Budget Friendly Pirate Room


Kristin from Simply Klassic Home pulled together a great pirate room for her son, Cooper, for under $150! Kristin says, “The name of the game lately for my house is, ‘Use What You’ve Got!’ In this room there is some major re-purposing going on!” From old curtain rods to hand-me-down night stands, Kristin used creativity to make a room that her son adores. Why a pirate room? Well it all started with a great set of pirate sheets that Kristin picked up at Marshalls. The walls are a light blue called Little Dipper from Behr.


One pirate ship mast and sail? Not a problem with a drop cloth and 2 curtain rods! Kristin says, “The mast was half of a 9×12 dropcloth I had on hand. I just cut strips, knotted the ends and hung them on one of the curtain rods from the previous room design.”

Kristin painted a treasure map on the nightstand and added a small amount of rope to the lamp for a nautical feel.

The bear’s name? Arghh!  :)

 I love the idea of reusing and repurposing as your children grow. Great work, Kristin!
