Have a man cave or a boys’ room to redecorate? Sports themed rooms can be a fun addition to your home or, for the die-hard fan, just the first step on a long journey. While you’re thinking of what to pack, consider choosing a material for your custom furniture and custom accessories that will not only demonstrate the depth of your devotion but also be environmentally friendly: reclaimed materials from the world of your favorite sport.
Woodworker Anthony Regole of Chair Built Custom Woodworking can take used hockey sticks, including your own, and create a variety of furnishings and home accents, like this ergonomically designed Adirondack chair with optional armrests made from goalie sticks or this hockey blade lamp. Get in touch with Anthony and describe the hockey themed piece you d like him to make.
Hockey dad and furniture maker John Bidini of Hockey House Furniture can create unique pieces from broken hockey sticks. This hockey puck clock can feature four of your autographed or keepsake pucks. Desktop items such as business card holders, picture frames, or desk clocks, like the one shown below, made with an official size hockey puck on a stick base, would be perfect for showing your fan colors at your workplace. Contact John and discuss your project ideas.
Looking for a way to commemorate the athletic achievements of your child or a significant other? Julie Moss of Moss Quilts & Embroidery can repurpose T-shirts and sports patches as unique pillows, like this hockey T-shirt pillow. Contact Julie and commission your own pillows, quilts, or blankets.
If you post your custom furniture or home décor idea on our “Get it Made” job board, CustomMade artisans interested in your project will come … and contact you. Specify that you’d like reclaimed materials from your favorite sport used in its construction. If you can provide some of your own materials for the project, it will have a special personal dimension you won’t be able to duplicate outside of a custom creation.
