Create a Fun Room for Your Kids in One Day

2 Materials
6 Hours

One of my favorite things to do is paint kids’ rooms. Watching them walk into their room for the first time is magical. Painting something as simple as this can have your child jumping for joy.

You don’t have to be artzy to design a fun and colorful wall in your kids’ room. All you need is tape and paint. This was designed for twins, a boy and girl. This is the boys room.Step 1

I randomly applied  1” blue tape (low tack) to this wall. I just ran the tape down the wall and started creating different size blocks until I covered the wall.

Step 2

Selected 3-4 paint colors you want to use. You will only need a quart of each color. Before you get started painting in the blocks, I would suggest adding a splash of paint on each block, so you don’t end up with the same color next to each other. Using 4 or more colors will help avoid this from happening.

Using a roller, start painting in each of the blocks. Once you’re done painting the blocks remove the tape.

This was the little girls room we did. We wanted to make them similar but a little different. So this wall was done in triangles and pastel colors.
