Cactus Theme Toddler Girl Bedroom

Updated: Aug 9, 2019

Fun ideas for a cute toddler bedroom on a budget with DIY's!

Here's a little dive into what I built, used, and did for a toddler girl bedroom/playroom with very little expenses!

Bed & Bedding

The bed frame is very durable, doesn't need a box spring and super easy to assemble (I assembled it by myself at 8 months pregnant :)

Bed : Amazon - click here for the same one

Mattress : Amazon - click here for the same one

Sheets : Amazon - click here for the twin set

Comforter : Rod's True Western Living - link to set here

Throw pillows are from Hobby Lobby and the one at the other end of the bed can be found here

Pink Pillow : link here

Night Stand

I had an old night stand and purchased this stencil from Amazon for a couple dollars and used the paint leftover from the walls to give it a little more character.

The Feature Wall

This was thin faux ship lap we got here at Lowe's and installed ourselves very easily with glue and a brad nailer

Cube Storage

This is absolutely perfect to store toys, easy to pull out to take to another room, and comes in so many colors and very affordable

I got the white stand/cube storage here

The cubes were purchased at Target, but there is a similar pack linked here

Wall Art

This is a fun part of the room to make it your own! The top left was a print I found at a flea market in a frame from Hobby Lobby, the "Love Grows Here", Wooden cactus string art picture, and Skull are from Hobby Lobby as well. The Cacti-Succulents is just a print I found at our local "Iowa Gathering" event and I used this picture holder from Amazon to hang it. The wood "O" on the wall is from Michaels.

Great wall decor options:

Pink Cactus Wood Wall Decor

Wild & Free Cactus Decor

Potted Cacti Framed Wall Decor


Another DIY, this was a project I completed for myself in High School and found a new home for it in my girls' bedroom. I took a "Tiffany" box into my local hardware store and had them match the color for a pint of paint. Painted an order dresser that was given to me, waited until it was dry and sanded the edges/top to give it a worn look.

DIY Wall Art

This was made out of leftover pieces from the "ship lap" feature wall, leftover paint from the walls (middle) and leftover paint from the dresser (cannot believe I kept that for all these years!)

8 pieces of the wood cut to the same size with a few angle cuts to cut out the shapes before I painted those and placed it all back together.

The "Princess Castle"

The princess castle as my girls call it, was a gift from their uncle who strives to be the "coolest uncle that gives the coolest presents", I don't have the link to this exact one because it is no longer available but there is a very cute one linked here

I also used this garland above the bedroom window, it fits perfectly on my curtain rod!
