Painting Kid’s Rooms As Easy As 1-2-3

Painting Kid’s Rooms As Easy As 1-2-3

While we used these in a girl’s room, they work great for any room of the house. Just use subtler colors if you prefer the desired effect of a more grown-up space.

  1. Measure off where you prefer each colored stripe begins and ends. Mark with short pencil ticks.
  2. In line with your penciled-in markings, run painter’s tape around the room in one long strip, handing it off to the next person, and so on. This is surprisingly simple with a couple people and a stool to stand on.
  3. Fill in the untaped areas with paint! Kids love the pride of helping with this part, and it’s as easy as coloring within the lines.

Make your own dots

While you can purchase decals for your polka dots, our choice was to make custom ones.

  1. Gather small round covers from cookware and storage containers.
  2. Trace around them with a pencil onto your wall in whatever pattern you wish.
  3. Use stiff, clean-edged brushes and inexpensive craft paint or leftover wall paint in your choice of colors to fill in the dots!


AccessorizeEvery kid’s room needs a corkboard or two.

  1. Choose a standard corkboard.
  2. Paint it with leftover wall paint.
  3. Hook wide ribbon through the board’s hooks that were meant for the nails. Instead, add your nail a foot or so higher where it will be covered with the decorative ribbon.
