Annie Sloan: Transform Your Child’s Bedroom Into A Wonderland
Transform your child’s bedroom into a whimsical wonderland with Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan.
“Young minds benefit hugely from the use of colour. Stimulate their imaginations with playful, inventive interiors based around the things they love. Create a fantastical scene inspired by ancient history, fairy-tales, or world travel to pique their interest and sow the seeds for a lifelong passion,” says Annie. “Unexpected side effects can include instilling in your child a strong sense of pride in their own environment and, in some rare instances, a desire to keep bedrooms tidy. Disclaimer: NO paint colour has been proven 100% effective in this area!” finishes Annie.
MDF is the ideal material to transform kid’s bedrooms. Upgrade basic bunkbeds with a coat of Chalk Paint or if you’re a proficient DIYer, create a gateway to a far-off fantasy land or the entrance to a magical castle with a piece of MDF cut to size at your local hardware shop, painted in a contrasting shade to the walls so it really pops
Inject some fun with fabrics – a curtain to pull across a bed creates an instant secret hideaway, while piles of cosy cushions are great for snuggling up and den-building
Forget the gender-typical colour diktats – teach them young that every colour is for everyone!
Available in 44 colours which can be mixed to create your own palette, Chalk Paint can be applied to almost any surface without any priming or sanding. Water-based, odour-free and low in volatile compounds, Chalk Paint has been independently tested and certified as toy-safe according to European regulations.
