30 DIY and Craft decorating ideas for a playroom or kid’s bedroom

Ah, we made it through another week, time for the weekend! If you are like me, my life revolves around my kids and our weekend are no different. I try to sneak in some DIYing, grocery shopping, you know… adult and non-fun things. But, kids are the best excuse ever to have fun. They are the life of any party, so this post is all about them. I am sharing 30 DIY and Craft decorating ideas for a playroom or kid’s bedroom today. Thanks to some amazing blogging friends of mine who let me in on their very best projects they have created for their kids’s rooms.

30 DIY & craft ideas for a playroom or kids bedroom.

I shared Nora’s bedroom yesterday so I am thinking in bright colors, kids toys and whimsy decor. I felt this round-up would be fitting for this theme. I redid Caleb and Gavin’s room last year and now my kids officially have the best rooms in our house. I mean, my kids rooms are seriously tricked out with decorations, cozy spaces, well thought out play spaces and so much organization. I am not saying the rest of my home is lacking, but my children’s’ bedrooms have gotten a lot of the love.

My kids are not alone in this “problem”, judging by my blogging friends and their amazing ideas. I sometimes wonder how the child of a home decor blogger feels, the stories they could tell about growing up with a Mom who is full force into decorating their home. Yes we have some hectic weekends of getting projects done, and I walk around my house taking a lot of pictures. But my kids also have two of the coolest rooms, and a really great space for them to be creative in the sun room, so it all evens itself out in the end.

These fellow lovers of DIY and decorating blew me away with their projects. Seriously, I have a few new ideas I am going to give a try now. I hope you peruse all of these 30 DIY and Craft decorating ideas for a playroom or kid’s bedroom, you can click on the image to be taken to the full post and tutorial. So many ideas, so little time… money… and space in my home to fit them all!

  5. I really like the crayon holder idea. Looks like a repurposed votive candle holder!

  6. Storage is always a huge problem in my house! I love all of these ideas. Even though my kids are older, they’ve still got tons of stuff. Where do you put 1000 45 records? 🙂 That is my son’s issue!

  7. I like the under the bed storage bin. I want one of those, but I currently don’t have a bed frame yet. I think that is one of the best ways to store things out of sight!

    I love the Book Ends! Those are so cute and creative. Thanks for sharing all these great ideas!

  14. I’d love to hang an old door on my daughters wall. Let her pull it down when she has homework or anything else she wants to do. Push it back up and out of the way when done!

  15. These are all great ideas. I love anything that saves space and is practical.

  16. People are just so clever with their storage and decorating ideas. The toy box on wheels is just perfect.
