Nursery Makeover Tips For Under $30

If you are anything like me, you planned your nursery, obsessed over every detail but still feel like it could always be BETTER.  A never ending work in progress if you will.  Without doing a total redo here are some tiny, inexpensive ways to give any child’s room a little perk without opening the purse strings to wide…

1. Initial it. For approx $30 choose a letter like this one to accent a dead wall.

2.  Stick it. Love wall decals (Wall Candy) for some fun that you don’t have to commit to. The monster set retails for $28 (some of the others are a bit more pricey.)

3. Time to grow. Add a cute growth chart by Eeboo ($16.95)on the outside of a boring closet for a little color and sentiment (not to mention a great keepsake).

4. Draw it. Stencils are a fabulous find even for the artistically challenged like myself. ($24.95)

5. Paintable Wallpaper. Ok I said it.  But this wallpaper from Land of Nod is $30 and can be painted. Just a thought…

6.  Get A Little Martha. I found these kits from Martha Stewart and am using them in my Fall Bellini window…the entire kit is $19.95 and they are so whimsical.

7. Get Personal. Take some of your favorite memories and create a poster size collage. An ofoto 20×30 collage is only $21.99.

8. Add A Splash Of Bright Color.  A new throw pillow is the perfect pow to bring new life to a bed or chair that seems a little boring.  I found this one at Target… shhhhh.

9. Paint It. Get a can of paint, roll up your sleeves and paint one wall, the ceiling or even go crazy with some striping. You will be shocked what a coat of paint can do.

10. Rearrange What You’ve Got.  This one is free and one of my most favorites.  I do this in the showroom to spice things up.  Move around furniture or artwork to give the room new life.

Hi Michelle: I love your ideas. We do share one love and that is rearranging the stuff I already have. It creates a new look without spending a dime!

Contrary to what a lot of parents think, a room can look fashionable and stylish without really shelling out big bucks. All that's needed is a bit of creativity and the patience to scour for cheap or bargain accessories and materials. There are so many things out there that are inexpensive but can make a big difference by adding spice to an otherwise boring room. You will be surprised!

Agreed, the ceiling does look like a lot of fun.
