How to: Create a royal bedroom for your little prince or princess

Thanks to Disney — and Grandma — your kid already thinks she’s a little princess. And as the world eagerly awaits Prince William and Duchess Kate’s new royal baby, there’s never been a better time to add a bit of pomp and fancy to your child’s bedroom.

Here are the best way to add a touch of regality, but without blowing the royal treasury:

1. Think pink and purple — whatever colors make your child feel fancy. Start with the bed. Whether it’s a new bedding set, a crown-shaped throw pillow, a dreamy pink or white canopy, accessories can go a long way. And the bed is the center of the room, so play up the theme here.

We love this round pink lace “mosquito net” bed canopy from Tmart, and for only $8.62, this small purchase can go a long way to transform a room. Use this coupon for free shipping, plus 1.5 percent Cash Back.

NE-Kids-School-House-Twin-Princess-Low-Loft-Bed-with-Slide2. Go big with this full-blown loft castle from Wayfair — or at least let it inspire you to make your own version.

Use this coupon for free two-day delivery from Wayfair, plus 3 percent Cash Back from

Round off the room with his very own blue and red royal throne, $149.99, from Sears.

4. Add a vanity set, like this Levels of Discovery royal vanity set at Walmart, with a matching chair, mirror and vanity with a drawer ($234.95).

Money-saving tip: Save on shipping by ordering it for free to your nearest Walmart store — and order through and get 2.5 percent Cash Back.

If your princess isn’t much for primping (or you are working with limited space in her room), opt for the princess rocking chair with padded seating instead ($124.95 at Target). Or order a personalized rocking chair; this one allows you to add your child’s name and photo — and it’s much cheaper. This mini-sized chair is best for kids up to age 3.
