10 Tips to Going from a Nursery to a Kid's Room


Lose the Baby Clutter

While you work to transform the nursery into a kid's room for your youngster, don't make the mistake of leaving baby accessories lying around. You may need those items again later, but for the time being, pack them up and put them out of sight in the garage, basement or attic. Your child is moving on to bigger things, so help him make the transition by getting the baby artifacts out of the way.
