel ratio meter on my furnace. It's probably one of the faster vintage diesel furnaces in Poulsbo, around 82% efficiency.

Good luck Sentinel!
Second this! I'm on there every day, it's addicting. Might even make a post of the progress of my own garage. Tons of cool stuff from the bargain shopper to guys with no monetary limitstions. Something for everyone!

If you are looking for a good floor covering I put down Behr Granite grip in my garage a few months. I park my full size truck on it daily after driving across a dirt/ gravel drive so plenty of stone carry over and it is holding up well.

I prefer the look of it to an epoxy flake floor and if you need to you can repair it later a lot easier.

Anytime and thanks, I also I would recommend using the concrete bonding primer as part of the prep routine if you go this route. It says you don't need it but I did and I think it helped. I laid this down at the very edge of the recommended temp application range and it's holding strong.

Once I find or take some pics I'll post em but hanging anything makes your garage look and feel bigger.
