Pittsburgh Steelers Football Themed Tv Room

8 Hours
Now you might think I’m a little crazy for painting walls this bright gold and decorating a room all in Steelers Football motif, but I have an explanation. My hubby let's me decorate our home anyway I want. He puts up with all my yard sale stops, decorating visions and shenanigans and so I figured let's go all out and let him have a room he loves and screams FOOTBALL. He is such a HUGE Steeler's fan.
So when we moved in to the house we had painted the room a dark taupe above the molding and we had some Steeler stuff in here, but as we have lived here we really thought we should go all out. This room is very small and right off our Kitchen and Dining Room and leads out to the backyard. It’s small but it’s very cozy and where we land at the end of the day.
Did you know Glidden has Nfl paint colors?? Yes they do have every football teams colors. We went with Pittsburgh Steelers Gold. We are on a budget so a lot of the décor in here has been made from T-shirts that we found at thrift stores and yard sales. On the Gallery wall, three of the artwork were made from t-shirts too. The two pictures on the left are both t-shirts framed in glass and the one on the right is a t-shirt that we wrapped around some canvas and glue gunned it on. Diy on a budget right?? He had the clock, the pennant sign and the signed picture of Norm Johnson. Most of the frames we found at thrift stores or yard sales and a couple we spray panted black. I blew up his high school football team picture and framed it. He bought his son the Robitaille jersey and we're just holding it until he get's his own place but for now let's hang it and enjoy it right?? The ceiling fan was really old and eventually may be replaced so I had him pull the blades off and I spray painted them black and then hand painted the logos on each blade. I did them free hand or on my own and there is a post on how to do that too. And now let me ask you?? This room is love right??? He keeps telling me I did this for me. I think NOT. Even if you’re not a Pittsburgh Steelers Fan, I hope you like it. - Have a great day and thanks for stopping by, Lisa
New Steeler's Football Family Room Living Room
Our Gallery Wall we made with 3 T-shirts and frames we found at thrift stores and yard sales
This Gallery Wall has three pieces of art made from Thrift Store T-shirts. I framed the left two and the right bottom wrapped the t-shirt around canvas. They were a couple dollars and look like we spent a lot.

I painted the ceiling fan blades with Steeler's Logos by hand - there's a how to post if want to do it too
We put our lamps inside these trash cans my hubby had
I made some pillows out of t-shirts
I found the tray for $2 and we love it on our ottoman to hold our remote, sports book, coffee and coasters

There are always lots of Steeler's sweatshirts and this is one he's had for about 15 years

    I love it! We are from Oklahoma, and are HUGE Steeler fans. I am definitely doing my son's game room. You have inspired me to make over a boring game room into an amazing one. Thank you so much!! GREAT work!
