The "1954 BUICK HEADQUARTERS"

Recommended Posts

Took a lot of these pictures over a year ago but just finding a rainy day to post them.

This room use to be my son Jordan's room before and while he was in college. Then it became a "spare bedroom" but began collecting a lot of "pitch it in the door" junk. I finally decided to take it over for my office.   After cleaning it of all the junk and repairing some of the mysterious holes in the sheet rock  that had been hidden for years with Johnny Cash and Marine Corp posters (at least he had good taste in posters), Rita and Terry commenced to painting the walls in 1954 Buick colors of Tunis Blue and Malibu Blue. Note also the cabinets and tables are "Buick Engine Green" which I think goes great with the '54 Buick blue colors.

Thanks for looking and hope you enjoy.

That's sort of panoramic look. I can post some close ups and detail shots if any interest.

Thanks Dave,  nothing wrong with a basement. In fact I am considering expanding to ours but it is full of the junk from this room plus much more. Yard sale time!!!

Well if you got to have a "bug" a Buick Bug is a good one to have I guess.

Thanks Bill, I love that view too.

I agree with others Lamar ...

 

Very Nice & Looks Great!!!

 

Your space puts my little area to shame too! Nice collection and display.

 

I do have one matching item, the metal swivel chair in picture #2 and #10 above matches what I have at the metal desk I have.

 

I too really like the VIEW out the window!

I have personally been in this room and thought I died and went to Buick heaven. I seriously think it should be put on the national registry and declared a national landmark.
