On a budget and looking for kids room decorating ideas?
Hey all, popping in today with a quick roundup of 10 easy and inexpensive decorating ideas for kids rooms. Whether you’re in the market to start a room makeover from scratch or just want to perk up a blah room, you’ll hopefully find something to inspire you!
If you’re looking for more involved furniture projects, definitely check out my other post about DIY furniture ideas for kids spaces. Tons of ideas in there, from beds to dress-up stations, little desks, outdoor play pieces, and more!
Teri does some fun projects for her daughter, and these Unicorn Spit rainbow-stained shelves are a prime example. I especially love the high-gloss finish on these, which would also be easy to clean. If you have a color-loving kid, these could be right up your alley.
I made this dollhouse bookcase for my daughter back when she was a little one. Now it lives in her room and is an easy way to display toys, books, and all of her other little things. I love the fact that it looks cute but is also super functional. (Related—check out the modern DIY dollhouse I made for her, too!)
The extent of Ramona’s art so far is a “firefly” craft daycare did last year by dipping her toes into paint and pressing them on the paper…lol. She is just starting to get into coloring and drawing, though. We sometimes tape a piece of paper down and let her scribble on it with the big easy-to-hold crayons.
I’m sure I’ll be even more sentimental about her art once it isn’t just scribbled lines, and this display option is a great idea. I love that it’s easily interchangeable.
This idea can be implemented pretty much anywhere in your home, but as far as easy DIY kids room decor ideas go, it hits a key point: it’s a wall surface that they are actually allowed to write on. And they can erase it and write some more!
The key, though, is having them be old enough to understand to keep the writing on the dry erase board only 🙂 (I love it with the wallpaper here, too.)
One of mu favorite inexpensive decorating ideas for kids rooms is to use old or thrifted toys to make bookends. I made these neat unicorn bookends out of scrap wood and cute unicorn figurines I found at Goodwill.
But I loved them so much I decided to keep the unicorns for myself. Ramona doesn’t have real bookshelves yet, so I put the unicorns on my plant shelving. 🙂
I made these gorgeous rainbow wall decals for my daughter's room using my Cricut! If you don't have a Cricut or don't want to buy one, you can buy decals like these online. Etsy has a ton of great options, and just a few can go a long way to creating a cool accent wall.
