Paint Can! Children's Rooms: Patterns & Projects for Colorful, Creative Spaces

Front Cover
Sterling Publishing Company, Inc., 2008 - Crafts & Hobbies - 138 pages
The irrepressible Sunny Goode explores how decorative painting can work for children’s rooms—with happy results that will delight any kid. She’s created imaginative, fun rooms for little babies, for playing and growing in (ages 4–8), and for thinking and dreaming (designed for 9–12 year-olds). These are bright, safe, and personal spaces of color and lightness. Goode shows how to embellish a nursery with marching elephants or cheerful dots, wrap a girl’s room in bands of vivid color, and create a “creature feature” pattern with blue alligators. An introduction discusses paint basics, and illustrated “You Can Do It!” sections interspersed throughout present important techniques.
