Last week I was able to go through my 9 year old daughter’s room with a giant garbage bag and a will to organize, and we finally get it clean and tidy. She’s a bit of a pack rat, so lots of things had accumulated in her room and it was time to do a giant clean and get some better organizational systems in her bedroom. Here are some of the improvements we made to Little C’s bedroom and some ideas on beautiful yet practical organization systems for kids bedrooms!
If you want to see the “before” of her room, check out the video at the end of this post. Here’s how it looks after we cleaned and organized it.
One thing her room lacked was a good place for all of the books she’s starting to collect. I took an inexpensive cube shelf and put some wallpaper onto the back to give it some extra pizzazz.
To help tie the wallpaper in (this one’s from Anthropologie), I also put some of it on her headboard. I love the look!
Another spot for the wallpaper? I lined the drawers of a plastic organizer tower with it. This is a great little spot for lego and small toys that tend to look messy.
The corner of Little C’s bedroom by her door is a great spot for all sorts of items. We have an art board that I made from a picture frame, lace trim and clothespins, and I also used the same lace fabric to make a simple hammock for her stuffed animals. I tied the ends of a large rectangular piece of fabric to some Command Hooks, and then secured it to the wall. A wooden cubby I found a few years ago hold more toys and accessories.
We also updated C’s light fixture with a capiz shell one we found at the Habitat for Humanity Restore. It was a great price, and I love how it looks in this space!
