    Use that athletics page link and take the color numbers into anywhere you can get paint and they can match it.

    Why not darken the official red and use it on one wall only and leave the gold (yellow) alone? Paint the other walls a neutral tan (a.k.a. actual gold/tan color like the 49ers), since it's a narrow, windowless room. Conceptually, this would match the majority of the 1920s jerseys, which were tan pants with red jerseys. (For example, when making our shirts, I favored the vintage Cardinal, which was a darker red pantone 202, versus the brighter 187.)

    Re: Ideas for painting man cave/ISU room? (Share your pictures!)

    I just got done painting our logo on my man cave wall. I did it all by measuring, drawing, and taping off sections at a time. It took me for-freaking-ever, and was a giant pain the ***, but I eventually got it done after about a year of working on it on and off. It's about 5 feet wide and 3-4 feet tall. My "man cave" is really just our 4th bedroom in our basement. Not real big. I just have a futon, 2 TVs, Xbox One, etc. ISU stuff I have in it so far are:

    - ISU Football helmet
    - 4 mini helmets (still need a couple more)
    - Framed autographed pictures of Jake and AJ
    - Basketball autographed by CFH, Royce, Diante, Brackins, so far
    - Football autographed by CPR
    - Framed JTS picture from Iowa 44-41 3OT game with rushed field


    That's it for now. I have some pictures of the logo I painted, but can't post right now. I'll add them later.

    Apparently I'm on the other end of the spectrum, but go with a neutral and let your memorabilia be the decoration. Less is more.

    How long did that take you? That is pretty sweet!

    We did my sons room a couple years ago. We live in Colorado and the home depot out here had all the teams official colors in a book. Just ask at the paint counter. I assume if they had it at our Home Depot, they will all have it. We did the top 2/3 in Gold and the bottom 1/3rd in Cardinal, seperated by a wood rail painted white. Looks real nice.

    Here is a glance at my cave - I'll have to post more in the man cave thread after I get things cleaned up (we just had a party)

    We have a "red" accent wall on the back wall and on the wall with the bar/sink. We just bought the house a year ago, and it was already painted that way (thanks previous Cyclone fan owner!) and we love it. Get lots of compliments. It's red, but not a bright crazy red. Fits in really well with the rest of the cave.

    Here is a panoramic shot of the bar side of the basement, and then a closer shot of one of the walls. I was in a hurry at lunch and must have moved when taking the pictures because they are a little blurry. Oops. Gives you an idea though. Have fun!

    Nice bar, and a nice room! This is more where I was going with my post.

    Personally I would do something with that mismatched wood trim, and choose a different color for the greenish-beige wall, but this is not heavy or "college dorm". It would be interesting if that much red still held up without that nice bar in it though. That might be another key...add your elements in the room to the dark red to keep it from getting too heavy.

    This is what my wife and I did with our spare bedroom. We found a light yellow and painted the whole room, then I took off our heat register and painted it red. With the redone wood trim and a couple Iowa state posters hung on the walls, it looks good without being over the top.
