We're a mere vacuum and polish away from having the first room finished in our new home (blog post coming in a few days). I know it's only four weeks since we moved in but we've been planning and buying things for my little boy's bedroom since we first viewed the house back in October. It's just been a case of unpacking, painting, papering and putting everything in place. I shared the mood board back in February if you'd like a reminder and there's a sneak peek over on Instagram.
The one part of his room that we hadn't given much thought to was the wall behind the door. Why would we? It's not typically the kind of space that you'd give a second glance, right? But with everything in place, it started to look a bit bare and uninspiring. I considered blackboard paint but then my five year old said that he missed the mountains from his old bedroom and an idea was born for a fun and interactive feature wall.
Here's the plain wall. I think you'll agree, it's a bit dull.
So, I used Frog Tape to mark off the mountains and then painted them in with two coats of white paint.
Next, we added three posters from Desenio - trees, plants and a 'never stop exploring' typography print, all in the 5x7 inch size. Desenio also has a great frame selection, too. The Moebe ones are my favourite and here I used the A5 back aluminium versions.
A massive Lego fan, toy block tape was the finishing touch to make this wall the ultimate play and explore wall, perfect for my five year old.
What do you think?
I love Desenio for cool, affordable posters and prints and these hand drawn-styles ones are ideal for a child's room. They're simple but stylish.
He's super happy with his new wall and we never quite know which Lego constructions we'll find suspended from the toy block tape on any given day.
If you have a small space in need of a revamp, I can definitely recommend a similar feature wall for a low cost but cool way of adding fun and interest to a child's room. Desenio has a great selection of children's posters that you can choose from and you can buy the Lego tape in a rainbow of colours to match.
