3 Budget – Friendly and Stylish Ways To Decorate Your Toddler Boy’s Room
When I was pregnant with Dominic, I had all of these elaborate ideas about how his baby room would be. What parent wouldn’t dream about giving their kid any and everything? I’d stay up for hours after work looking at baby decor as I awaited my baby’s arrival.
Once Dominic came, we were a bit slow in decorating. The sleepless nights and days filled with feeding and changing diapers were more than enough without adding on the thought of decorating.As you fellow moms know, it’s a bit of a change once the baby comes. Months pass by before we both were even able to get a full night’s rest.It wasn’t until Dominic was 6 months did we finally even build his crib.
Our moving to Texas was the spark I needed to finally get Dominic’s room together. I wanted ideas and decor items that were budget-friendly ( moving was NOT cheap!) and easy to do on my own even when my husband was away. This brings me to the easy and frugal ways I’ve started to decorate Dominic’s room.
Purchase Small Baby Furniture
When Dominic was younger, I was in love with the idea of having a rocking chair in Dominic’s room. I wanted to read and rock him to sleep in that chair. A year and a half later and a few hits to our budget, I’ve had to alter this dream. I found this sheep rocking chair at a consignment shop near my home for $15 bucks! Can you believe it?
Dominic may be too big for my dream for me to rock him to sleep in a rocking chair but now he has his own mini rocking chair. He can sit in his chair on his own and have his reading time.
2. Create a Gallery Wall With Paintings
I’ve started a gallery wall with these cheap and cute paintings I’ve found at Marshalls. Oh, if you don’t know Marshall’s is where you need to be checking for decor that fits your taste and your budget. So far, I’ve only started two but I’m sure to cover the entire wall.
You can also see in picture of Dominic’s sheep rocking chair that I’ve hung a “Little Man’s Cave” picture there as well. The ultimate goal when decorating is making the most of your empty wall space. Paintings are an easy way to create a cohesive theme.
3. Use Picture Frames and Themed Figures
The theme of Dominic’s room is a mix of blue tones and a variety of animals. I initially started out with a Safari theme but that changed once I saw how dull those colors were. For Dominic’s dresser, I chose to use these elephant and giraffe figures in addition to framed pictures of our family.
Want to know the beauty of each of these decor ideas?
- You can usually find each of these within the $10 to $15 budget range.
- Depending on your budget, you can buy as many or as little as you want. You could buy once every paycheck, every month, etc.
PIN IT FOR LATER:
Slowly but surely, you will start to see your toddler’s room become the one you’ve always wanted. Dominic’s room is not exactly where I want to be but with these small but effective ideas I’ll have his room completed in no time without breaking our budget.
Until next time….
