My husband is a huge Texas Longhorns fan. Like, seriously huge. As a third-generation Longhorn, he was born bleeding burnt orange, but his fandom is next level. We actually had a reference to Texas football in our wedding vows, the string quartet played Texas Fight when the groomsmen and he walked down the aisle, and his wedding band even has Bevo symbols engraved around it (for real, you can see it here). With the first Longhorn football game of the season this weekend, I thought it would be good timing to share the décor of our Texas Longhorn-themed game room. Obviously, it was a no-brainer that our game room would be decked out in burnt orange. The hubs wanted a Longhorn man cave to watch college football game days (when not at a game and tailgating). Just like when we did G’s burnt orange and gray Longhorn-themed nursery, I wanted the space to be classy and coordinated, and to feel unique and customized. As always, I also wanted to do it on a budget. This required repurposing some of the art and furnishings we already had, going to IKEA for cost-effective additions, then supplementing them with a few nicer accents. Note: This post was updated in 2021 after having made some furniture changes over the 5 years since the original post was published. I have included a mixture of original and updated photos to further inspire your Texas Longhorns man cave planning.

How we decorated our Texas Longhorns man cave / fan cave

We started with painting the walls gray (I love the combination of gray, orange, and white). We also used some of our existing cherry colored furniture (cherry looks great with burnt orange) as a starting point to the room’s furnishing.
Here’s how it all came together.
I am pretty happy with how the room has come together. More importantly, the hubs is really proud of it. See, even your man cave can be fab!
