Monday Moodboard... Carrie's Bedroom

Happy Monday and congrats to Carrie who ran her first half marathon Saturday and then joined us Sunday for our coed soccer game!  I still don't know how you were actually able to get on the field let alone run around.
Speaking of which, below is a little moody mood board for her and her bf's new apartment bedroom.

She asked me to base it on their already purchased duvet cover, which gave me the opportunity to add lots of bright colors.  Having been to her place I have suggestions for stuff they already own.  Carrie is very creative and a DIYer so I know she'd be able to handle this.  Her bf is also a talented, budding photographer so I thought a blow up a print of one of his shots would be a cool personal touch for their room.
  • Stain current nightstands and dresser with TV on top a darker shade to match new headboard (or paint them in a fun bright color).
  • Add mirrored door wardrobe to store your extra clothes and add space to room via mirrors.  Once you have this, get rid of clothes rack and chest.  Or use chest for other storage and spray paint a bright fun color. 
  • Paint current armoire a fun bright color and line the plexi doors with a printed paper using Modge-Podge.
  • I'd leave the lampshades white, but line them with a fun printed paper to match the armoire (like I did with the lamp I showed you, DIY for this coming soon). 
  • Get suspension rack for bikes to create floor space. 
  • Have your favorite photo by J blown up and framed for wall.
Happy Monday!

PS. Btdubs, thanks to the ever so lovely, testosterone and/ or 'roids pumped "gentleman" on the other team who gave me a bone bruise and rendered me a gimp today wearing "sensible" shoes because I can't fit my ankle into "insensible" hot pumps.
