Have you entered to win a custom mood board, yet?  You have until tomorrow night to leave a comment on yesterday’s giveaway post for your chance to win a free custom mood board for any room in your home.

Today, I have a double round up of DIY ideas to share that go along with the Warmth & Peace Family and Dining Room mood boards.  My favorite way to personalize a space and stretch your dollar, is DIY projects.  A link to the source for each DIY project is below the images.

  1. $10 Picture Ledges – Make inexpensive picture ledges or just take the layering of frames as an inspirational example.
  2. Ribbon Lampshade – Spice up a plain lamp shad with ribbon.  You can buy inexpensive shades at Target and add grosgrain ribbon to customize them.
  3. Rope Laundry Baskets – Replicate the look of high-end rope baskets with inexpensive laundry baskets.  These would be great for storing toys.
  4. Tiled Fireplace Surrounds  – Remove a dated traditional mantel and tile the wall around the fireplace from floor to ceiling.
  1. Frank Lloyd Wright Inspired Window Cling – Frank lloyd Wright was famous for his stained glass.  Get a similar look by applying a window cling to a glass door.
  2. Double Shade Chandelier – Create a high-end looking chandelier with two shades and a light kit.
  3. Dip Dyed Curtains – Take off-the-shelf cotton or linen curtains and dip dye the bottoms.
  4. French Striped Table Runner – Make easy table runners with a simple stripe.  On long rectangular or oval tables, I think it looks nice to put two table runners crosswise between the side chairs, like shown here.

Have a space you need help with?

My mood boards are like a visual shopping list for your perfect room.  In addition to the mood board, I include a free DIY ideas board for the room.  Get yours here.
