See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
My son is 5 years old. He has this insane obsession with The Titanic. Here we are 8 months later, he's still obsessed! Trust me when I say you will never meet a child with as much knowledge about the Titanic as this kid. He can tell you that the last person off the boat, how many people survived, how many passengers on the boat, how many passangers the life boats could hold, which life boat fell into the water, what every room on the Titanic was used for, where each room was located, the exact spot the titanic cracked in half -- LOL okay, you get, I'm bragging. He's just so smart.
Anyways, I told him that when we move if he still wanted a Titanic bedroom, he could have it. Well open mouth insert foot - how the hell do you decorate a room in a Titanic theme. Well - it's really hard and google and pinterest haven't been very much help.
So here's what I got
Painting the walls red, black and white like the Titanic. Painting portal windows on the wall. Painting replicas of the Titanic life preservers on the walls
I had some pictures printed and framed to put on the walls
Then I decided that I needed to incorporate boats in general if I was going to make this room happen on a budget
So I ordered these anchor shaped coat hooks on amazon - So cute.
I also ordered a boat steering wheel that you mount to the wall and some fishing net to hang in the corner with all his stuffed animals
I am looking for aquatic animal window decals for the windows
So ladies - any Titanic decorating ideas? or Boat decorating ideas?
I cannot afford to replace furniture, when his is in great shape - so no new bed, dresser, bedside tables or book shelves although I'm contemplating having my dad ( awesome artist and handy man ) help me sand everything down and paint it all black to match the color scheme. It's oak right now. He already has red bedding and red storage containers ( thank God for the Lightening McQueen stage lol )
We're trying to do this on 200 dollars or less
