After Tuesday's post on Love-40 and reminiscing about my old tennis racquet, I realized that I have never shown you what I did in my family room.
There is a weird space above our built in cabinets in the family room. After we moved in, I wasn't sure what to do with the space and I really didn't want to spend anymore money so I looked around and came up with an idea.
All of the sporting equipment that was too old to be very useful but was full of sentimental value was stored in the attic. Hmmmm....let's get it out and use it!
I had some greenery from Hobby Lobby and some Styrofoam, so I cut it to fit the 11 foot width of the top of the cabinet. I stuck the greenery in the Styrofoam and placed it above the cabinet.
Then I had fun placing my tennis racquet, my basketball from UT basketball camp, my volleyball from my high school days, my husband's favorite golf club (that he doesn't use anymore), a signed baseball bat, some deer antlers (not mine), a couple of wooden ducks, a Dr. Pepper collector's edition bottle from Baylor, and a vintage Uncle Sam tin sign.
Wanna see it?
You can see the big, black box in this photo:
It's Mr. Incredible's surround sound thingy....it's ugly but a man's gotta have his surround sound...or so I've been told. I think it looks a little better hidden in the greenery.
