If you rent your current home and the landlord doesn’t allow you to paint the walls, that doesn’t mean you can’t decorate your kids room. It means you need to think of other ways to decorate without painting walls and with things that can be easily removable once you are ready to move to your next home.

That was what our good friends Yusuke and Ayako did for Shuma and Salasa’s room. They were kind enough to let me share with you their AWESOME kid’s room.  DIY and medium budget, what else can you ask for?

Yusuke created  a fantastic decor with unique materials and lots of creativity and love. The tree, the mushroom bottoms and some of the treetops are  shapes cut out from painted cork board. Painted cork board! You can pin pictures, notes and school work on them.  Brilliant.

The rest of the treetops, bird, mushroom caps and butterflies are made out of vinyl. Apparently, vinyl is a little expensive, so this one was the major expense.

He also painted two Ikea dressers with a caterpillar (inspired by Eric Carle) and flowers.

Amazing, right? It is so cute! My favorite idea -that I will steal for sure ;)- is the cork trees… imagine the possibilities! What about you? Do you have any other ideas to decorate a kid’s room in a rented home?
