Semigloss paint. Having a chalkboard for kids is really great, but you don’t need to create one with chalkboard paint. I like to use semigloss paint when painting kids’ areas. You can choose any color, and it washes up beautifully. Marker, crayon and chalk all wash off easily when a semigloss paint is used.

Using paint to decorate the kids’ room has plenty of advantages that go beyond the obvious. While the fabulous array of colors and the many hues help in creating a lovely, vibrant setting, the true charm of paint is showcased when you create a change in color scheme. While keeping the walls white and adding colorful decor is attractive, it will not be too long before your kids grow out of the current color phase! Instead, use paint to usher in the color of the season, and you can switch over to a different shade at any time in the future with little fuss.

Entry Area Upon entry to the multipurpose room, the boys are greeted by a grassy-green dresser (picked up at a flea market, sanded and repainted) which holds their day-to-day school, playground and gym clothes. Although it may seem insignificant at first, proper placement of storage furniture can have a huge impact on keeping a kid’s room neat and tidy. With everyday clothes kept right near the entrance, the boys can seamlessly get dressed, then make their way out of the room and off to school. While the dresser keeps their casual clothes neatly stored and out of sight, a pair of wall hooks was installed alongside the architectural bunk bed to keep backpacks off the floor and within arm’s reach.
