Clutter-Free Kids’ Rooms – An Organized Home In 30 Days

How did you do with today’s organizing task?

I am kind of embarrassed to post my photos, because I feel like the worst parent ever. Our kids’ rooms are so BLAH and boring. We’ve lived in this house for 8 months now and we still don’t have anything up on the walls (except in one spot), nor do we have much of the furniture we planned to purchase when we moved in.

I blame laziness. I also blame not wanting to shop with children. So – one day, it will be done – but today is not that day.

Here was Elliott’s room before:

Blue Boys Room Before

Messy Boys Room

Boys Room Before

Big Boy Bed

And here it is after – not much different, just clean and clutter-free:

Boys Room

Blue Boys Room

Boys Closet

Blank Canvas

Look at that huge wall just screaming for some artwork!

Then, I moved on to Kaylee’s room. This is what her room looked like before (I have no clue why the colours are so terrible in these before photos!):


Buddy says hi!

Girls Room Before

Girls Messy Room

Nursery Room

This is what her room looks like now (again, not much different, just cleaner):

Yellow Girls Room

Girls Room


Change Table Dresser

Nursery Toys

I’m glad I did this task today because now I know exactly what I need to buy/make for these rooms. I have a list of furniture and decor that we need and am going to be watching closely for sales on those items – and then I’m going to pounce!

    Aw, you shouldn’t feel too bad Cassie! They are beautifully painted and prime for decor! Way better than cluttered and needing repairs! Good luck with the prettying up over the next few months 🙂

    Did you make Elliots bed frame? I saw directions to make a bedframe just like this and I love it!

    No kidding… I think I need the extreme version of your decluttering advice… I wish my house looked like your before pictures, but in actual fact I think I’d need a dump truck to get that far… you are like an organization super hero.

    Your before pictures in your daughter’s room are a funny colour because the sunlight is being flitered by the curtains. In the after pics your curtains are open and the colours are normal.

    I love the owl in Kaylee’s room:) Elliott’s room is such a gorgeous shade of blue.
