Every little girl wants the perfect room to invite home (aff) friends and to show off. Even if you're not someone with an endless budget or vast DIY skills, you can get that perfect room for your little girl. Creating a gorgeous room for your little girl amounts to using your imagination. You can take a look at what's already around the house, what you want to do and then sort out a plan for making something from nothing.
Bartering, repurposing, and using it again are just a few of the ways that you can get a superb room for your little girl without breaking the bank.
Decorating on a shoestring budget is possible with any room in your house, but it becomes so much easier when children are involved in the process. Just few ideas that will take your little girls room from flat to fantastic are listed below.
Bear in mind that the Dora, or other characters aren't going to last long. Using them is great in a nursery, but two years from now, your toddler or first grader isn't going to want a Dora room. Use things that will walk them from nursery to preteen years if you want to save some money on your decorating budget. That's not to say they won't want it freshened up a little, but it's going to last a little longer if you plan ahead to the days when Thomas or Dora are no longer what they want to wake up to.
Get creative with leftover paints. You don't need enough to paint the whole wall. Some of the most amazing rooms for little girls are white based and then offer brilliantly colored bold stripes or polka dots. Painting or stenciling flowers on a wall in random areas adds touches of bright color and gives you a lot of leeway to add different furnishings.
Brilliant blues and pinks on a white background will give you room to be able to use nearly any color to the beds and pillows to echo or pick up that wall image.
Let your child help you to create artwork for the room. Frame some of their own artwork to make the room creation more fun and the room really their own.
Use older quilts or blankets that they've enjoyed or liked and make throws from them, or get some simple fleece and tie off fringe on the bottom to make a brilliantly colored spread for the bed that is fun and inexpensive.
Likewise you can have some of your child's older clothing and use that to make a blanket for them, expanding it by rows as your child grows.
Artwork can include something as simple as a picture of a sunflower or something as elaborate as a wall mural. Stencils are always a hit. Stenciling large flowers around the walls, or stenciling a border of castles or another thing that your child is into at the moment will give them a sense that this is their room and inspire a little more pride in it.
Redecorating a room for your little girl can be done beautifully as well as cost effectively. Use your imagination and let it run wild. Planning with your little girl makes it a family project and not a chore and helps you to learn more about the little girl you're raising.
