Redecorating Your Child’s Bedroom With Surfboard Decor

If your kid is sick of his or her room looking like everyone else’s with the same old cartoon characters or superheroes, then it is time for a whole new look. Add some fun to their life by turning their room into something their friends will envy with beach and surfboard decor.

When you think of the beach you think of surfing, so what is more natural than a few real surfboards to use in the transformation? Surf shops and flea markets usually have some used ones lying around at a cheap cost to you. Turn one into a wall shelf with a few brackets installed in the wall. Take another and turn it into a tabletop for a desk. If you have a surfer kid, this is a perfect opportunity to hang their own on the wall off season.

With some blue and white paint, you can turn those plain walls into crashing waves. Start with a nice blue on the walls and then using a paintbrush and the white paint, create the waves with big sweeping strokes of the brush. You could even overlap it to go onto the ceiling. If painting is not your strong point, using the rag painting method can give a similar effect with some smaller waves. Some white curtains that are airy and light will complement the colors of the walls.

If you have some beach towels lying around, they are not only the perfect touch but can add the right amount of color. Hang these on the walls or even use one to reupholster a small chair or desk chair in your kid’s room.

For a great old school surf board decor vibe, look for some signs to hang on the walls, maybe even the door. Online or in the local surf shops you’ll be able to find a lot of vintage beach signs if your child prefers those to the newer styles today. If your kid loves posters, a poster or two of a surfing scene or the beach will dress up the walls too.

A few novelty items can also add to the fun and accent the theme. Take a look at some surfboard wall hooks for their coats and bags, surfboard clocks are also very cool for a kid, even surfboard print light switch plates to put up can be found. There are a variety of novelty items that you can allow your child to choose from to add his own touch.

And nothing pulls a room completely together like the right bedding. Today, bedding is all about design and you’ll find a variety of different choices when it comes to surfing and the beach. There will be flashy colorful ocean scenes to subtle and calming beach scenes to choose from.
