Your little slugger can have that sports theme bedroom he’s always dreamed of without you having to break the bank. Here are some simple suggestions for creating a fun and athletic looking space for your little sports fan.
Use your son’s personal sports equipment like; hats, mitts, bats, jerseys and hang them all over the room on various types of hooks. You can purchase different size hooks at any hardware store. Get bigger ones for the heavier items and smaller hooks for the light weight things like baseball caps and gloves. Be strategic about your equipment placement because remember… you’re not just hanging sports items to keep them organized, you’re creating an entire bedroom decor in a cool sports theme, and saving money by simply using things you already have.
Spruce up the bed’s headboard by getting a cheap sports theme poster or even printing a sports picture off the Internet. If you have an old frame laying around the house you could frame the picture to make it look even more impressive.
If you have a little room in your budget you can also get some fun accessories that represent you son’s favorite sports team. For example, if your little dude likes the NY Yankees, you could purchase a NY Yankees Table Lamp and NY Yankees Toy Chest, to add even more spunk to the space. Since every child’s room needs lighting and storage space for toys, why not get items that show off your son’s favorite team.
Remember, creating a cool, hip bedroom for your child doesn’t have to be expensive if you think out of the box and decorate with items you already own. Being creative can save you a lot of cash while also helping you to create a one-of-a-kind room for your child!
