DIY Kids Room Make Over - Featuring Nippon Paint Momento Series!
Assalamualaikum and Olla everyone!
As I was on my way back from the Nippon Paint workshop, I couldn’t wait to start the makeover process for my daughter's room. Then.....the weekend came, weee hoooo! I put on my overalls, pulled my hair back and started planning for the makeover. I asked my husband help to purchase Nippon Paint Washi Tape, but he accidentally dropped it off somewhere hahaha.. It did not stop me from pursuing the project though.
The first step is to prime the surface and then wait for it to dry. You have to wait for around 2 hours to ensure that the primer is really dry. If you are using the Nippon Paint Enhancer series, you have to start with the 5200 Interior Sealer instead of the Momento Primer.
The bald guy is responsible for misplacing my much-needed washi tape, lucky his smile is cute. Now, I have to rely on my not-so-steady hand to ensure the end-to-end of the walls plus the corners are neatly painted. Don't give up hope and be focus on your goal. If you really want to get things done, don't let the small things stop you, okay?
The next step is to paint the first layer of colour. What I like about Nippon Paint is that the paint has no smell at all, gone are the days where you have to endure the suffocating paint smell. I also have to mention that the paint is very pigmented with just one coat, I can achieve the colour that I want. You can always put a second coat if you want an even darker coverage. But do remember to wait for it to be completely dry before putting on the next layer.
The first layer is up! Even with that it already gave the room a dash of refreshing colour.
Since I don't have the washi tape, I decided to opt for the stencil technique. This is one of the methods I learned at the workshop. All you need is a cutting tool and the stencil paper (I used a transparent film). Then, just draw your desired pattern and cut around the outline of your desired shape!
The next step is to put the stencil up and then paint inside the shape itself. I am using the criss-cross technique to apply the Nippon Paint Momento Textured Series paint for that special effect.
To make it even more fun and personalized, I decided to create random stardust in between the stars. You can be as creative as you want. I forgot how therapeutic it is to be playing with brushes and paint. It is actually a very fun experience!
We are done! I think it makes a big difference in my kids’ room. Both of them seem to be happy with this makeover done by mummy. Their wall is no longer boring and these two feature walls gave the whole room a boost of a new look.
I felt so accomplished haha! It is the first thing they will see once they open up their door. I am sure you can do even better and can even be more creative than me.
