Tack Room Decoration Ideas!

So, I have yet to update my journal on here, but one of the good pieces of news is where I am leasing, I get my very own tack room! All for me! The owner of the place said I can decorate it and furnish it however I like. I plan on making it a project of mine to decorate and add my own personal touch to it.
So how should I do that? Anybody have any ideas?
(I go out there every day so today I will take a picture of the space to give you all a better idea of how it looks.)

Hmmm... Maybe put up framed pictures of your horse(s), or hang up cheap bits as decorations...
I'm not much of a decorator, as you may notice ;)

Mine has a small couch and a trunk for putting the feet up and kicking back. A pile of horse mags and clean tack to look at, a few pics of your favorite horses, what more could a horse person ask for.

what's the budget? That will make a big difference in what you can do.

LOL, FP, you're too funny.

I am not much of a decorator either so what little decoration mine has is just some old bits that I don't use anymore hanging on one wall, along with a miniaturized driving collar that we've had for years and I found in a pile of junk recently.

OMG sound like fun! some tips:
have saddle racks on walls rather than on stands, it opens up the room
have a cork/white board to write or draw cool stuff on

find some old fashion stuff to furnish, super cheap!like:
turning an old driving collar into a mirror(attach a mirror along the inside rim)
welding 2 horse shoes together into bridle racks.
get an old rocking chair and make it comfortable with a Navajo blanket or sheepskin
hang up pictures of you riding and your horse
Hope this helps

Wow, so many replies! Thank you!!
Here is a picture of the tack room. So very bland but an awesome space!

I definitely need to sweep and dust and clean it out a bit. I've already taken so many pictures of the horses that I think it would be a wonderful idea to frame some of them on the walls. I like the idea of a wipe off board on the wall, too. If a chair fits comfortably in there I'd like to do that.
