Our Nascar themed gameroom

My husband has been a fan of Nascar, especially Dale Earnhardt Sr, since he was a young boy. He has so many collectibles but never really had the space to properly display them. When we bought our new house in February, he said that I could decorate any way I wanted as long as he could have one room to display some of his collection so we decided to use the den. It's the family's gameroom. So, he says " Honey, let's paint it black and white checker board like the Nascar finish flag." and I freaked out. However, once I thought it through, I came up with the design you see in the photos. I custom built and hung the shelves for him and taped and painted for 2 weeks to get it just right. I think it turned out wonderful and he is so happy to have his favorite pieces on display. We now have our pool table, electronic dart board and XBox 360 in there since the photos where taken. I took them before so the photos would show the painted walls well. Hope you enjoy these photos. I had so much fun painting and decorating the room for him. He's so worth it! :)

Thanks for the comments. Really, it was alot easier than I thought it would be. Just alot of blue painter's tape and time to tape off the squares. after that, the painting was really easy.
