Before & After: Media Room (a.k.a. The Man Cave)

5 Sep

It wasn’t much to look at. Just a perfectly square room with white walls and nothing to speak of but a ceiling fan. At least, that’s what I saw. But from the moment he stepped foot in the media room, Husband was having visions of what would become his future Man Cave.

His obvious choice for decor was paying homage to our alma mater, Texas A&M University. We chose to go with a two-tone, maroon and charcoal color scheme, and Husband impressively cut, painted and hung chair railing around the perimeter of the room. Just to make sure our school spirit could not be mistaken, we finished of the room with a collection of memoribilia.

The result is a cozy room that provides a fun, casual atmosphere whether we’re having a movie night or entertaining friends for the big game. As always, I tried to recycle many of the accent pieces from our apartment, and I got creative by using some of our favorite collectibles from our college years. The last piece (which will be in place soon) is a flag we are going to have framed and placed over the couch on the back wall. Have you tried a sports- or school-themed room in your home? We’d love to see pics! Here are ours:
