My boyfriend is a trooper. This is the truth. Not once has he complained about moving into girl land. He even took the closet in the guestroom just so that I wouldn’t have to share my clearly-big-enough-for-two-people master bedroom closet. That, my friends, is L-O-V-E.
In return for his patience and acceptance of the pretty, girly home I’ve DIY-ed over the past few years, I wanted to “man up” the den a little. It’s no secret that floral curtains and lavender candles don’t go hand in hand with Monday Night Football.
First things first, I swapped out my girl-centric curtains for more man-friendly panels…
And can anyone spot the compromise in this picture?
A big old buck has made his way into the den. True confession: I painted this canvas for Michael last year for Christmas, so I was excited to have this little fella hanging on my walls, but manly nonetheless, right?
And what’s more handsome than drawings of ships? These have been in the den for a while, but all Michael’s friends seem to think they are pretty cool when they stop by the house, so I take that as a sign of the man stamp of approval.
All we need now is a kegerator and a stripper pole and this room will be a match made in man heaven but unfortunately, neither of those fit into my design scheme. Shucks.
