A few hours and a pint or two of paint can transform a humdrum piece of furniture into a conversation piece or family heirloom. Hand-painting furniture for your baby’s nursery, your living room, your patio or kitchen not only guarantees you an original piece of furniture, it provides you with the satisfaction that “decorator” pieces from the store will never be able to match.
A teen’s room gives him a place to study, hang out and do his other hobbies, in addition to the obvious sleeping he does there. If your teenage son lets you near his bedroom, make the decorating process a joint effort. Involving him in the process allows him to express his individuality in the bedroom decor. A decorating plan before you begin the process ensures the decor works well together and stays on budget.
Whether you’re newly pregnant with your first child or you’ve finally got the resources to design and decorate your nursery, planning for your baby’s room can be exciting. Choosing patterns and colorful themes that will be visually stimulating for a baby are important in the design process, but there are room requirements that need to be considered. For example, a changing table and a rocking chair could be considered two requirements for a well-designed nursery. A rug can help soften the floor when pacing while holding a baby. Once your nursery is designed, though, you can decorate to your heart’s content.
