There comes a time in every child's life when they outgrow the little kid room you always thought was so cute. When our kids reached this milestone, however, we did not have a budget that allowed them to just pick out all their favorite things from a PB Teen catalog. But by using simple DIY projects, organizing, and buying some key items, we were able to upgrade them into affordable young adult rooms, spending just about $150-$200 each (and that included new flooring!).
Here are 5 tips we used to make it easier:
1. Consult with your teen...or not.
2. Clean out the clutter.
3. Eliminate what isn't working in the room.
4. Freshen with paint.
5. Provide some "grown up" accessories.
