I have never done a mood board before so you will have to bear with me. Now you may say “what business do you have doing mood boards when you are a DIY blogger”. And you would be correct in that statement. But a few posts back when I showed you the shelf makeover I asked if you wanted to see a mood board for the bedroom and I got positive feedback.
So here it is, warts and all. Because in the end it will help us see results for the DIY projects that need to be done in this room.
We have two bedrooms in this home and we opted to let the girls have the larger one since they have more stuff. Did I really think I had less things than the girls, when I came up with this foolish decision?
Anyway it is a small room and it has to function as bedroom, office and craft storage since all that has to go somewhere.
The thinking here is that I don’t have the space to place each piece on the floor so this way by placing them one on top of the other I conserve floor space and also get a piece which is more practical than before. You can see I have my printer on top of this unit.

Below are crude mock ups (some days no amounts of coffee will improve your editing skills) of what the pieces would look like.
I could even paint in the openings for the handles in the first one.
Below is a photo of one of them. As I was adding the watermark to it I found myself thinking “what am I doing, there is no way anyone would want to steal this photo from me. In fact I don’t even want to see it again!”
And of course there is a bed in the room. It is just a mattress on a frame at this point and it will be placed in the corner of the room. I am thinking of adding a short headboard that will not collide with the window sill. Yes the room is that small.
I made this room planner from the RoomStyler site. Love it, it let’s you manipulate your furniture all over the room and get 3 D images of it. So much fun, I can spend all day doing this! And I was not paid to say that!
If you’d like to see some more pretty mood boards for bedrooms head on over to Fox Den Road. Doreen has come up with some stunning looks here.
Now I want your opinions on all the above!
The dresser stencils: yes or no?
The bookcases: decoupage and white or something else?
And that MCM thing I put together: grey with wood on the interior or the other way around for the top portion?
