What makes an awesome room? How do I get a room the way I want it? Everybody asks these questions. I want to answer them and I want to show you how to get a room like mine. First I want to give a little history behind my room before I get into that. I will give
- A background of why my room is the way it is
- The history of my favorite Jersey
- My Brett Favre Signed Cheese Head
After I am done with that I will give you some steps on how to get that perfect room you have always wanted.
Step 1: A Small History
I am a huge fan and have been since I was little. I grew up with a grandfather that loved the Green Bay Packers and that is the main reason I am such a fan. I wanted my room to resemble how much of a Packers fan I am while still maintaining my personality. I never had a room like this when I was little, and when I moved into this room I wanted it to be great. These kind of rooms just do not happen in a year. It has taken me years to get the room the way I want it and it is still not perfect, but it is getting there.
Step 2: What Is My Favorite Jersey?
Like any true fan I have A LOT of jerseys. I easily have 10 jerseys. Which one is my favorite? Well my favorite is the one I never use. It is the one that is framed. One asks, Why is a jersey in that condition placed in such a nice frame? Well it actually has a lot of meaning to me. For one it was my first jersey I ever had. It is a Brett Favre STARTER BRAND jersey. Me and my found it at a yard sale when I was really young. First through 5th grade I used that jersey during my football practices. That is why it is so worn. When I was in 6th grade I thought I lost it one day because I could not found it. A couple months later for Christmas my dad framed it secretly for me. That is why it means so much to me. Plus I am a huge Brett Favre fan.
Step 3: THE CHEESEHEAD
If you ask a true Green Bay Packers fan you have a cheese head. Of coarse I do, but mine is a little more special. It is signed by Brett Favre. My aunt several years ago got it signed by him during a signing. I just received it recently for my birthday. It has been staying at my grandparents for years. It is a family thing. I will pass it down to my kids and then they will pass it down to there kids. I plan to put it into a glass box I will make.
Step 4: Great Rooms Start With a Great Theme
Now I will get into the steps to having a great room. Every room has to have a great theme. Mine as you can see is a Green Bay Packers theme. Think of something you like a lot. You will for sure make a better room if you like what you are working towards. It is that simple.
Step 5: Organization Is the Key
A room will not feel awesome until it is organized and clean. For example I made shelving units for my Nike shoes to add some space and they turned out nice. I used oak wood, some stain, and some metal shelf placements that match the room. I also posted a previous instructable on how to achieve good organization.Here is the link.
Step 6: Remember This Is Your Room
The theme does not need to take over your room. Remember that you want to feel comfortable in your room. I love to draw and paint. I kind of want to hang up some of my best drawings and paintings. I am not letting a theme stop that.
Step 7: Movie Night Is the Best!
Your room has to look good in the dark. When I am watching a movie I want the room to be pitch black, maybe a little light, so I can pay attention to just the movie. It has to be like a movie theatre. It helps with an HD LED TV and a PS4. It makes the movie.
Step 8: Conclusion
As you can see a great room takes a lot. Anyone can do it. You just have to want to do it. I wanted to. I Hope this helps anyone that wants a great room. Comment if you have any questions, or want some other tips.
