Children’s Bedroom DIY
The DIY projects you can make for your child’s room are endless. Bookcases, chests for storage, cubby holes, tepees, alphabet letters, and much more can be seen in kid’s rooms. Instead of paying retail price, these can all be done yourself, with only the cost of materials. Try making a table to play or where your child can do their art projects. All you need are some wall brackets and some pieces of wood cut to however long you wish the table to be. Some can be up to five feet long, with three boards attached to the wall, and two to three more held up by the brackets for the table portion. Here your child can play cars, paint, colour, or whatever their heart desires at their play table.
Another good decorative idea that provides storage are floating shelves. These can be cut to your desired length as well as stained or painted to match your baby’s nursery or child’s bedroom. You will need simple, basic items like the wood pieces you want, stain or paint, sander, sealer, Kreg jig system, screws and a drill. These can be made for fewer than 10 dollars apiece, especially if you already have most of the materials. You can display art, photos, books, or other decorative items off of the floor for an organized and pleasing appearance.
Caution in the Work Area
Completing your DIY projects is an amazing accomplishment. Your home will look beautiful, and you can’t beat the savings. Your plans should have a designated workspace, so tools, materials, and parts or pieces are organized and out of the way from small children and their tiny, curious hands. Watch out for extension cords, and when using power tools, make sure to unplug them before changing any saw blades, drill bits, etc. Safety should always be a priority when tackling DIY projects.
Your child’s room can be a masterpiece. There is a broad range of colour pallets and ideas that you can do on your own to make your child’s room into a welcoming and comfortable space. Try creating floating shelves or bookshelves, or try a wood cut out of the first letter of their name painted to match. The ideas are endless, and doing your projects for their room will satisfy your creativity while creating a space you and your child will love.
