Bedroom Makeover Design Board

The master bedroom is on the DIY to-do list this year. I’m starting to put together some ideas and this is the first draft. However, if you know me, you know this will change. Still, just for fun, here is what I’ve come up with. A lot of items are things we already own that I’m trying to work into the design.

The details:

  1. DIY Styrofoam/Convex Mirrors – using DecoArt MagiKote, Americana craft paints and Styrofoam wreath forms and PARTSMART SMR729193 8-1/2″ Offset Mount Convex Mirror
  2. Rubbed Bronze Ceiling Fan (a Mr. DIY must) – Overstock
  3. Vintage Inspired Industrial Large Number Signs (our anniversary date) – Antique Farmhouse
  4. Distressed European Wall Clock – Wisteria
  5. Sage Chinese Pots & Vases – Wisteria
  6. Burlap Crewel Damask Draperies – Ballard Designs
  7. Beach Postcard Lumbar Pillow Cover – Pottery Barn
  8. Beach Postcard Lumbar Pillow Cover – Pottery Barn
  9. Benjamin Moore –  Morning Dew
  10. Black Bowfront Chest – Wisteria
  11. Handwoven Rustic Rug – Wisteria
  12. Vintage Ticking Stripe Duvet Cover – Pottery Barn
  13. Old vintage steamer trunk

Other things in the room:

  • Hardwood floors
  • Two mismatched windows – a challenge!
  • King sized sleigh bed
  • Old dressers
  • Built-in dresser with hutch/shelving

And of course the design board is only a wishlist/dream since some of the items are not in my budget so imagine a DIY spin on some of those numbered items. We’ll use dressers we already have. Curtain panels will be stenciled drop cloths, a DIY knock off on the accent pillows. Vases/planters will be thrift store finds + spray paint. #13 – I already have those trunks but hope to do something fun with it. And #1, the Styrofoam Convex mirrors are a DIY project. I’m sharing the tutorial today at the DIY Club.

Do you take the time to ‘dream’ up a mood board for your room makeovers? It’s a great way to see how things coordinate and come together. Sometimes catalogs/a little internet window shopping is a great source of DIY inspiration.
