Simpatico: Golf Room, Part II


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

Golf Room, Part II

Here are a few more things I have made for my golf guest room.

I made a french memo board from the same material I used in the rest of the room. I criss-crossed brown grosgrain ribbon and used push pins covered with golf scrapbooking buttons. Now we have a place to put all of our scorecards!! :) I included a few from last year as this year has not been conducive to playing golf!

Here is the golf subway art I made a few weeks ago. My colors shifted a wee bit from the original design, but that is ok as it still feels a part of the room through the chocolate brown frame and neutral matting.

I have to admit this was a lot of fun creating. Trying to find the right words, colors, position of the verbiage, and font just made this little geeky girl's day. I love photoshop and could spend a whole day just sorting thru different means to make your pictures look different and better!

Here is a shelf that had been in Reed's baby room, given to me by a great friend Melissa. I had it stuck away thinking I would use it again, and sure enough it was just what this room was calling for.

It was painted white, and I didn't wish to paint it brown as well, so I used a glaze to give it a nice antique look. I think it turned out ok... It was my first try at antiquing anything, so forgive my faux pas!

I picked up this golf art at Hobby Lobby for a steal. I was so happy when I saw the sale!!

Behind the art I created a moss covered foam core frame to give the area a bit of depth. Reed told me it looked like a golf hole. It was not my intention, but that is rather cool! :)

I am going to divorce my glue gun after this project. You should see the blister I have on my thumb as a result of it 'accidentally' leaking hot glue on me.

To the other side of the shelf is a frame painted the same chocolate brown with a picture saying "Today's Score". I have a black dry erase marker purchased to keep here so we can enter our score for the day.

It also says "A bad day golfing is beter than a good day working." Isn't that the truth?

The small golf ball container is holding our 'golf money'. Each week we put aside some money to play or go to the driving range to hit some balls.
