We’re wrapping up the game room décor now. This room is located at the top of the stairs next to the built-in desk. It has sat empty for a year until our neighbors decided to move.
When they moved, they needed to get sell a ping pong table. Guess who bought it?! They gave us a great deal on it. So, that started the vision for the game room.
And, here is where we are with it.
We have the ping pong table (in a nice dark blue color), an awesome sign made from vintage letters by the lovely Wendi at Thelma and Louize, chevron curtains, an armoire that I painted white and that we could barely get upstairs even with help, a pub table that I got on Craigslist also and painted white, two bar stools that we painted blue, a chalk board that isn’t yet hung, and an old barn light made by an awesome local man who owns a shop called Oodles.
Here is the light and chalkboard vignette closer up. The pub table can be pulled out and used as a game table. We have extra bar stools in the next room (media room). It’s 3 feet by 3 feet and 42 inches tall.
I love how the light gives the room a touch of industrial and works well when paired with the vintage letters.
And, the letters?! They are so fun. Right now, you see the armoire first when you come up the stairs. We did it that way due to the cable outlet being over there should we ever want to add a television. But, we may flip it in the end. We’ll see.
The letters are possibly my favorite part. Wendi did such a good job on them. They are such a large statement piece of art.
As for the armoire, it’s probably going to be sold with the house. It’s not going anywhere. It was super heavy. We bought it on Craigslist and the sweet couple we got it from even helped us move it in. And, boy, that was very difficult. It’s extremely heavy.
I’m a little unsure about the chevron curtains. I like them, but with the craft room/ my office being nearby and having a black and white chevron rug, it kind of feels too repetitive. I’m contemplating selling them and getting them made in a different fabric. I do like the color, though. The curtains are from an etsy shop called Sew Panache.
We want to keep it pretty simple and uncluttered. The armoire houses board games and the xbox which we never really use.
We may add to the art over the table in time.
But, this is where we are at for now and we’re loving it! It’s a fun, vibrant space. I love how it’s all from local artists, Craigslist, etsy and our neighbor!
