College Themed Room?

Postby MommyKristy » Sat Dec 29, 2007 2:57 pm

Has anyone else done a college/football themed room for a little boy? We want to do a UGA room for our little boy, but I don't want it to be over the top. Any suggestions or pics would be great!! Thanks.

We're actually working on putting together a sports-theme nursery ourselves. My DH actually works for the Columbus Blue Jackets NHL team, so we wanted to do something along those lines.

It is now a blend of hockey and baseball items, since Ryne is named after Ryne Sandberg, a Hall-of-Fame second baseman for the Chicago Cubs. Of course, my DH gave him his name!

We painted the walls white with red and navy blue horizontal stripes that expand the entire room. We went with black furniture. We’re now working on decorating the room with hockey and baseball memorabilia.

If you want to see some pictures, click on the following link to the March forum nurseries thread (our nursery is the first one in the thread):

Hope this helps give you a little inspiration!

Thanks. We decided on painting only two of the walls that are opposite of each other red. When you walk into the room they will be to the left and right of you so that it doen't hit you in the face when you walk in.

Very smart! You will have to take some pictures and post them for us to see! You did know that Glidden makes licensed team colors? You can get them at Home Depot.

Yes I did know that, but they are quite a bit more expensive than the regular colors I think. Anyway, we are really close to Athens (Where UGA is) and so I just went to Lowe's (which is a lot closer) and told them I wanted Georgia red and they did it for me. I've got pictures of the paint already!!
Here's one wall, this one would be to the right when you walk in:

Here's the other, this one would be to the left:

WOW! I really like the contrasting white walls with the red - still makes the room look very big! I can't wait to see more! :)
