Magnetic Racecar Growth Chart

This DIY project is surprisingly simple. You’ll just need to thrift an old growth chart and buy some magnetic paint. The final product is more than a growth chart – it doubles as a hanging track for your little driver’s favorite metal cars!

Racecar Bed

KidKraft Racecar Toddler Bed

What’s a racecar bedroom without a racecar bed? If you’re transitioning from a nursery to a big kid room, you might consider opting for a toddler bed to make the crib-to-bed transition a little smoother. The KidKraft Racecar Toddler Bed
boasts sturdy construction, bold colors, and of course, a speedy racecar complete with tires and spoiler. The added step at the front of the bed makes it easy for little toddlers to climb in and out of bed on their own, and doubles as a shelf for their favorite toys!

More Racecar Furniture

KidKraft Speedway Play N Store Activity Table

Beds aren’t the only piece of furniture you can find in a racecar theme! You can make sure the theme is present throughout the room with additional pieces of racecar furniture. Our racecar bookshelf
is the perfect way to organize your little racing fan’s books (orrrr all those racecar toys), and it’s designed to perfectly match the KidKraft Racecar Toddler Bed.

Or how about a racecar-shaped activity table with a track for playing and racing and creative storage for even the largest car collections?

Faux Diamond Plate Sheet Metal

Dresser with sheet metal doors

From Artzy Fartzy Creations

Diamond plate sheet metal can give everything from walls to furniture a “toolbox” look to help tie it into the theme. The only downside is working with actual sheet metal is incredibly tough. Fortunately, you can fake the look with diamond plate vinyl decals and wallpaper!

Checkered Patterns

Those black and white checkers are good for more than just flags – it’s the perfect pattern to tie throughout the room. Incorporate it on rugs, curtains, and wall art. Or get super creative, and repurpose wall stickers for checkered ceiling fan blades like this designer!

Decorate with Road Signs

Sure, racecars don’t drive on the road per se, but if you don’t mind expanding your theme a bit, a collage of vintage road signs is the perfect focal point in a car-themed bedroom!

A Racing Track

KidKraft Mega Ramp Racing Set

A kid who wants a racecar bedroom is almost guaranteed to love a racecar track! And the Mega Ramp Racing Set works just as well as a piece of decor as it does as a toy. Wood construction means this piece looks great and can stand up to daily play without significant wear-and-tear.

Upcycle Tires

You’ve probably seen tires upcycled for outdoor planters, but you can repurpose them for indoor decor too – especially in a racecar bedroom! This simple tutorial from Town Fair Tires will show you how you can upcycle an old tire into a perfect on-theme toy display shelf.

Tire Tracks

If actual tires aren't for you, maybe a few tire tracks are! They’ll look great on walls or hard floors, and you can get the look with vinyl decals
or paint and wall stencils.
