The paint experts at Benjamin Moore suggest letting your kid dictate the design of his or her bedroom. For a boy, it could be filled with race cars, fire engines, buses, or trucks – whatever is his favourite. Store-bought stencils or stamps can streamline the process. For a realistic touch, also incorporate traffic signs.
Below, the people at Benjamin Moore explain how to do the walls:
- Prime with Fresh Start Primer. Let it dry.
- Measure the wall area to be used as a roadway. With a pencil line, mark it off. Check with a spirit level to make sure the line is even.
- At the top edge, apply a strip of tape to protect the basecoat from the edge of the roadway.
- Wring out a damp sponge thoroughly. Pour some black paint into a plastic tray or plate. Press the sponge on the paint.
- To avoid messy drips and to get rid of excess paint, stamp the sponge a couple of times onto newspaper.
- Hold the sponge horizontally and press it firmly onto the wall.
- Repeat – slightly overlapping until the road portion of the wall is covered. Be careful not to smear. Don’t worry if the lines are uneven because the road should look rough and textured.
- After stamping, don’t forget to remove the tape – before the paint completely dries.
- Allow the road to dry.
- With a utility knife or scissors, cut a slice of sponge to make the road lines.
- Finally, dip the sponge into Benjamin Moore Golden Orchards paint and make dotted lines above the road.
