Decorate your child's bedroom with a cowboy and horse theme if you enjoy the Old West, ranching or western lifestyle; or if your little guy dreams of growing up to be a rancher or rodeo cowboy. The room can become his open range or depict the rustic lodging of cowboys from yesteryear. Include colours and cowboy elements in the room whether you decide to give your child's bedroom a luxurious or rustic feel.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Paint the room in earth tones to create a natural western landscape. Put up a border that depicts horses, lassos and cowboy hats or use a real rope as a border. Paint an entire mural on one wall with rolling hills, grazing horses and blue skies or the main street in an old town with a blacksmith, general store and sheriff's station.

  2. 2

    Use wood furniture in natural or rustic tones, as long as the furniture is smooth and doesn't have splinters. Glue a rope onto the headboard and spell out your child's name or make a border around the headboard. Do the same for the dresser and nightstand.

  3. 3

    Make the bed with bedding that has images of horses or a faux leather appearance. Toss pillows in the shape of stars, horses, boots or spurs on the bed for comfort and decoration.

  4. 4

    Hang curtains with a black-and-white pony pattern, images of boots and cowboy hats, horses or bandannas if your walls are a solid colour. Use solid panels in complementary colours if the walls contain a mural or busy pattern.

  5. 5

    Place a play rug in the centre of the room that depicts a farm or ranch for your child to play with her small horse and cowboy toys. The rug can double as a decorative accessory and activity centre.

  6. 6

    Set up decorative accessories that your child can utilise. For example, set up his rocking horse in the centre of the room where it serves as a focal point and favourite toy. Put your child's outgrown cowboy boots and old cowboy hats on a shelf. Set out any pictures of your child riding a real horse or pony. Arrange cowboy hats or old baskets on lower shelves to organise and hold toys. Utilise a rustic-looking chest to hold larger toys. Set up a lamp on your child's nightstand that looks like an old pair of cowboy boots.
