I would love to create bedrooms that my kids will love to sleep in and play in, but dont have the funds to do that. So I was hoping that maybe some of the moms on circle of moms can suggest some websites that give decorating ideas, or how to create storage space etc. I really want my kids to love their rooms, but need a inexpensive way to create this. =0( Any ideas?

Removable wall stickers are great. They don't damage the wall and you can take them with you if you move (we just bought a house and I was able to just take them down and put them back up). They don't cost that much either. The family fun magazine website sometimes has cheap creative storage ideas too.

We are in the process now of decorating my son's room...it's been a pain in the butt but he's been really excited about it. We're doing a super hero themed room with Sabin as the super hero. Here's a picture of us working on it still..not quite finished but hope to be this weekend.

when we move into our next house (we just relocated and are in an apartment) I want to paint one whole wall in my boys room with chalkboard paint! I also recomend storage units from IKEA they are inexpensive, and good quality for the money!


i done this for my eldest when he was little we done it in the shape of a car its quite cheap & looks realy good gives them something fun to do aswell

Quoting Shannon:

maybe I'm the only one but i don't like the idea of chalkboard paint. I don't want my 2 yr old to think its ok to draw on the walls. I know you need to teach them the difference but at 2 that can be a hard concept to understand



I kind of agree with you. I was just showing her what I have seen but I'm not sure if I would do it myself. I love the different shapes they have and have wanted to do it but I'm not sure if I ever would. Chalk dust gets everywhere as well. But, maybe just put the cut outs on for the look and don't give the kid chalk.

I bought the stick on and peel off characters that you can buy anywhere. I got mine at Wal-Mart. My son is in love with the movie Cars so we bought those and put them up and got him a poster. It cost about $20.00. Since we are renting this is a great option because they can be taken down and don't damage the walls also when your childs likes change it easy to just take them off. If you don't want to paint a whole wall in the chalkboard paint you can buy pieces that are cut into shapes that just stick to the walls. At Wal-Mart they have these metal storage cubes that you can put together and get as many as you want depending on how many toys you have to store. I'm planning on putting bins in the cubes and taking pictures of what belongs in each bin so my son knows where his toys go and can find them when he wants to play with them. For the bigger toys I have a toy box.

at wal-mart you can buy canvas pretty cheap depending on the size and there are multiple ones in each package - I painted on them some lines and circles in colors that coordinate with my daughter's bedroom. I also did this for her restroom. Turned out very good and was very inexpensive !
