Creating the perfect kid's room can be expensive. Why not save money and make your child’s room unique with DIY projects?

If your youngster’s room is looking a bit, shall we say “bleh,” it’s time to do something about it. Raising a kid might be full of surprises, but it’ll be no surprise that your kid will be delighted with these DIYs that turn boring into brilliant. 

Watch out room, here we come.

1. Stylish Storage

Keep clutter to a minimum with toys tucked away in
 cute, patterned storage bins that complement the
 room's decor.

2. Reading Nook

Make reading a fun activity that your child looks forward to and give them a cozy spot to enjoy their books. Designate a reading corner, construct a teepee and provide plush cushions and their favorite stuffed animals.

3. Chalkboard Paint Wall

Does your child love to draw? Let their imagination soar by painting one of their walls with chalkboard paint.

4. Pallet Shoe Organizer

Organize your kid’s shoes with this cute idea. Simply set a pallet on its end, screw it into the wall, and tuck your child’s shoes inside.

5. Mini Art Gallery

 from Project Nursery. Create a mini gallery of
 framed photos, artwork, mirrors, and wooden
 words or letters in various colors to punch up a
 plain room. Keep clutter to a minimum with toys
 tucked away in cute, patterned storage bins that
 complement the room's decor.

6. Make bed with old pallets
