Creative Ideas for Kids Rooms on a Budget

Friday, April 6, 2012 Leave a Comment

There are so many creative and easy things to do to add a little fun to your kids room.  Below are just a few ideas I have come across to get you started. 
Of course most of the items can be purchased, but why not make it a DIY project!
Chalkboard tables are a fun way to add a reusable art space.  If you have an existing children’s table all you need to do is go to your local home improvement store and purchase a spray can or two of chalkboard paint. 
If you are lucky enough to have a table with four legs, cut the center out the same diameter of a cool whip container, place it in the hole for a great place to store the chalk.
Vinyl stencils are a great way to personalize a space.  One site I love is http://www.thesimplestencil.com/ .  They have a huge selection of fantastic ideas, you can select the size, color and most are removable.

I saw this great idea in the Land of Nod catalog.  Why not make your own!  All you need is some colorful string or ribbon and eye bolts to secure to the wall.
Create your own fun clips by getting standard cloth clips and fun paints and small wood cutouts at your local hobby store.

 I love this super cute idea for the ballerina in your house.  Take a simple table and her outgrown tutu to create a fun festive table.

Happy Designing!
