Well I have finally gotten the go ahead to implement some of the changes to the gym that I have been dying to do.
My first call was to change the paint. The urine yellow walls looked HORRIBLE. It also reminded me of my middle school in-school suspension room.
To make matters worse, the gym wasn’t entirely yellow. There were a few random walls painted black, and there was a blue wall in there too. I have no idea who thought painting walls black in a small gym was a good idea, but it was def a dumb idea.
My new color choice was a very light gray. I wanted to open the place up and make it look bright and clean. White would get too dirty, and gray would be a nice neutral to go with the purple upholstery on the equipment. During the painting process I also began to remove a ton of the pointless and tacky signs that were posted all over the gym. There were advertisements for products that weren’t even carried in house.
And who can forget all the tacky looking photos that wrapped the ENTIRE gym. Definite overkill. There should be small sections of photos, but to try to cover the entire gym was a horrible move. It also made the walls look much shorter to the ceiling which in turn made the gym look much smaller.
Here are a few comparison photos…. …
