Finally! A mood board on the blog!

I’ve written this post three times now. Lots of technical problems today. Oy. Let me just try to see if I can get the pic in before I throw the computer against the wall. Geesh, WordPress. Or is it Apple’s fault. Perish the thought that it’s mine.

Hooray! It’s up! I’ve been trying to figure out how to do a mood board like this for what feels like FOREVER. And today I finally found the Moldiv app. It’s too soon to give it five stars, and certainly too soon to say I know what I’m doing, but this has gotten me closer than anything else so far. Hoo. Ray.

And you see, if I had a fancy blog, or wrote for a magazine, I’d then take the above and do a little something like this:

  1. Crate & Barrel Scholar Sideboard, $599
  2. CB2 Alba Credenza, $599
  3. West Elm Modern Buffet, $799
  4. CB2 Suspend Media Console, $899
  5. West Elm Reclaimed Wood + Lacquer Buffet, $1299
  6. CB2 Saga Credenza, $599
  7. IKEA Hemnes Sideboard, $299

Thoughts on the board?

UPDATE: Wallpaper mood board:

    Love the mood board. Are you thinking about getting a side board? Of course, without even looking at the prices, I ended up liking the most expensive one the best. What is it with me? I just seem to gravitate toward the most expensive item, no matter what it is. It is a serious personality disorder!

    Ha! Yes, I would like a side board, and I think I like the priciest one best, too. The issue I see with that one (aside from the price tag) is that our current dining table is also made of reclaimed wood. So, it could be a little overkill. That said, I eventually would like to see us with a white tulip table, so then that sideboard would be perfect. Ah, to have a zillion dollars!

    I like 1 and 7. But we should go to Crate and Barrel to look at it? Maybe skip facials and go 9/25?

    Although I don’t think I’m that into the C&B one, I love the idea of going there! There’s a West Elm in Milwaukee now, too!

Noontime walk. #hellobucky #bascomhall #ineedthosepitzips #sweatyandfreezing #winterinwisconsin #madisonwi
After an extremely long and entertaining (for those over 6) retirement party, my little Bear has crashed with her little bear. . . . I’ve heard through the office grapevine that some peeps don’t think kids should be at events like this. And that’s a legit opinion. But it’s not mine or Aaron’s so I think we should be all good. . . . Retirements are so bittersweet. This one was a doozy. . . . #wisconsin #friends #ourkidcomeswithus #wiscobarkid #bearonbear #workfamily #humility #sincerity #honesty #love #b&w #eyelashes
A series I’m calling An End of a Era: Skye Had a Limit. Truth be told, she ghosted on Skye and the gang maybe two years ago so this era has been over for some time, but I’m just now getting around to offloading it. And in doing so, I was reminded of both how much we accumulated and in how many forms. The Etsy pegdoll form, in which she asked me to give them little matching string scarves; the tiny little ones Molly insisted on painting because she saw it on YouTube; the pirate series; the Patrollers as poofy rubber squishy friends; and so many more. I love how kids get so into these stories and characters, but the merch is overwhelming. Still, I got a teensy emotional clearing it all out. As you may have guessed. . . . . #pawpatrol #cleaninghouse #growingup #etsy #toomuchstuff #growingpains #decluttering #endofanera
The answer when I Googled why I couldn’t see as well. I’m no doctor, but this seems to check out. #googledoc #visionprobs #over40
Somehow this pic disappeared from my feed! I cannot stand for such an injustice. The best breakfast sandwich in Madison must be seen and heralded. Blueberry jalapeño jam?!? Who knew?! @ancorakingst apparently. #madisoneats #sandwiches #breakfastsandwiches #sandwichesofinstagram #sandwichesofwisconsin #sandwichesofmadison #ancoracoffeehouse
The new @ancorakingst is everything. #ancoracoffee #ancorakingst #madisonwi #ancora #ancoramadison #madisoncoffeeshop #kingstreetbusinesses
