Man transforms cupboard under the stairs into Elden Ring haven

A tiny cupboard got a man cave makeover and it’s actually kind of perfect. 

TikToker @chloe_97xo and her boyfriend have a home with a small cupboard under the stairs. It was so cramped and neglected it was the kind of cupboard you might imagine Harry Potter once lived in. But with some paint and thoughtful alterations, her boyfriend transformed the cramped space into a fully functional man cave.

“My bf decided to turn our under stairs cupboard into his new man cave. Can’t believe the difference,” the caption read. 

The cupboard was small and unassuming. It literally wasn’t tall enough for him, or any adult, to stand inside of. Luckily, you don’t have to be standing to play Elden Ring

He painted the walls green, installed blue string lights and put up shelves. Finally, he added in his computer station and gaming chair. It’s not just a sweet setup, it’s a vibe. 

The man cave makeover has so far racked up 2.6 million views on TikTok

“Imagine having family or friends over and they go ‘so where’s your boyfriend?’ ‘Oh he’s just in the cupboard under the stairs,’” a user joked.

“When I say this is legit my dream to have a spot under the stairs,” another said

“Elden Ring you’re gonna be hearing screaming all night long from the staircase lol,” someone commented

“Making what he has work! Kudos brotha!” a person added

“You do with what you got. Absolutely love it,” a TikToker replied.
