Simpatico: Golf Art for Guest Room


Just the life and times of a silly girl, her dachshunds and all things Southern!

Golf Art for Guest Room

I am in the process of doing over my guest room. I guess it isn't doing over as much as actually making it a room instead of a room with a door shut when people come over! I decided to go with a golf theme as golf is a very important part of our lives!

I have been gathering some frames while goodwilling to refab into something to place on the walls. Currently there is nothing... I found a nice empty frame with a beige mat for a 15 x 7 print. I made some subway art for it using golf terms.

The room is going to be navy, tan and rust. I have a navy comforter and tan sheets for the room already. I am trying to find some plaid fabric of those three colors to make some pillows, a window treatment and cover a chair. I haven't found anything, but of course I have been looking exactly 1 day! :)

I also found a really nice frame with a 6x4 space, a bulletin board and 2 pewter hooks. It was brand new!! It had the original price tag, was in perfect condition and even had the box around it! I was able to purchase it for $1.50!!

I thought this would be perfect to put score cards and hang golf gloves and hats. I made this picture to put in the top. As there is glass in the frame I can use a dry erase marker to put the score. Hopefully it will be below 85!

I plan to get them all professionally printed at Kinkos so they have a real nice look, but at a fraction of the price of real artwork.

All the frames will be painted with the same black paint to give it consistency, even if the frames are a different look.

I still have to purchase more frames and make more artwork. But as time and money are a bit tight right now, I believe I will stick these two into their frames and then look for more as time and money permits.

After I finish the room I will post some pictures! :)
