A surf-inspired loft playroom calls for some fun DIY ideas.  With every mood board I create a bonus board of DIY ideas.  I think DIY projects are the best way to save money and add personality to a space.  Check out the sources below.


  1. Chalkboard Surf Board – This post has a great round up of surf board inspired decor.  My favorite is the chalkboard painted surf boards.  Would be a fun accent piece for your boys to keep score or for you to write inspirational quotes.
  2. Dipped Side Table – A little paint treatment and you can make your own modern side table.  Instead of gold paint, try aqua or kelly green.
  3. Fabric Art - Stretch fabric to create instant art.  If you have a large blank wall to cover this is a great inexpensive way to make large art panels.  Try Ikea or Marimekko for over-scale modern prints.
  4. Beanbag Chairs – The ultimate seating for game playing.  Be sure to make extras for all the neighborhood kids that hang out at your house.
