Kid Decor DIYs You Can Get Done in a Weekend

It’s been too long since we had a good “design with kids in mind” post around here.  To make amends, I’ve got three of my all time favorite kid room DIYs.  These projects will add a nice punch of style to any kid space and (the best part) each can be completed in a weekend or less. 


There’s a lot to love about this modern gray nursery featured at Buy Modern Baby (the monotone wall letters for one).  But my favorite element is definitely the DIY dresser.  You all know I’m a big Ikea fan so any project that starts with one of their basic pieces gets a gold star from me.  Go check out the entire space and don’t miss the link to the CB2 dresser that inspired the project.



Making this felt zebra rug won’t be as easy as painting a few squares on a dresser, but it’ll be close thanks to the easy-to-follow tutorial over at The Etsy Blog.  And here’s the best part, the included zebra template is on grid paper so you can customize this rug to the perfect size for your space.


Last but not least is yet another project with an Ikea base (although looking at the finished project you’d never know it).  It will definitely take a little more time, and maybe even a few power tools, but the end result is so worth it!  This DIY upholstered bed at Organized Design (via ohdeedoh) delivers a beautiful custom looking kid bed at a fraction of the price.  Plus I’m really digging the bright and modern fabric.
