My loverly friends and fam who followed me when this was more just a family blog, this will look familiar. Just before I had our third baby, almost a year ago ( I can't believe it), we moved our two older boys into a room together.
After a lot of debating back and forth with myself, I landed on the superhero theme. At the time Pottery Barn had some ah-mazing stuff, but alas my budget just couldn't swing it. So I had to think outside of the box.
These are some of the decorations I came up with--
Super hero postcards from USPS for a whole $10, put inside these cheap IKEA picture frames. Instant wall art.
Isn't Superman dreamy? Anyone remember Dean Cain?
I scavenged for cheap superhero t-shirts to make into pillows. Sewing with jersey is never fun, but with a little patience and a little looking the other way when your seams aren't perfect, you will have a perfect throw pillow for your little superhero's bed.
Throwing this in just for kicks and giggles...
I found these tins at a flea market and grabbed 'em quick. The dresser below was a Kmart special that we painted red. Easy peasy.
I have learned that when you are decorating a room on a budget that once you have your theme or colors, you just have to be on the look our for anything that can be used and then get creative.
