Fortunately, switching up a kid’s bedroom doesn’t have to be a budget-breaker. If you plan ahead, you can come in under budget and accomplish a lot in just one weekend. Plus, when we work together and tap into our family’s

creativity—it can be a lot of fun!  When we get our kids invested in the process, they not only love their new room, but oftentimes they also gain a renewed commitment to keeping toys off the floor and school supplies organized.

5. PICK A NEUTRAL PALATE AND ACCENT WITH COLOR

6. CREATE ZONES

10. REPURPOSE AND RECYCLE

 

5 Tips for a DIY Kids' Room Makeover

The Statement Wall- This big-scale design makes an impact, but easily changes over time: We can hang art inside the shapes or add decals on top.

The Storage Plan-  I floated crates on the wall to create the illusion of more space. Inside them, bins corral smaller toys.

A Cozy Corner- Tossed all their stuffed animals into a hardy laundry bag. When it’s totally full, it works as a big floor pillow, but it’s easy to dump out when it’s time to play. 

Easy Seating- Now I want to make a whole forest of critter stools.

The Lighting- Blocks and a big shade? Perfect!

We'd love to see your before and after photos if you take advantage!
