Game Room Do-Over


So when we bought our house last December the Game Room was a floral explosion.   
I knew that we could not live with that.
 So we had painted the room an off white color.  The shelves were from the basement and the art room in the old house.   One was Olive Green and the others where a light green.   I really thought I had a picture but apparently not.   It was so boring. 
I decided that I wanted to put this picture my husband brought home from a trip to Haiti.   It is the focal picture for the room.  For color flow from the TV room and the hall we decided on the yellow bandana for the color of the room. 


 My brother had some leftover Bead board that he gave us.   I hadn't never used a jigsaw before this project but it didn't take long for me get pretty good at it.  My hubby was very impressed that I cut the outlet holes out myself and even replaced the outlets that were there.  
 The shelves all got fresh coats of paint.   The two pictures in this photo are done 
by my daughter in High School.   I think they are just fun.
 The vinyl art I made using Sure Cuts A lot.   The saying is digital word art from Bethany's Elegant Word Art that I had.  I used Inkscape to convert it to an SVG file. 
I finally got the room all put back together today.  I am loving the new look.   I would hope that a daughter of a dear friend would now longer call the room dim.  :)
