Day 15: Art For A Kid's Bedroom

There is a large blank wall space above the boys' dresser that is begging for some art, photos or really anything. 

Whatever we choose, I want it to be in keeping with the old school football/rugby vibe we have going on in the room.  But I can't seem to make a decision.

Until I was rummaging through the office closet and found this:
Back when I surprised James by turning the man-cave turned fam-cave, back into a man-cave (follow that?), his parents sent a Knute Rockne poster called "The Coach" for an addition to the room makeover.  I didn't realize that it was the same one I ordered off EBay.   Theirs was a better quality, so we had that one framed and I intended to just return the one I ordered.....but never got around to it.  Story of my life. 

I rediscovered it through this "Working With What You Have " mission and realized that the colors worked perfectly with the boys' room scheme.  It even had a few subtle touches of red.  It really doesn't get more old school football that this...

It's not a standard size, so I'll have to wait on framing it for a few more weeks.
I'm really excited about using what might be considered a grown up print in a kids room.  It has the right vibe, great history, and will give the room longevity as the boys grow.  I can't wait to see it up on the wall!


Has anyone else used "grown up" art in a child's room or even nursery?  How do you create a room that will stand the test of time?
