From that first little league softball game to that spiral kick on the football field that gives many of us the true devotion for the love of the game. A sport not only builds character but by participating you become part of a team. We all have different attributes and interests which make every person unique. Our surroundings should become part of us and help to proudly display our personalities. With sports consuming a big portion of our lives, it would only be natural to want to show off our pride to others.
A new interior decorating idea that has become very popular is to use vinyl wall decals. Fortunately, for the sports enthusiast there are numerous sport wall graphics literally from skateboarding to rock climbing. They are made on a tear resistant adhesive backed vinyl and are UV treated. This means they won't fade even if under constant direct sunlight. You just apply these on any smooth surface by peel and stick.
Home wall decorating can't be much easier then this technique. Sport wall graphics are contour cut, removable, repositionable, reusable and leave no sticky residue behind.
You can feature your sport wall graphics on any wall and in any room of the house. You tend to see this design in bedrooms, family rooms, garages and most dorm rooms. This trend has also taken quite a hold on apartment dwellers. For tenants that cannot paint this is a great outlet to awaken those dull walls. Since it leaves no marks or damage to the walls you can still decorate with piece of mind and get your deposit back when you move.
These decals come in all sizes, shapes and colors. You can purchase complete ready made kits or you can pick and choose to create your own design. With new technology you can take a picture and have it printed right on the vinyl. For an example I had a graphic made of my son in his football gear 4'x 4' and he became the focal point of the wall. You might say that my star is now the wall star! Around his picture are smaller pictures of pros and their stats. This was all my son's idea and because of this, his room is truly his own haven. He can't wait to bring his friends up to his room and hear their comments when they see his creation.
Gift giving seems like it is getting harder and harder no mater who the recipient is. This example might get your imagination churning. For my nephews high school graduation gift I put together sport wall graphics for his new dorm room for college. He was a huge fan of the hometown soccer league in his area. He also had a black belt in karate. Without his knowledge I was able to capture him at a competition and had a wall sports graphics mural made from that snap shot.
To his amazement I also had every face of all the soccer players. When I came to visit him on a family weekend I was the one that was amazed to see the work of art he had created with my gift. When you entered his domain you had the feeling you were enveloped in the world of sports. It was an awesome feeling.
Try this inexpensive technique that promotes drama, intrigue, fun and conversation according to your sports interests. Add on or take off from your design. One thing is for sure, you will never get bored. Open up your mind and get to work before next season starts. Stand up and cheer for your favorite team!
