First of all, Happy 31st birthday to the hubs! Can't believe it has been 10 years since our very first date!
I came up with a unique and fabulous birthday present, because let's face it...how much golf stuff can one man have?? I was getting so tired of the typical gift for every birthday and holiday. If you ask this man what he wants his standard response is "golf stuff." The "golf stuff" is why I am currently in this mess of an office!
Remember this? It gives me anxiety to even share this with you! I spend way too much time in this room to have it in such disarray.
I loved the board and batten in this room only I wanted mine a little bit higher
Love the gray walls and the overall clean feel of this room. Not a lot of clutter and feels like a place I could be in all day.
The shelves with the leaning pictures was a perfect concept for what I am envisioning.
My husband and I have an unhealthy love for the University of Utah, especially the football program. Do you consider crying when they have a bad game as "unhealthy?" Well, I do. It is such a passion of ours that it only seemed fitting to include it somewhere in our home. I really didn't want it to be a cheesy "sports room", which I think can walk a very fine line. So, my goal was to add sophistication to our love of football.
Before you see the "finished" pictures, please note that it actually isn't "finished." Major organization and accessorizing is still in place.
|We have a store near our home called the "Red Zone" that sells nothing but U of U gear. I thought it would be perfect to include a vinyl "U" on one of the walls.|
|Curtains were custom made using Ikea "last chance" fabric. "Last chance" means you are basically stealing it from them. I can handle $4.99 per yard!|
|We have collected so many news paper articles over the years that I wanted to use them in the room. This was an inexpensive way of decorating. Most of the frames I already had or bought from the dollar store.|
|This piece is an original art piece from an individual that lives here in Utah. This is actually his "real" birthday present. It really was my inspiration for the entire room. I kind of decorated around it if that makes any sense.|
|Like I said, I am still in the process of organizing. I used to have all of these boxes in the closet, but thought they were too pretty to not be included in the room. And it helps that they match perfectly!|
|Our diplomas hang nicely above the closet. They used to be hung behind the dreadful treadmill and now they are easily seen. All of that hard work should be displayed right?|
