Wordless(ful) Wednesday Makeover #2

Boomer Sooner!
So here is Nick and Nathan's room. As you can see, the boys got involved in this photo shoot. Here is Nathan putting his number one's in the air! I painted the bottom part of the wall green, with a white stripe above for the "sideline" then a red strip above it...the color on top is the original color of the walls...I figured it was close enough to cream, so I left it. My brother painted my nephews room the same way but switched the crimson and cream parts.....so the red part is on top. I didn't do it that way cause I wanted the fathead to show up well. I bought vinyl number and letter stickers along with a blank 8 1/2x11" white vinyl sticker that I cut down to make the yard lines....it was pretty easy that way...I know it took my brother something like 24 man hours to paint and stencil on the yardlines and numbers...always glad to learn from other people's hardships! ☺
Prince Charming obtained a jersey from a real player several years ago during a "yard sale" at OU...I don't think it was a famous player...but we pretend like it was!

The fat head! This one was a little more difficult to put up then A.D.

Ok...so there is a Jack and Jill Jack bathroom between the yellow and purple room and the red, green and cream room......what color should I paint their bathroom????? Do you think it matters? Does it have to go with the other rooms or should I just paint it blue?

I am currently working on a wooden sign that will go above their dresser...It will say "Play Like a Champion Today"....as the OU football players leave the locker room they pass a sign that says this....they all touch the sign as they go past it for Good Luck! There are black and white pictures of old OU football players around this sign....so cool...gotta love tradition!

Nathan is proud of his room!

Nick on the rug.

Their dresser...there is another one in their closet. This one I painted and distressed.

And it wouldn't be complete without a picture of a boy with a helmet on!
Hut Hut!

The football rooms are great! What a boys dream!! Heck... I think I'd like you do make me a football room and I'm a 31 year old grown woman!! :-)

He And Me + 3 said...

You are awesome! The time it must have taken you. I am so jealous! Very cool boys room!

Oh Boy...Oh Boy...Oh Boy said...

Totally LOVE it. We're so not sporting a real theme right now. I'm jealous...maybe someday I'll have a house that's actually decorated

Meme said...

Absolutely love both of their rooms! My 8 year old is very impressed as well. He thinks their bathroom should be blue, as in Boise State Broncos blue!!! Go BSU! okay, sorry about that, we will be getting some fatheads soon! love it!!

Threeundertwo said...

What an incredible room! You did a great job. I love how you figured out vinyl stickers for the yard lines and numbers.

For the bathroom? Maybe a softer green. I think you could almost use anything in there.

Tiaras and Tantrums said...

oh my - look at that room - I love theme rooms!!!!!

Kimber said...

That is the coolest boy room ever.

Jennifer said...

I love it :) We are wanting to redo the boys room this winter too. I love the fat head :)

Jen said...

That is so funny about UofM being your second favorite school! The Upper Penninsula that is where Shawn and I graduated from college. You are right...it is beautiful there but only in the summer. Winter in the U.P. is rough!

The Thompson's said...

Wow! I dont know what to say... BOOMER SOONER!! That room rocks! And the fat head is sick nasty. Love this blog to death!

Found you through another friend site, glad I did. Look forward to following your blog and beautiful family. We live in Houston now but did live in Tulsa. We hope that you will stop by and visit us. Maybe you can follow along in our journey here in this world also. We love followers. You gotta tell me how you got your followers thing to be reformatted like that. I wont tell anyone, I promise.

What can I say?-----------you certainly made a touchdown in the decorating theme!!!! It is just sooooo cool!!! You're the bestest mom around, I'm sure.

My Wordful is an update on Winston's Ladybug stool. Come on over if you can, I so love visitors and their comments!!! Happy day to you.

Mel said...

Brenda said...

Thats amazing! So glad you posted this, and your boys must love being in that room!

~Mrs Sandy~ said...

Wow!!! The bedrooms are amazing!!!!!

Nicole said...

Hi! I am new to your website. Your boys rooms are adorable! Do you mind me asking: Where did you find that football rug? Great job!

Dell5 said...

Liz ~ You are way too talented!! Both rooms look amazing! Do you mind coming to Pennsylvania to do my kid's rooms??!!

Julie said...

The rooms look awesome! I can't imagine how long it took to do those!

Melissa said...

Love that room also!!! Hope you dont mind if I "borrow" a few of your ideas!
I'm sure your boys will be cheering hard for OU tonight! We're Clemson fans but I'll throw a cheer out for OU tonight!

angie said...

It looks fantastic. Really exceptional..looks like a hit with the boys, too! :)

Ronnica said...

That's so perfect! You have one AD room and one OU room...that's great! I really like the idea of putting up a "Play like a champion today" sign because it has a great meaning!

Jane Anne said...

That is such a great room!! I am not sure how that would work for us. I went to Alabama and my hubby went to Tennessee. The boys all share a room. One cheers for Bama. One Cheers for UT and the youngest boy says he cheers for both. I can just imagine the mix of colors! Aaahh!! I love the room, though! Too fun!!

tollesons4him said...

Great room!! you did a fabulous job re-doing it although I am not a OU fan it still looks great! GO HOGS!!! sorry couldn't resist saying that.

BoufMom9 said...

What an awesome bedroom for the boys! WOW! LOVE it!
Happy WW!

Tracey said...

WOW~ That room is AWESOME! I wish I was as talented as you! You did a great job. I don't know of any boy that would not be proud of this room!

amanda said...

the rooms are too cool. do you have a cricut? or know someone who does...it's way easy to cut out vinyl letters and make your own signs. it's cheaper too. just a thought. :0) great job!

Eyeglasses & Endzones said...

My kids would wig out if they got a room like that!! Great ideas and awesome job. I just LOVE white moulding..makes everything pop...unfortunatly everything at my house is wood...maybe next time..yeah right!! I LOVE THE ROOM..Awesome job!

storyteller said...

What a fantastic room! I bet your kids LOVE it!
Hugs and blessings,

Somebody has been busy! You did a great job. I actually love the colors of Alex's room. Great job Liz!

Maggie said...

Oh my gosh, I just heard "KJ103" on your music, and MAN, does that bring back some serious memories!!! I grew up in Oklahoma (2nd grade through 9th grade) and listened to that station practically my whole life!!! I haven't heard that in YEARS!!! =)

I LOVE LOVE LOVE that room. You did an AMAZING job!!! I am so impressed!

Anonymous said...

Rebekah said...

Awsome. I love the yard-age idea on the lower part of the wall. I did my boys room up a few years ago- with a baseball theme. But your design there is too cool.

Stacey said...

That is one of the coolest room ideas I've ever seen! I wanna live in there! ;) Great job!
