Home Gym Makeover

When we arrived home from our Christmas trip to Iowa we discovered Trigger (our retriever) had “ruined” the room he was kept in when our housesitter wasn’t there. And by ruined… I’ll spare you the details… it was gross.  So initially we had the carpets cleaned, but that didn’t work and in the back of my mind I had wanted to put down a new gym-like flooring in that room anyway as it was a triple-purposed room {gym, guest room, Triggers room}.  So… away we go!

The bed in there is a Murphy bed built by my husband {of course}.  First, that came off the wall and the carpet came out. 


Then we got to work! A few coats of paint (grey and black). Stained planks for the TV wall. Shelving around the bed with complementary stained wood behind the shelves. Then flooring, of course. We went with 3/4″ foam flooring (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00659XWJQ/ref=cm_sw_r_awd_OgKovb0R986V8) which could not have been easier!  

We added TRX and will soon replace the mirror with a wall quote.  



 For some artwork I used my Cricut Explore, some scrapbooking paper and $8 frames from Michael’s. The shelves house not only our weights, bands, med ball, etc but also “inspirational”/skinny pictures! Ha! I need all the help I can get!!
