One of my earliest and best shop memories is hanging out with my grandpa in his shop. I remembered he used to have the 40’s style pin-ups on the wall, and I thought it would be a great idea to get some for my shop. I was looking at a few on Amazon, and the wife chastised me for looking at ‘pornography’.
It probably didn’t help that I got a good laugh at that. ;)

If she thinks 40’s pinups are pornography, it’s good she didn’t catch you with the real thing! :-)

Would pin-ups of her be acceptable? That would be my solution (with my own wife).

Yeah, I got a little grief from the lady when I hung up a Miller Ice Lite beer sign with a young thing in a skirt with her legs spread a bit. Yup jealous, for sure…

On the back wall in this image. BTW, it is still out there in my “man-shop” LOL!

My wife was a bit surprised when I came home with this.

Even better, get the most scandalous posters you can stand and then cut and paste a photo your wife’s head on them. When she tells you take her head off of them, you’ll be able to put anything you want on the wall. You’ll always be able to say “well I wanted pictures of you dear, but you said I couldn’t have them”.

Have your say...
