It was the end of an era at Yankee Stadium tonight. I am not the world’s biggest baseball fan by any means (my father-in-law Zack, my husband Josh and inherently my son Austin, certainly are) yet I couldn’t help become emotional as the players rounded the historic stadium with glee while Frank Sinatra’s “New York, New York” repeated itself (18 times over). It was their last Yankees game ever in that stadium since 1923. Derek Jeter summed up the evening best when he said, “We have pride, tradition, and most of all, the world’s GREATEST fans in the world!” So let me introduce you to some of those fans: The Carrigan Family.
Sport! New York Yankee
Megan purchased the lanterns, rugs, storage bins, polka dot fabric and curtains from IKEA. The piggy bank, red & black bins, hurricane glass containers are from Target. Even the vintage baseball baskets were leftover from Easter ($0.75 each on clearance) are a la Target. The frames were a find from Goodwill and spray painted red. And what baseball themed room wouldn’t be complete without baseballs from Sports Authority?!
As for artwork, Megan ordered vintage Yankees posters on ebay and cut out photos from an old Yankee calendar. The bulletin board was created from leftover wallpaper and chair discovered on Craigs list. All the Yankee memorobillia was a lovely gift from her mother-in-law. Megan worked extra hard to paint and transform peices to match with the Yankee color theme.
Her favorite part of the room are the old baby books from when she was a baby.
