Kid’s Room Makeover & DIY Decor Ideas

This year we gifted our son a room of his own where he could play, read and do his online classes. We had this room which we called a ‘study’ but we hardly used it. So, we thought of giving it a makeover. In this post, I will share how we managed to do our Kid’s Room Makeover on a Budget. And, along with that, I will also share a few DIY Decor Ideas with you all.

Hello friends! How are you all doing? The new month is here and with that, we enter the last quarter of this year. I am quite excited as this is my husband’s birthday month too and looking forward to a month full of festivities and cheer. Just hoping that the Corona stays away now and lets us enjoy without any fear.

I hope you are enjoying reading our posts. Thanks for all your love!

The Joy of Decorating the House

We live in a rented apartment and that takes away the fun of decorating the house the way we want to. There are so many restrictions that I lose interest to do anything exciting with the home decor. Also, we never know when we may have to move to another place so really can’t invest a lot in it. But I love doing makeovers and it’s not easy to keep away from the joy I get when I decorate my house. It’s the personal touch we add to the house that makes it more like a home, isn’t it?

So, I look for ideas where I can give a new and refreshing look to the dull area by just making a few changes and without investing a lot of money.

A couple of years back I wrote about how we gave our boring balcony a makeover and turned it into an interesting balcony garden. You may watch the video below. And, for reading the post, click here!

Kid’s Room Makeover on a Budget

Last year when the Kindergarten online classes began in April, we tried to make the process of homeschooling easy for our son, Nemit. We wanted him to do his class in the study room but he was not comfortable there and kept running out of the room. So, we shifted Nemit’s study table in the living room, he instantly adjusted to the new setting. Hence, we converted a part of our living area into a homeschool classroom.

This year, Nemit got promoted to Grade 1 and we wanted to do something special for him. So, we decided to give our study room a makeover and convert it into a study + playroom solely for our little one. The room was anyhow turning into a storeroom and was too dull and cluttered and badly needed a makeover.

This is how the room looked before the makeover. It was cluttered and untidy and looked dull and dark due to all the mess around.

Challenges for Kid’s Room Makeover

  1. Make space
  2. Declutter
  3. Reuse & Repurpose

A kid’s room without any space makes no sense to me. But, clearly, decluttering was a challenge. Another challenge was the budget, we had to keep it low so we had to repurpose and reuse the things we already had with us.

Things to do

We made a to-do list before starting the makeover. It gave us an idea of what all needs to be done and how much time we will need.

  1. Declutter the Room
  2. Repurpose and Reuse the Baby Cot
  3. Make space for play area
  4. Re-arrange the Art & Craft Supply
  5. Find a Rack for Toy Storage
  6. Make a Reading Nook/Corner
  7. Place the Study Table & Whiteboard
  8. Place a Rug (the only thing we bought)

You may check out this post where I shared how we Repurposed the Baby Cot and made it into a Reading Nook for our son. I have also shared how we made a DIY Bookshelf out of old Cardboard boxes.

In this post, I have shared how we managed to do our Kid's Room Makeover on a Budget. And, along with that, I also shared a few DIY Decor Ideas.


We also repurposed our old shoe rack and used it for toy storage. We already had colourful storage boxes, just needed a place to keep them safe and easily accessible.

I tried another DIY idea for the photo frames that were already there in the room. I wanted to change a few pictures to make it look more suitable for a kid’s room.

So, I downloaded some free printables from Pinterest, took the printout on the A4 sheet, and put those in the photo frames. I also tried creating one myself using Canva, it looked really good.

We just bought a new rug for the room from Amazon. I’ll put links for the rug, photo frames, and wall shelves at the end of the post.

Here, I am attaching the video of the room makeover below. You will also find all the details of the DIYs we did for the room in the video. Check it out-

If we look carefully we can find so many ways to reuse and repurpose things instead of just throwing them away. I hope you liked the kid’s room makeover and DIY decor ideas. That’s all for today!

See you next time. Take care.

    This is awesome Neha. I also did some arrangements for Vibhu few months back. I got one white board, some posters, table charts and a study table. He now likes his study cum play room which used to a very boring study room before..

      Oh great, Shipra. Kids need a lively space, anything dull and boring puts them off easily.
