My husband and I are huge outdoor fans and wanted to decorate our sons room in realtree camo. After searching high and low, there wasn't really anything already made out there to help decorate his room! So, I got to work creating some fun decor items to fit a perfect hunting themed room! One major issue on this redecorating ordeal was to stay very budget conscious! Here are a few tips to make your little man his own hunter’s paradise, afford-ably!

1. I put his old bunk bed on our local free classified list- sold it same day for $300!

2. Looked on that same classifieds list for log furniture, found an amazing deal! We got his log bed w/ mattress, log dresser, and a huge log chair (not pictured it wouldn't fit in his room so we use it outside to decorate the patio) all for $500 which means I only paid $200 for all new furniture for his room SCORE!

3. Found his new realtree bedding set on ebay brand new for $55 came with everything we needed.

4. Picked paint to match his bedding $45 we used a matte finish in glidden safari green and leather brown.

5. My husband and I were browsing around Wal-Mart one day in the hunting area and found all these huge hunting blinds for $5! We bought them with the intentions of letting our son make forts with them. But then I had this great idea, I re-purposed them in into a valance for his window and a canopy for his bed!

6. Right after Christmas is a super time to find decor that will work for outdoor themes! We went to the craft store after Christmas and found these long pine cone evergreen vines (see pics I used them for valance and canopy) marked 75% off so I paid $2 ea! A cute potted evergreen plant for his dresser $5, a moose stocking holder $2 (looks cute as decor) Also got a pic on ebay of an outdoor scene for his wall and framed it in barn wood. A cute idea for this would also be to look for a frame that looks like a window OR find an old window and put the outdoor scene behind it so it looks like you are looking out the window into the great outdoors. That was my original idea but I couldn't find a window to use and I'm not very patient and wanted it done now so we went with the plain barn wood  frame route.

7. Found a great lamp at hobby lobby for 50% off! And 5 metal wall signs with different hunting sayings on them.

8. Last but not least (it only took me a year) I finished my son's wall letters in realtree hardwoods camo and diamond plate! Probably the coolest thing on his walls! You know what they say, family usually comes last when it comes to taking care of things around the house that you do for a living! You can purchase  Realtree Camo Wall Letters  along with many other brands and styles of camo like Mossy Oak, Max 4 HD Camo, Advantage Timber, Pink Real Tree Camo, and lots of others, on my website We also recently added Realtree Camo Ceiling Fan Blades that look absolutely amazing with this theme! So all in all it cost me about $350 to totally redo my sons room, not too shabby I'd say!
