10 Tips to Going from a Nursery to a Kid's Room


Make a Craft Center

With the addition of a small table and some specialty wall paint, you can make your child's room craft central. Now that your baby isn't a baby anymore, she needs her own space and a few dynamic tools to make expressing herself a little easier. Chalkboard paint is a water-based latex paint that's easy to apply. It goes on just like regular paint, and your child can decorate it with chalk pictures or writing. If you don't want an entire chalkboard wall, frame off a small section, or apply the paint to a poster frame backing you've mounted to the wall vertically. You can also buy magnetic paint primer designed to hold kitchen, alphabet and other magnets in place. When you use the two products in combination, you can create the perfect arts and craft center in your child's room to give it added fun and function.
