DIY: Making a Surfboard Room

Surfboard rooms are perfect for the sunny coastal rooms, or children that enjoy the thought of the beach, surfing and other sunny activities. Although surfing is a very expensive sport, there are many things that we can do to incorporate a surfboard design into a room that can bring the child right through their teenage years.

Color is an important element of the Surfboard room. No surf board I have ever seen has been dull, and therefore it is important to make this room pop with color. Consider this expensive investment, but an important focal point from the room. Hang a surf board from the ceiling with clear twine and hooks, securing it on the underside with clear adhesive tape. Not only is this a great way to store the board when it is not in season, it gives the surfing room a focal point.

A Surfboard table is a great way to add personality to the room. It can be crafted by using three pieces of plywood, each cut into the shape of a surfboard. After the pieces are cut, sanded and primed, they should be airbrushed to create a popular surfboard design. This is going to be a main focal point of the room, and should be featured. Ensure that the boards are treated with varnish, as they are going to withstand hours of homework and play time. Next, use metal braces to adhere two of the surfboards together, adjacently, to make the table top. The next board can be cut in half to create the legs that are going to support the table. Adhere the legs to the table top using metal brackets and wood glue. Attach the table to the wall on the underside of the table, again, using metal brackets, and the table is ready to face the wind!
