Okay, we have something awesome for you today! I can hardly contain my excitement but first an update on our home gym progress.
I wanted to share a few of the new items we have added to the gym over the last few weeks. We don’t have a huge budget for this room to splurge on big items so when our Breakfast Nook Makeover Mood Board won the Makers Mood Board Challenge last month from Porch.com & ATGstores.com we were SUPER pumped to pick out some awesome and unique décor pieces that would fit the industrial style of this room.
ATGStores.com offers such a wide variety of products that it was hard to choose what we wanted to get with the gift card we won. Dishwasher…treadmill….light fixtures…tools…squirrel! I don’t usually have a hard time focusing but with so many options I couldn’t keep my mouse from clicking rapidly around the website, my mind changing every two seconds with what I wanted to pick out.
Ultimately, Brent and I decided that since we don’t have one room in our home entirely finished, it would be nice to pick out products that would round out our gym that were both functional and decorative. That way once we are done with our last few DIY projects, the room will be complete and we will have our first room makeover done in our home.
Below are the items we picked out. It felt like Christmas in August because we got a new package delivered every other day. Can we all agree that the only thing better than getting packages in the mail are getting packages in the mail you didn’t have to pay for?! It’s such a treat!
Our first pick was this wall fan. It checked all the boxes we were looking for in a fan for this room: wall fan, industrial style, oil-rubbed bronze finish and three speeds. We mounted it right above our treadmill and I have already tested it out a few times. It works like a charm. That is one perk of having your own home gym; you can literally mount a nice looking fan right across from the treadmill and blast it directly on your face full speed while you are running. It is heavenly. Plus, we think it looks pretty awesome against our faux brick wall.
Another item we choose for the home gym was this wall clock. This particular clock didn’t match the style we were going for in our gym BUT we had big plans in store for it. What we liked about it was how simple it was, the large size, the block numbers and the beveled rim. It made for the perfect clock to use for our DIY vintage clock project.
I wanted to add a rug to the gym that had some color to break up the space and to designate as the yoga area. When I found the this blue rug I knew it was the one. We liked the braided texture that gave the rug a relaxed and casual feel. It fits the space and style perfectly and once I got it in the room and looked at it up close I liked it even more. It has a cool pattern that I hadn’t noticed online.
A few other items we picked out for this room included a TV mount to hang our TV on the wall as well as some hooks that we will be using on the lockers we will be building.
Okay, now for the REALLY fun part! It’s time for a Gray House Studio Giveaway!
