Here are some pictures of my top floor, it is a half room then other half is the attic.  Old homes often have these type of rooms up top, and the wife figured to give me it and she can decorate the rest of the house. 

Walking up the stairs, the view:


Take a look to the right is the main window and my shelves on each side:

Keep turning right and across from the couch is my entertainment stand and '42 LCD.  PS3 is downstairs so I got the older systems up here:

Opposite of the large window (doors to a close and attic) is the Beatles album frame that I created (most creative I have ever been)

looks pretty solid... good idea. How do you like the wife decorating the rest?

Not bad at all, we have similar tastes so nothing really done that I hate or anything like that.  Plus I do most of the work so I can always veto something by refusing to hang/paint/tile, etc

PS the furniture up there is a bit old, but I can't fit anything big up there due to the stairs, so I can only fit a love seat as a couch and that stuff matched. Eventually it will be replaced, probably have to do IKEA and build it up there

The 95's are Nike IDs, good call.  And for the Shox R4, just a pair that I've always liked, no other reason to have them up


Love the ads

where do u get those?

I'm trying to start my own SI cover collection

I have collected the ads from various mags, mostly old Sports Illustrated and Runners World.  Once I got them (and I actually have a huge collection of them), I took those and the SI's themselves and simply bought cheap black diploma frames from Hobby Lobby (run you 5-8 dollars each), and there it is.  Nice, simple, clean look compared to most frames.  As for finding what ads I want, if you go to the Sports Illustrated site and into their "vault", you can actually search and view all their back issues 10 years or older.  Find the ad you want, order off ebay for a few bucks, and tear it out.  However most of them were just from my collection of old mags and going through them.  As for the furniture, it sucks because I have a nice couch that I can't get up there, but as I said earlier, it will all eventually be replaced.  A mini fridge is also going to be an addition up there as well, gotta have some cold brew so I don't have to walk all the way downstairs while playing Mario 3

Nice, clean, bright- what more can you ask for a space that otherwise would be wasted.

very neat set-up... some people over do it when they create a "man-land" like this

but yours is very clean. I'm loving all those ads and SI covers.
