We all need a change every now and then, but sometimes we just simply can’t afford to give our kid the room of their dreams…until now. Here are some of the most creative and least expensive ways to makeover your kid’s room. Plus, these DIYs get them involved! It’s a win-win.
1. Drive Them Up The Wall
Instead of tripping on toy cars, glue them to a mirror and create a race car theme for your kid’s room. Use a mirror with a thick border and some crazy glue and you’re done!
2. Get It Down To A Fine Art
Your fridge need not be the only place to plaster your kid’s artwork. Take up wall space in their room instead by using this simple DIY interchangeable art display made with curtain rods.
3. Use Every Trick In The Book
Create a reading corner or nook for your child that either loves to read or could use a little more quiet time. Make it comfy with lots of pillows and a great reading lamp.
4. Tell Them To Stuff It
Use a shoe organizer to keep those stuffed animals in line instead of scattered all over the floor. It’s useful, aesthetically pleasing, and protects your child from the monsters in their closet, wink wink.
5. Chalk It Up
Stop your kids from writing on the wall and driving you up the wall by painting them a chalkboard wall which they can draw pictures on and erase over and over again to their heart’s content.
6. Put A Cork In It
Your teen will love this DIY idea for their room. Have them cut out corkboard into fun shapes and stick them on the wall in their room to pin photos or concert tickets to.
13. On The Dot
To create this look, cut out a dish sponge in the shape of a circle, dip it in some wall paint, and apply to the wall using different shades of the same colour.
14. Get The Hang Of It
Here’s another place to store stray stuffies. Make your own stuffed animal shelf by drilling a hole into either end of a sturdy branch and using knotted rope to create a swing effect.
15. You Gotta Hand It To Them
This is a really sweet idea. Have your child dip their hand in paint and make a hand print in the centre of a brightly painted canvas to mark their growth each year.
16. Light It Up
To get this soft lighting effect for your teen, get yourself some ping pong balls and a string of small Christmas lights. Poke a hole through each ball with an X-acto knife and slide a light into it.
