Okay you have your foundation in place. Now is whenrepparttar fun begins. Pick a theme, any theme. Bed in a Bag sets are really reasonably priced and are available in many different themes so are a great place to start when you’re on a budget. Then add a coordinating lamp, a couple things onrepparttar 100019 wall and an accent rug. Pick up some Wallies™ and slap them onrepparttar 100020 walls or even onrepparttar 100021 furniture.

Whenrepparttar 100024 kids get to be involved inrepparttar 100025 decision making, they are more likely to “own” their new décor. And we can always hope that will give them some incentive to keep it clean!

Oh, and that budget I mentioned earlier? (You hoped I forgot didn’t you?) Only you know what your budget is for decorating your kid’s room, and it doesn’t matter if you have $200 or $2000 dollars. You can’t even begin to plan a room re-do without knowing how much you can spend. Otherwise you’ll be out there floundering around buy stuff you don’t probably need and can’t afford.

If it’s $200, you’ll most likely be looking at paint, bedding and a couple little room accents. You might even be able to pick up a second hand night stand to refinish. But if we’re talking $2000, you can do some new furniture and maybe new carpet too!
