Decorating for the Artistic Soul

Give Your Toddler a Fun Bedroom for Pennies

Posted on: June 21, 2009

All moms want to have a cute room for their toddler to play and sleep in.  If you think creatively, this can really be done on a shoestring.   First off, you need to paint the room in a light, restful color, which means avoiding bright reds, purples and oranges.  Instead, choose a pale sky blue, a light apple green, soft yellows,  or a cotton candy pink.

Yes, wallpaper is back in fashion, but you can get a way with using just a border, placing it creatively around a window, doorway, or two-thirds up a wall to lower the room to a child’s level.  And if even that exceeds your budget, then simply paint a contrasting stripe in any of those places.  You can texture it by sponging it while it is wet, or add some stenciling, or even paste up some cute pictures along the stripe…all for the cost of a gallon of paint!

If you want to add interest to the walls, buy a  few sheets of craft foam  in various colors.  It cuts easily with a scissors, and you can trace anything the kids would like on it, cut it out, and use two-sided tape or glue it on the walls.  A few suggestions:

  • Cut out the alphabet, and either use that as the border around the room or zigzag it across a wall.
  • Cut out trains, planes, cars and motorcycles for the active boy.
  • Cut out little fluffy animals, or flowers, or whatever your little princess loves.

Hint:  If this exceeds your artistic ability, you can buy plain white foam sheets, paste pictures onto it and cut them out on the foam.  Then attach to the wall with your two-sided tape!
