Craft - inspired by Resene, from Little Treasures magazine

Creating a beautiful space for your baby is a great way to celebrate the wee one’s impending arrival – and you’ll have a perfectly polished room once he or she is here.

A mobile for your nursery

This beautiful mobile was created by painting plain wooden blocks in a palette of three complementary Resene colours; Resene Quarter Merino, Resene Westar and Resene Romantic.

Planning and decorating a room for your baby is incredibly exciting, but it can also be overwhelming when you don’t know where to start. Here are some helpful tips:

Safety tips

In general, Resene recommends that you should not paint during pregnancy. Waterborne paints contain very low levels of solvents and some none at all, such as the Resene Zylone Sheen VOC Free range. Thus the risk from exposure is very small. However, there are still potential hazards to be avoided. The stretching action when painting walls and ceilings or putting up curtains, if overdone, can cause problems during pregnancy. Of course climbing up and down step ladders, etc, is also an underlying risk. However, if you have some small projects planned, such as painting a picture frame or a cot then the following is recommended:

Testpot projects

Resene testpots are ideal for small projects. You can choose from a huge range of colours without the bother of being left with too much spare paint afterwards.
