Bookends add a wonderful décor detail to any room, and books are a big part of any kid’s space. So, why not get creative with your bookends? There are several ways to do this, but one of the easiest is to go to a kitchen store and choose some fun salt and pepper shakers – nowadays, you can find them in infinite shapes, themes, colors, or sizes.
Get some small wooden blocks from the nearest crafts store and glue each shaker to a block. Alternatively, you could also choose some of your kid’s favorite toys instead of the shakers and glue some cars or dinosaurs onto the wooden bases. This will create little statues that can serve as bookends for any shelf in your child’s room.
Use an Old Drawer for Under-the-Bed Storage
You can never have enough storage when you have kids, so this DIY project will not only make a room look better but it will be extremely functional. If you have any old furniture with drawers lying around the house, you can repurpose one of the drawers and create a slide-in storage space under your kid’s bed. Of course, you’ll have to take measurements to make sure it fits nicely.
It will add a lot of storage space to your kid’s room, and sliding it under the bed ensures it stays out of the way and leaves more room to play. And if you want to take it a step further, you can always get dividers and place them inside the drawer so you can compartmentalize and organize more neatly.
Repurpose Clothes Hangers as Book Racks
This is a great DIY hack that allows you to make use of those forgotten clothes hangers that are just taking up space in your closet. All you need is some colorful paint or even colored tape to decorate old hangers and turn them into book racks for your kids’ room!
You can hang open books on each hanger and even use them to remember what page you were on for the next storytime. If you hang them in a specific order or pattern and match the colors, they can look like beautiful décor items, all the while functioning as extra storage and giving you a lovely way to display your child’s favorite books.
Decorate the Walls with Paper Flowers
There are countless ways to decorate your kid’s room walls – paint, stencils, decals, stickers, etc. Another creative idea is to make paper flowers and hang them on the walls. A quick trip to your local arts and crafts store is all you need; you can get some colored cardboard paper or even Styrofoam in different hues and then cut them in the shape of different flowers.
You can mix and match different colors and sizes, and then all you have to do is glue them together to make a gorgeous bouquet. Hang it over your kid’s bed or wherever there’s an empty space on the wall.
Fashion Cute Mushroom Chairs with Wood and Pillows
Mushrooms are one of the most beautiful elements in nature; their colorful patterns, sizes, and shapes make them look as if they were hand-painted. So why not add one of these lovely nature-inspired elements to your kid’s room? All you need are some medium-sized logs and a few small, round, and flat pillows that you can get at any department store.
Buy some red and white fabric paint to cover the pillows in a dotted mushroom pattern, and then glue them to the ends of each log. Make sure the log is wide enough for your kid to sit on, and you’ll have funky mushroom chairs to decorate your kid’s room and spark their imagination.
