Be careful of little ears, they hear everything! This is how a plain old chat between two adults snowballed into an agreement to paint the kids' dream bedrooms.
Jacinthe and her husband had just mentioned how neutral and boring their house looked... all different shades of grey... inside and out! Before they knew it, the kids had heard them and were full of ideas. Their imagination ran wild on what their bedrooms would look like. They were so happy to be getting colour in their rooms that Jacinthe and her husband just had to roll with it. And what a great idea that was!
They started with Little Miss 6 as when she makes up her mind, it doesn't change again. Jacinthe suspected it was going to include a rainbow as she has been OBSESSED with them since she was two. They were thinking of a rainbow wall sticker or something easy like that but SURPRISE! One quick look at Pinterest and it was impossible to sway her mind... she had her heart set on a 'never ending rainbow' bedroom.
After wallpaper peeling, a bit of prep work, lots of measuring and re-measuring, chalk lines and five rolls of masking tape, the rainbow took shape in colours of Resene Roadster, Resene Grenadier, Resene Turbo, Resene Japanese Laurel, Resene Optimist and Resene Daisy Bush. It took quite a few hours but it was not hard. It was made easy by Resene ColorShop staff who recommended some great quality masking tape that came off cleanly (without shredding the walls or ripping off the fresh paint) and made some fantastic straight lines with no 'bleed'.
Needless to say, there is now a very happy girl, who has her little piece of heaven right at home. She sleeps wrapped in her rainbow and feels really calm there.
Now on to Little Miss 4's rock star bedroom!
