The thought of him in a toddler bed is just way too much freedom for my busy body!! I've been a bit bored with his room lately and decided to make some changes.
Here's a before shot of his room:
And here's Kolt's new & improved bedroom....
The biggest change we made is adding a fresh coat of paint. It's the most gorgeous and soothing shade of taupey brown-Behr Antiqued Leather. It's so nice to have some color on his walls-and best of all, the gallon of paint was just $20!! Behr just may be my new fave paint brand!!
During my Goodwilling trips, I've scored a few more key pieces that were used in his makeover. First up-a Pottery Barn star quilt that I found for just $3. It was marked $5.99, plus it was another 50% off. Gotta love Super Saturdays!! This quilt would've retailed for well over $50 so this was a major score.
I also picked up the new sheets during a Super Saturday shopping spree. The entire brand new 4-piece Circo toddler bedding set was just $7.50!! I wasn't crazy about the comforter that came in the set, but the sheets alone were worth the purchase price!!
I'm all for decorating on the cheap-especially in kid's rooms.
For starters, I anchored the wall behind his crib Added some DIY canvas art frames!! Such an easy peasy way to dress up your walls. Also, spray painted an old frame that I had and added a star for an extra special touch.
To anchor the wall behind his crib, I used a star picture that was hanging in our Americana Guest room. I also re-used letters to spell out his name. Love the way it looks.
|Used cardboard letters and a star emblem purchased at Hobby Lobby to spell out his name!|

|I reused frames and just created easy DIY art using Publisher. You can probably use Word too.|
|Old Smokey loves his cozy updated space!|
|Easy DIY art inserted into frames!|

|Wasn't quite ready to get rid of his crib mobile-so I hung it in his closet!|
Don't you just love decorating? Especially decorating on the cheap!? This makeover rang in at less than $50 since I repurposed a lot of items from other rooms, shopped Goodwill and was able to use just a gallon of paint!!
I'd love to hear your thoughts! Thanks for popping by!
