Musty smell in extra bedroom


I'm no expert, but before punching holes, I might try something like this around the room.

Like others have mentioned, the area shared with the sink and below the windows would be my first suspects.

Edited to add: Oops, Mike beat me while I was playing with the dog.

OK, if the bathroom doesn't smell, how about this: maybe you have a tiny leak in the plumbing behind the wall. If you have cement board up, you won't have mold in the bathroom. But the wall that's shared with that plumbing has sheetrock, and mold is growing on the back.
