My children spend a lot of time in their bedroom, reading books, playing games, dressing up. So I made sure it was a space that was all their own, with accesories that make it comfortable and fun. If you're looking to remodel or update your kid's room, start with some great accessories... I have a few ideas right here...

For some reason, most parents don't use the walls of their child's bedroom. Why not? That space is perfect for all sorts of things, like art, murals, and memo boards... or these super-cute and convenient butterfly chalkboards! Just peel and stick, and there you go! If you don't care for butterflies, choose from planes and clouds or race-cars, too...

Here's another great accessory for your kid's room that doesn't take up any floor space — these cool little mirrors stick right on the wall! Choose from swooping birds or sweet butterflies.
