Toddler's Room Renovation

Lil Community: A Toddler Room Update

This post was submitted by member Perkinswood in CasaSugar's community.

Over the weekend I updated our almost 2-year-old son Seth's room so that it would be more functional for him. It was definitely in bad shape. No space to play, curtains that were way too short and boring. It basically felt like a box with a ton of wood furniture in it.

There really wasn't a budget to do anything extravagant, but changes needed to be made. So I got rid of a dresser, made curtains from a flat sheet, stole storage from our own closet for better and more accessible toy storage, added some free art, and painted a wall with chalkboard paint we made at home.

Keep reading to see how the transformation was made!

Thanks for the tip! We are definitely going to update the hardware, go a little wider and higher when we hang them again, and add some curtain rings down the line, which I know will help improve the slimness of the panels a bit. I just started sewing so I doubt the stitches will last long in a 2 year old little boys room, haha. I'm just so happy that they aren't the blue ones we had before that I don't care if they look cheap.

Nice job on a budget. Seth is a lucky child to have a Mom to create a special room for him. If you have anymore sheet fabric, fuller panels will have less of an "on a budget" look. If you feel up to it, a contrast band on the edge of the panels would add a richer custom look. Good job. Enjoy the room & your son. Wishing you a brightly colored day! Mary Nolte
