Jay's Sports Orange and Navy Bedroom

I'm finally happy enough with the results of Jay's bedroom to take a few pictures!Disclaimers: The frame that it came with was the wrong size, so we are still missing the headboard, foot board and bed skirt, but it still looks pretty great!

 Here are 5 black and white pictures of family members playing sports: Grandpa and his brother playing football, John running a 1/2 marathon, Angie playing volleyball, grandpa running a 1/2 marathon, and uncle Chad playing soccer.  Tebow is in the middle...partly because none of the pictures I could find were good enough to print an 11x14 print, and partly because we wanted a picture of Tebow in the room.  We don't care that he got traded, he is still a bronco in our hearts! (I did get a better matte for the Tebow print since this picture was taken).
 The Denver Bronco's hanging lamp that John had in his room as a kid.
 Football beanbag I got from King Soopers Marketplace.  I came as just the bag for $13.  I was going to try and find cheap filler, but I decided it was too much work and bought the $8 bag of filler balls.
 This is the lamp that Jay had in his monster room.  Also the scrapbook page I did for his monster room can stay behind the door because it is orange.  The football Sentsy warmer is something I bought for Jay.  His babysitter sells Sentsy and I thought this one was perfect! (Sometimes the room smells like diapers, so it is a good thing!) The canvas print of our family is the one with a flaw in it, but it is nice for him to have a family picture in his room.  The clock is one of my current projects.  I saw a cute orange clock at Kohls, but it was still $14, and I didn't know if I could spend that money, when I might be able to paint it or another one.
 The "J" was on Kohls clearance for $5, The balls are either from garage sales, or from my collection of balls that we actually use.  Hanging is Jay's Tebow Jersey.  Not sure what we will do with it yet, but it might still fit him this year, so I don't want to frame it.
 The bear is "brown bear" from Kohls, but I found this awesome navy and orange football uniform for stuffed animals on this ugly dinosaur at the ARC, I washed the uniform, put the clothes on a cute animal, and threw the dinosaur in my garage sale pile.  The helmet came with a christmas tree attached to the top and I got it for 90% off at hobby lobby.  We detached the Christmas tree and Walla! (I blogged about that one HERE.
 Top to bottom: The navy wicker baskets are from Michaels, the wire one is from the ARC.  I bought some small balls to display in the baskets, but Jay always wants to play with them, so they usually are not in there.  The scarves are from clearance at Walgreens (I think they were $3 each).  The tiny broncos mascot was a present from grandpa and grandma Shaler.  The basketball sign I got at Hobby Lobby on clearance (but it was still like $16).
Whew.  Still to do:
Figure out a good place for books and socks.
Paint the step stool to get up to his bed navy or orange.
Replace a few pictures or picture frames.
But....right now I have decided to work on the nursery instead:)
